Have you ever wondered why we like some colours more than others? Or why did you paint your wall a certain hue? Was it just a randomly picked colour, or is there a reason we always make similar colour choices. Some people claim that we have a proclivity for a certain type of shades and hues, and that this proclivity depends on and expresses our personality. Look around your living room, since this is the room where we send most of our waking hours, and see if you can notice any colour schemes. Then when you have found one (and we are certain that you will), read the following list to see what the colour you choose most often says about you.
Ask yourself – what does yellow remind you of? Bright sunshine, high life energy, and roaring fires, of course. If you gravitate towards yellow, or other warm shades such as red, orange, or peach for that matter, you most probably have a cheerful personality. You follow your own rules and inspire others to do the same. Warm shades make the room look more welcoming and intimate. You probably like having people over.
If, looking around your living room, you see a sea of blues, you are probably a bit introvert. Your home is your oasis and your safe haven from the crazy world. On the other hand, your strong will and determination and a no-nonsense attitude are what drives you. Unlike warm hues, cools expand a room, giving you the feeling of freedom. To avoid the chilly atmosphere, throw in a few brown details in your furniture.
Cool green shades are easier on the eyes, because they have a lower intensity. For this reason they remind us of something soothing and peaceful, like wide-open fields. If light green appeals to you, you are probably a good listener. Someone who calms other people down. You let them express their feelings and thoughts.
Explosive pink reveals an explosive personality. You are most likely adventurous and tempestuous. You are always on the lookout for new experiences, you have to try and see everything. Pink loving person is someone who is easily bored by everyday, mundane things.
It takes courage to go for brown painted walls. Brown coloured walls and décor show that you are responsible, diligent, and hardworking. You take your obligations seriously, and leave nothing to chance. Other people respect you, and you value their opinion.
Maybe colours are not your thing. Do not worry. This just means you are a practical, even-keeled and satisfied person. This also goes for all neutral colours, like grey, beige, and ivory. You like permanence, cleanliness, and a classic look. To avoid the sterile and ‘boring’ look, work in some dark and light toned details in furniture, and plenty of texture.
