Favourite colours make us Happy!
Each of us, has favourite colours…..! I love them all. I, am drawn to a few favourites from time to time and sometimes they match the Pantone Color of the Year.
I have always LOVED jewel tones – they are even in my wardrobe. But, until I was asked this question by my coach:
Describe your home. What special details make it personal – colours, furniture, room arrangement, etc.
I hadn’t thought about colours around me in my home. I know crazy right!?
That had me thinking mostly about the colours in our house. I like the living room colour, its like Pantone 16-1334, because it allows the jewel tones to show up more.
Does your home showcase your favourite colours?
When I was working on my Colour Journal a few years ago, I remember looking up the meaning behind “Brown” which is what family our living room is painted.
The color brown is a friendly yet serious, down-to-earth color that relates to security, protection, comfort and material wealth.
That is exactly the feeling I get from our living room colour.

I pulled out my Colour Journal in my recent “No MoJo” mood. I enjoyed flipping through what I have in there already – paint chips showing primaries, secondaries, tints, shades, tones, split complementaries, tetradic, complementaries, analogous and then, I have magazine clippings showing colour combinations I like, some of my personal photos showing awesome colours, etc.
I hadn’t thought of my home and my favourite colours much before…..I am thinking now of adding NEW artwork with my favourite colours, pillows, and accessories. My bedroom needs more of ME in there also!
So, you see how a Colour Journal or even just the question my coach posed to me could inspire creativity. I have hordes of ideas for pillows, art quilts, etc. now in my bullet journal to go to when I would like to start a new project.
Makes me happy whenever I flip in Colour Journal, so I can see why my coach asked that question.
