National Color Day 2015

Happy National Color Day!

What does your favorite color say about you? Today was created to draw attention and understand the importance of color in our lives. Color has an impact on how we feel, in our actions and even in how productive we can be. Look to these interpretations to see how color may be influencing you:

White is a lack of color, a blank slate in purity and innocence. White has a fresh washed quality of opportunity and happiness like a crisp linen sheet crackling in the wind under a bright sun. Yet white can also be cold, austere and incomplete like snow needing the experience of other color for warmth and vitality.

Like white, yellow is also a color of happiness, like the feeling you get as the bright, happy sun brushes your cheek. The good natured sun packs loads of essential Vitamin D. Yellow is approachable, fun loving and happy go lucky in color like the iconic smiley face.

Red is a power color, think Donald Trump’s red power tie or the passionate symbolism of love in a red rose held high on a stem of thorns. Red expresses a swagger of confidence, a can do attitude with the passion and excitement for a meaningful objective despite challenge and adversity. See red and conquer!

Tried and true blue is comfortable like your favorite pair of faded and trusted jeans. You’ve been through a lot together and earned every tear and weak point yet there is strength in every curve and nuance, fit like a glove and seemingly made just for you. No other pair will be quite like your favorite pair of jeans. From the darkest shade of deep ocean navy to the lightest stone washed, sun kissed sky blue the color is durable, loyal and lasting in a peaceful encompassing way.

Green brings a newfound balance relaxed and ongoing like a just mowed lawn and the emergence of sprouts and leaves on a brisk spring day. New life, new beginnings and the opportunity in the crack of a bat or the celebratory rage of cowbells at a rower’s regatta signify the virtuous season of green. Green is identified with grace under pressure, a cool head weighing potential and upcoming options.

Black is traditionally associated with grieving and vast completeness. But the color black is so much more. Black is engaging, the combination of all color. Then again black has depth, setting off all color yet noticed first because of its integrity. That’s what makes black the classic go to choice like the perfect, coveted little black dress. Black is inclusive yet maintains a presence unique onto itself. What other color comes close?

Then again we can shake up color blending perspective as we go:

Pink is sophisticated as the softer side of the power and passion of red when exposed to the open and stark sincerity of white.

Orange is vibrant in the blending of red and yellow often used in warning but the yellow also brings happiness to the powerful red.

And finally the royal hue of purple, the blending of red and blue, power and trust, fit for a loyal Royal.

So then, what do these color perceptions reveal about you?
