Welcome to the first day of KniCroBlo week here at chez Voie de Vie.
I love color.
It does not confuse me.
I once again (I did this last year, too) decided to take a photo of my stash. I am once again just slightly embarrassed to admit that this is not all of my stash ... but I did get all of the major color groups represented.
The greens and blues in the back are definitely my staple colors - I go to them all the time. I have many blue and green FOs. The peach, creams and red from the middle to front are colors I also love a lot, but don't always wear. Pink can get too sugary sweet; red is great but only in the right tone - too much of a blue undertone and it will wash me out. Brown and natural are great colors for me, but can get a little boring. I love purple and do have some of it in my stash (the middle of the picture), as well as a few FOs. The one color virtually absent from the stash is yellow. I am not a big fan of yellow - lemons are great, but not to wear. At least not for me. The orange side of yellow is just fine, however.
Because orange (even in muted form) is powerfully good.
If my designing hat is on, I will in many instances want to use orange in some hue. This has been a great year for orange (thanks, Pantone for naming a shade of tangerine color of the year).

the blue/green theme?
I always think a lot about color. How about you? Do you know which colors work best for you? Did writing today's post illuminate some personal color insight? Definitely leave a comment and let me know all about your color theories.
