One of my favorite things about Spring would be seeing the color PINK in bloom. It’s just such a happy, cheerful color.

Don’t you think?

 

Pantone’s Color of Year

Every year Pantone selects one color for what they proclaim is the “color of the year.”

This year it is a shade of green that is hard to define. While I think this color ordeal is a brilliant way to market their brand, who among us is really going to adjust our interior color choices based on a shade selection that changes yearly.

In addition, the color green (similar to yellow) is probably one of the most debated colors in all of interior decorating. It is a color that is used sparingly when in the hands of most professional decorators. Green is also a color that one either loves or hates.

I’ll let Pantone have their fun but you won’t find me loading up on the green unless it is greenbacks.

Favorite Color

I asked my husband of forty years last night if he knew my favorite color. Without hesitation, he answered “pink.” He was right.

If I asked him what his favorite color would be, I know he would reply “whatever color you like.”

To some of us, color enhances our life and makes us happy. My sweet husband is just happy. Whatever your color, find a place in your home for it. It is what sets you apart from everyone else. It is what makes your home a little bit happier.
