In the process of all the remodeling and redecorating I’ve been doing I’ve had this slow awareness that my favorite color is changing. When I was young, I’m not sure really what my favorite color was. I think it was yellow, then orange. I once had a hot pink bedroom and loved that too. Even the carpet was hot pink. Another favorite bedroom had light blue floral wallpaper with white plantation shutters. Loved that room too.
As an adult though my favorite color seemed to land on purple. I went through a very long period where everything had purple in it. I had purple clothes, purple bedding, I even bought purple roses for my garden.
I still like purple, but I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite color. Now I’m leaning towards blue.
Blues that are tranquil and inspire peace and serenity in me. Blues, that although are considered a cool color, make me think of tropical heat and hot sandy beaches. One could argue that that is still in the purple family, just a lighter hue of it. I also am now very much into the lime greens and browns. Accented with splashes of the hot pink again.
Do we ever have just one favorite color? Or is it that we end up with a few favorites? Is it also that we grow and learn that there are a few colors in life that make us feel good, some that don’t, so we surround ourselves with more than just one that looks good on us (for clothing) or feels good (for decorating).
What sayeth you? What is your favorite color? Or do you have more than one? What does your favorite color inspire in you?
