I was watching a rerun of Big Bang Theory the other day and they got to talking about colors and feelings. Raj showed up at Sheldon's apartment and said he felt blue. Sheldon asked him why he was sad and Raj answered he wasn't so sad as lonely. Sheldon stated he didn't know what color lonely was. Raj asked what he meant, and Sheldon explained (in his usual condescending manner) that blue was sad, yellow was scared, red was angry and green was envious. Lonely didn't have a color. After some discussion, they decided that lonely was orange.
This got me thinking about colors and feelings and the colors I don't care for. I'm not a fan of orange and yellow. They are not colors I look good in, and they are not colors that make me feel good. Yellow is supposed to be a happy, cheery color, especially for kitchens. Not a fan. I like yellow when it's with other colors, but it can't take center stage for me.
As for orange--I like the darker more terra cotta colors and the occasional peach color, but it just doesn't do much for me.
Now my favorite colors are green and purple. Green especially. So much so that I was going through my sweater collection this fall and found that I had like 9 sweaters in varying shades of green. I cleared out a few of them. But when I got a new sweater before Christmas, it was another green sweater.
I like purple too. There is an healthy amount of purple in my shirt collection. But then I think I look good in both green and purple. You gravitate toward the colors that draw you. On the other hand I have next to no yellow and nothing orange in my wardrobe. What I have of yellow was given to me--I didn't pick it out.
