I can't think of a better way [for me] to end the year than with another list of interesting "news". This list combines my fascination with colors with my love of revelation - particularly about my inner world.
The list challenges us to consider "jump starting" a new decor where we live by having a painting marathon. Okay, so that might not be everyone's dream, but the notion that the colors we choose, according to psychologists, speak "volumes" about us certainly is intriguing. What colors would you choose?
Shades of Red
For centuries, red has meant passion, and that's why getting two dozen red roses from a special someone means "I love you big time." People who are partial to shades of red, from apple and rose red to tomato and fire engine, generally are optimistic, outgoing and passionate about life.
Shades of Blue
Are you blue? Those who lean toward blue generally are calm, compassionate and follow a steady course. Reminiscent of both sky and water, shades of blue appeal to those with peaceful and quiet personalities.
Shades of Green
Really going green means lathering swaths of sage or leaf green on the walls. Green sends out natural vibes in a big way, and people who want to be surrounded by shades of green tend to like balance and can be counted on to be civilized.
Shades of Yellow
It's a cliche that yellow is sunny, and those who pick shades of this color for their decor tend to be sunny, too. But they go a lot deeper than that: People who love yellow also tend to be intellectual and adventurous and place a high value on freedom.
Shades of Purple
From lavender to eggplant, plum and dark regal purple, shades of this mix of blue and red add drama and flair to any decor. Purple lovers are pretty dramatic themselves, and they tend to be artistic and unconventional.
Renowned for both its sexiness and class, black is best used in small doses in decor lest its powerful aura overwhelm the space. Lovers of all things black tend to impress in an understated way and generally promote the idea that they aren't telling all.
Shades of White
People who choose white for their surroundings likely believe that "pure as the driven snow" is more than a cliche. Using shades of white is a clue to a personality that finds comfort in simplicity and sees the world through a youthful, innocent lens.
Shades of Orange
A space filled with shades of orange exudes vitality and cheer. The people who decorate rooms with orange hues tend to be outgoing, social and easy to be with, even if they do like to be the center of attention.
Shades of Gold
Gold, the color of wealth, opulence and glamour, exudes boldness with warmth and luxury. This shade also has a long, regal history, so traditionalists may opt for gold, too, providing an air of welcoming elegance.
Shades of Gray
Those who decorate in all gray seek peace and tranquility and have an eye for modern interior design. As the shade between white and black, those who decorate in gray are partial to compromise.
Shades of Pink Blush
Pink is the color of passion and affection. Those who decorate with pink adore attention and are often charismatic. Soft blushes offer a delicate look to a room. Pair pinks with gray and blacks for a modern take.
Shades of Maroon
A mature personality chooses a maroon color palette. Less bright than red, those who decorate in this shade are generous, yet they know what they want. Controlled passion is the name of the game for accents, furniture and wall colors in maroon.
Shades of Brown
Love brown? Maybe you also have a stubborn streak? People who like brown prefer stability and like to be dependable for their friends and family, but they can also be obstinate. Brown decor depicts roots and helps make a room feel grounded. Find ways to complement this shade with an accent color to avoid making the room drab.
Shades of Beige
If sophistication and modern aesthetic appeal to you, but white and brown are two stark, beige is a warm neutral that's ideal for those who seek simplicity, yet solid, earthy shade. People who decorate in beige have a lightness to their personalities and often enjoy calmness.
Shades of Citron
If you blend yellow and green and let them age gracefully, that's citron. Shades of citron suggest vitality and longevity like yellow, but also have an element of harmony and balance. This color complements dark woods and hardwood floors. Those with citron are probably dependable, yet opinionated friends.
