Some enjoy have colorful items around them, while others are not interested in having a space filled with various colors. There have been several really good posts here about colors and personality, so this won't be a repeat of what you have already read. Some have written that those who enjoy blue surroundings like life to be calm. Those of us who enjoy brighter colors might enjoy noise and a lot of people around them. The photo here is a bright light, filled with what appears to be orange, reds and a bit of yellow. Do you like things that are this bright in your space, or is it a bit too much?

@PatZAnthony True. I had my walls painted in soft colors for decades. Now I´m slowly changing that.

I try to practice Feng Shui and I use colors in areas that define certain areas if life. I do have color around but Blue is by far my favorite color

I do not like blue, but I also do not like too bright colors. I prefer soft neutral colors, nothing too bright.

Do you mean you like pastel colors? I love pastel colors best. Nothing beats a pale pink or yellow! My room is a light peach in color, and I love it!

For me, my color tendencies depends on what it is . . . I like a bunch of different colors! As far as these warm/hot colors, I do like them as accents for space, but perhaps not as the main color. But again it depends on the space (for a bedroom probably not . . . but for a fun room, maybe!

Bright colors like the one shared here would not be helpful in most spaces @much2say

@PatZAnthony I could see it as spot colors on certain decor pieces . . . but as color for furniture or walls, it'd be a bit much!

This would not be for me Pat. I like more subdued colors or pastels. I also like blacklights on the flipside.

Being surrounded by bright colors gives you a lively feeling...but mild colors makes your mind to relax

Red is my favorite color but I don't decorate with that color. We sell homes so often and since buyers prefer neutrals, I stick with neutral colors...except in my clothes! What I don't like are pastels....I don't own pinks, purples, light blue.

That is interesting @jstory07 Neutral colors are more calming, so probably what many would like. Wearing bright colors is for me too. These are just more fun.

While blue is my favorite color, I do like bright colors. Some of the art quilts Anne makes have colors that pick up the light really well.

I love soft shades of gray-blue and things around, calm and more serene. My husband loves bright, vibrant colors and lots of noise, with excitement all the time! lol Somebody did their homework, on this subject:)

I am a big fan of pastels as I keep my bedroom walls a light peach color and my kitchen is somewhat pale pink. I like the color thought I didn't choose it that was my mom's job of picking the color, but I agreed with her it is beautiful!
