A Word Of Color

Just in case you have a little time on your hands this weekend, may I offer a word of color?


Benjamin Moore has developed a fun on-line tool to promote ben, their new line of paint.  That’s nice, but I like this tool because it can help you to actually identify which colors you’d be comfortable living with.


Every color evokes an emotional response.  Your response is unique to you.  Everyone has a color preference based on their memories, experiences and tastes.


As a color consultant, it’s very important for me to help my clients pinpoint these color preferences.  It’s amazing what people discover about themselves!


In my workshops, I often tell the story of a lady who was adverse to the color yellow because her mother made her wear an “ugly yellow dress” to the prom.  On the other hand, many people see yellow as a hue of hope — a color that casts away anger.


As this tool demonstrates, sometimes we can identify a color we like with just one word, a feeling or both.


My word creation is at the top.  Click Here to try it yourself.  You can create more than one.  Let me know if this post has been helpful to you, and have a fun weekend!

  1. How fun! It is important to understand the feeling you want in a room before you paint. Thanks for sharing!
