Question of the Week

I wanted to include a question of the week onto my blog. So my first question is this:

What is your favorite color?




I think this is such a simple question but one that provokes a lot of thought. For me there are different answers depending on what I am thinking about. I mean my all time favorite color is green. But I never wear it because I don't like how I look in green. My favorite color to wear is blue. And when I am stamping or decorating I like to use earthy, fall type colors.

I find that colors speaks to different people in different ways. Below is a list of colors and what they "mean". What do your colors say about you?




Color
Meaning
RED:
warmth, love, anger, danger, boldness, excitement, speed, strength, determination, desire, courage

ORANGE:
cheerfulness, low cost, affordability, enthusiasm, stimulation, creativity
YELLOW:
attention-grabbing, comfort, liveliness, cowardliness, hunger, optimism, overwhelm, Summer, comfort, liveliness, intellect, happiness, energy

GREEN:
durability, reliability, environmental, luxurious, optimism, well-being, nature, calm, relaxation, Spring, safety, honesty, optimism, harmony, freshness

BLUE:
peace, professionalism, loyalty, reliability, honor, melancholia, boredom, coldness, Winter, depth, stability, professionalism, honor, trust

PURPLE:
power, royalty, nobility, elegance, sophistication, artificial, luxury, mystery, royalty, elegance, magic

GRAY:
conservatism, traditionalism, intelligence, serious, dull, uninteresting

BROWN:

BLACK:
Elegance, sophistication, formality, power, strength, illegality, depression, morbidity, night
WHITE:
Cleanliness, purity, newness, virginity, peace, innocence, simplicity, sterility, snow



I had to look up pink seperately

Pink:calm feelings, to neutralize disorder, relaxation, acceptance, contentment, color of beauty
