Is Blue Your Favorite Color?

Blue may be the favorite color for the majority of the population but I have to admit: I have a problem with it. I know, this is very strange, I don't understand it myself. I might even be afraid of this color and I really don't know why. This feeling goes way back to my childhood. Being a little red-haired girl with freckles I remember vividly shopping for clothes with my mother (it was in Trieste, Italy, sigh!). The nice lady wanted me to try out a blue sweater and I refused saying that I didn't like blue! She was very surprised and said to me: "If I had your hair and your skin I would wear only blue!" I went trough many color phases in my life but I never had a "blue phase". I've been trying lately to incorporate more blue in my wardrobe and I ended having some nice pieces. Mind you, people who know me noticed it and gave me compliments - I guess it was so obvious that I never wore blue! But I still have nothing blue as decorating element in my house with the exception of my sons's room where he could choose for himself. You can find here a nice explication of the meaning of blue color, and other colors as well. Here are some pictures from my decorating file named "Blue Goes"

Dear Yasmine,
for my clothes I love dark blue in combination with white but for our home I prefer light blue details.

Thank you for your lovely comment. Du sprichst Deutsch :)?

I love those pictures, I always envisioned having a modern blue and white home with bright green accents.

Yasmine said...

Angie, I think you're right: the clue is to make it modern.

I like deep blue and turquoise. But I don't wear much blue except for jeans... and I like my jeans deep blue :-D

I don't really have a favorite color. It depends on the season... weird, eh?

I do like colors though!

wow the photos you share are all so lovely. made me realize that blue is indeed a good color for the home--given the right shade.

in my parent's home, they have a blue room, it was the guest room and i like relaxing in that room...blue relaxes me.
