First I want to thank respondents in advance! This one is about favourite colours - I want to know if your favourite colours differ depending on the context. Do you have favourite colours when it comes to yourself - but others when it comes to decor? Do you have different favourite colours within nature - for instance some people love the colours of autumn but wouldn't think of wearing these themselves!

Hello Art!! :) Well, Im a dark hued kind of person. I like dark plums, greens, marooons and blues. I have most of my house decorated with these colors, but I dont wear them for clothing really. I have terrible fashion sense and jeans and a tshirt are about all my closet contains. For dress clothes I stick to mainly black and white, or dark blues. Seems you cant go wrong there! I dont own much red, although I like the color, but not on me. Wait! I have a red tshirt! LOL Oh and some things I cant mention hehe But I like red on others, and I think red cars are really pretty and sporty looking. I guess I do have some pastels in my house, in the bathroom only though. I dont have a lot of clothing that is pastel, some but not much. I dont think I have great color sense really. Im not a great decorator or a clothes buyer. If I dont have a friend with me when buying clothes, Im lost! lol Bay xx

I like the jewel colours - the darker richer colours. I love red, but its more a secret favourite colour. Not one I'd actually wear. I think I'd really stand out then. I'm not into the pastels. I wouldn't take a friend with me shopping - I take far too long to find things that fit and that I like!

I definitely prefer different colors for different hings, For example, when asked the standard "what's your favorite color" I generally think of blue first. Yet I don't like blue cars, blue clothes (on me) or blue flowers. I love reds and yellows for curtains but wouldn't wear either. I think soft white linens look so inviting but I don't like that my car is white. LOL I'm sure you get the picture with out me listing off much more. So why do I say blue is my favorite color? Oddly enough I can'treallythink of any partiular item that I LOVE in blue. When I think about it it's just soothing and pretty.

What is a good question? I'm so confused by your answer. Are you saying that you have you have the same favourite colours when it comes to all areas - like dressing and your house's decor? :)

My favorite colors are Green, Blue and Orange. I also prefer the colors of fall. The colors of the falling leaves. I admire the beauty of nature. :)

Yes but do your favourite colours differ when it comes to favourite colours for clothes and decor?

I love purple and pink on objects and on backgrounds (my Friendster background is purple, pink, and black, while my blog is purple on black). I have lots of pink tops, while I have a lot of purple accessories. I also like brown for tops, belts, and shoes/flip-flops. I love it when the sky is clear light blue and when the leaves are almost a shiny green, but I don't wear that much light blue or green. And I also love the black-and-white combination for my outfits and for furniture.

I love the colors of Fall and the Desert in nature, but love reds, blues and black to wear. Black is my overall favorite color and I could decorate in a modern style using black and browns.

I Love colour BLUE! And only blue..Everytime i go out and do some shopping. I always pick something that is blue.. Even my room is painted blue. Everything you see inside my room is blue. Because i feel Blue is hugging me and i feel comfortable and secure whenever theres blue around. I feel happy and if im sad i just go up to my room and lock myself out. Color for the day..BLUE!

I love almost all colours depending on where they are. I love jungle green but I cant wear it at all. I love pink but cant use it as a colour scheme in my house but in the wedding setting i will definately use it. If all colours were blended nicely together then i can love them all.

I would like to have different colors for different things. I don’t like my hair to look grey. I would like my lips always in red and my face to look rosy. Of course when laughing I would like people around to see my white clean teeth. I like watching snowy landscape but I don’t like the walls of my bedroom to be painted in white color as it would be quite monotonous and boring. Walls of ocean blue could make me feel comfy and relaxed all the time

In nature, with decor, or in clothing I love royal blue and orange.I love to wear royal blue. My ideal kitchen, the walls would be a terra cotta and I love the perfect sunset and when the sky at dusk is a deep blue.
