Saturday: Question of the Week~

Happy Saturday Everyone!!

I just loved last week's question of the week post.  It was so fun to hear from so many of you....and to get to know my readers a little bit more. 

So here's this week's question (it's a multi-parter)...

What is your favorite color?  Do you find yourself wearing or decorating with it alot? 


I have two equally favorite colors:  Gray and Pink.  (That sounds straight out of the 1980's.)  I wear both of them a lot...gray more than pink.  And I decorate with gray a lot too...although recently I've been making an effort to bring some other tones into my decor.  I'm afraid I really don't use pink in my decor at all (just a touch in the Princess' bedroom) The boys outnumber the girls 2 to 1 at our house, so I think there would be a revolt if I tried to decorate with pink in the rest of the house.

Can't wait to hear what you all have to say!

xoxo

For some reason I am gravitating to grays...I have painted two rooms gray and plan on painting my guest bath gray. It's the new neutral for sure!

I always return to tone on tone, or to some folks, a lot of beige. My favorite paint color is tobacco road. I have painted my last two houses with that color.

I decorate in sage, beige, blue and maroon. It's hard incorporating it all into my decor, but I sure do try! :) ~ Jamie P.S. I wear mostly blue and green...

I use a lot of greens, reds and yellows in my decor. I also love blues. I have been seeing quite a bit of gray and yellow combos lately and really love those colors together too. It is so hard for me to choose!

I was always a brown girl. I decorated with browns & tans with dark orange and mossy green accents in a house we built about 5 or 6 years ago. I wore brown & camel all the time too. Then one day my mom brought home a Color Me Beautiful book from the library. My whole life I thought I was supposed to wear brown and I was dead wrong. Turned out I'm a "winter". I wear brown occasionally but its so true that grey & black & white make my face look much brighter so I only buy cool colors now and own a ton of grey (and pink! Love to wear pink :). Unfortunately our couch & chairs we invested in years ago are tan & brown respectively so our main living space is still in those warm colors. Our powder room is grey though, with a pop of pink! Someday when we build again I'll switch it all up & go with sea blues and greens and greys!

I'm a neutral girl for the most part. I love grays in any shade. My house is a lot of browns, grays and whites with color accents switched out each season. I use a lot of green as well since it can be incorporated for any season. I go a little further with my wardrobe though and wear many different colors as long as they don't make me look washed out LOL! I do tend to wear mostly solids though. Have a great weekend!

My favorite colors are the colors of nature... orange, aqua, brown, red, and certain greys. Years ago I actually owned the Color Me Beautiful book and it showed me as an "autumn" which I thought was insane... me? wear russet? or salmon? Now I wear those colors all the time and black. For decor our walls are mostly tans w/ a couple of exceptions... tomato red in our kitchen and harley davidson orange in the master bath (it was orange when we moved in.... its about to become white because it has NO windows.) The colors of the sea/beach fascinate me in particular so you will find aqua, tan, brwons used very heavily in our home.

I really don't have a favorite color and that is difficult when it comes to decorating or painting.

Misty said...

Love this questions and I always think about it. For me, they are totally opposite! My favorite colors to wear are coral, fuschia, teal, turquoise, white, grey, purple etc. I do not decorate with any of those colors. My fave colors to decorate with dark greens, tan, white, off white, brown, black, brownish dark reds, pumpkin, slate blue/grey, mustard. All colors that I do not wear in clothing.

I love Pink. Always have and always will. I were it as well as decorate with it. We are moving this summer back into a family home and one bath is pink and i'm doing it up bigtime with lots of black, white and grey accents. Black chandy and all.

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) said...

Blue is my favourite colour and I wear it and decorate with it. I love to add lots of white, and neutrals like black and tans too.

Jen said...

i'm like elizabeth and love decorating with the blues....but i want to do the tv room gray this time...what is your favorite one to use? i'm having a hard time picking!!!

Kim said...

Pink.. I love it even more now that I am in a house with all girls (besides my husband.) Although in decorating I am still an earth tones kind of girl. You can never go wrong with a good griege.

Ooooh it's hard to say my favorite favorite but maybe aqua, different shades of it. Maybe it's cause I love the water. Also love light greeens, coral, lavender. I don't wear so much of the coral but mostly aqua and lavender. Since my hair is some silver and mostly gray I can wear shades I didn't used to be able to. Can't really wear light pastels. They wash me out, I need more intense jewel colors.
I do decorate with aqua, and all of above. Depends on what room it is. Our bedroom and bathroom are a bluish-grayish green and lavender. So soothing and serene.
This is so fun, makes me think about my ideas. Thanks for sharing, really enjoy your blog.

hi Wendy
wrote a similar post about pink and grey recently - more from a painting I'd done of a Galah, but i also don't use pink at home as my daughter doesn't like it and so I don't even get to use it in her room.

My favorite color is green. Mostly sage greens. I do wear it occasionaly, but decorate mostly with it. I just love the fresh, natural feel of it! :-)

RUNSTANDSTILL said...

In decorating, I love neutrals like beige and white. And my all-time favorite color is yellow!

Keeping it Cozy said...

I love a white and wood palette, but I can't ever seem to get away from incorporating the colors blue and red into my decorating!
