When I was a child, I loved memorizing all the Crayola crayon colors & was envious when they created new names years ago. To this day, I still reference some of these colors by their names, like Carnation Pink or Macaroni & Cheese.
As a young adolescent, I receive the nickname “Rainbow Brite” because of my penchant for wearing saturated colors and neon.
Today, the clothes hanging in my closet are arranged by color. When I create spreadsheets at work, I color code the text and columns. I considered recovering all my books in one matching shade, but vetoed that idea because I can find the book I need faster by recalling its color.
Simply put, color (and love) rules my world. I believe colors have their own unique energy and purpose. I draw inspiration from color and go through “color of the month” phases.
Are you as color-oriented as I am? Do you love color but are hesitant to use it? Do you want to try out a new color scheme but are unsure how to create it? Do you just like to look at pretty things?
That’s why I’m creating a blog series centered around color, “Get Your Color On!” This series will highlight decor and tips for decorating with the featured color, color schemes, and other bloggers’ projects using this color. I will also discuss the color’s symbolism and how to create a certain energy with said color.
First in the series and coming soon: the greens of Spring.
