Color Test

Do you have a favorite color? Doesn't everyone? Mine is blue. I know, big surprise. Color can say a lot about a person, especially the colors they use in their home.

Country Living from Elements of Style

White: Symbolic of purity, has strong connotation of youth.
I have white slip covers in my house, but all they're saying is "Wash me! Wash me!"


Celerie Kemble

Turquoise: Complex, imaginative and original.


Palmer Weiss from La Dolce Vita

Orange:The color of luxury and pleasure. Appeals to the flamboyant and fun loving person.


Peter Dunham


Green: The color of harmony and balance. Symbolizes hope, renewal and peace.


Melissa Rufty

Pink: Symbolizes love and affection.


Better Homes and Garden from Elements of Style

Blue: Soft, soothing, compassionate. Blue is the color of deliberation.


HGTV Green Home


Yellow: The color of happiness and wisdom and imagination.


Ruthie Sommers


Red: The color of strength, health and vitality.



Now you know what the colors mean, but what do the colors you like say about you? Can the colors you like determine your personality? Want to find out? I found a great test at Glidden Paints. Click here.



It was pretty accurate when I took it. How did you do? Don't you love a test you don't have to study for?

  3. Love that yellow striping and the red room-always love red! But it's the hardest color to paint...

  4. My first choice would be white. And I like hints of aqua/turquoise/greens. But mostly neutrals for me!

  5. I HEART green! :-) But, really I love ALL color. I took that test and it was tough to say I loved green before blue and blue before orange, etc.

    I love, love, love yellow stripes!
