Color Conversation. I’m one who definitely loves color but that includes both bold and subtle, contrasts and neutrals, clear and muted. // (1) I do not have a favorite color. I am drawn to different colors at different times of the year, often correlating with the seasons. // (2) Right now I am feeling pulled to golds, oranges, purples, and teal. We’re nearing Fall. // (3) The colors I chose for my October wedding were maize and eggplant, reminiscent of the goldenrod and ironweed found in the fields in September. // (4) I look best in cool, clear colors, contrasts, jewel tones. // (5) My bedroom is yellow with white trim set off by black furniture, giving it a look like a colonial “Lincoln bedroom” look. Red is an accent color. // (6) I love the rich tones of deep red, burgundy, gold, pine green…the traditional elegant colors of Christmas. // (7) I have to have one “spring” room in my house. That means colors of pastels of pale pink and pale green (sometimes pale yellow)…so I can feel airy spring any time of the year just by walking into the room. // (8) I adore whites. I wish I could have more whites/ neutrals in my home but alas, I have grandsons! // (9) One of my favorite dresses I made for Lydia had a small muted green leaf pattern with a pinafore of red geranium print. I have always been attracted to red geraniums. // (10) Sunflowers with their bright gold and texture always make me smile! // (11) One of my favorite scenes is winter white snow with icy pale blue when it is really cold. (12) My mother made a cake for missionary meeting at church when I was little. The islands of Hawaii were covered with green coconut and the icing around it was a light blue. I remember thinking about how I liked those two colors together. // (13) When Caleb was little, he was drawn to neon orange and bright pink. He also liked pouring things. Once he got ahold of my bright orange container that was FULL of liquid Tide and poured it all over the carpet in the basement. I only bought powder detergent after that. Trying to decorate a bedroom with bright orange and pink for a boy was a challenge. I came up with tropical fish! // (14) I love the colors from the twist Dairy Queen ice cream cone. // (15) Why does denim photograph in such a rich indigo blue? // (16) My favorite color crayon in the Crayola box was magenta. // (17) A favorite memory is the river of purple t-shirts flowing in downtown Cleveland as Ed and I participated in the Alzheimer’s Walk. // (18) I love the colors of the earth which change with the seasons. The colors are predictable and bring a sense of peace that all is well. // (19) I marvel at how the right combination of multiple colors can create a mood and evoke emotion.
