Color Philosophy.

Lately I've been asking myself why do I have so many red clothes in my closet when I don't like red. I really dislike lime green and red is right up there with that color, so why does my eyes go to the red and why do I buy red? I like navy blue and white, think it looks neat. I like all shades of lavender and purple. For years my bedroom was lavender and white. A friend used to call my bedroom with those colors "The sex room". I hated for her to say that because to me it was pretty and calm. After many years I decided it was time to change my colors and what did I go to? Red bedspread with my white iron bed. White curtains with red trim, red flower pictures with red frames. I used to know someone who when down would say "it just makes me want to go home and put on something brown". Now I like brown and beige and black. I don't find them depressing. Although my truck is beige and I want my next one (if there is a next one) to be metallic red. I don't like red so why do I keep choosing it? Am I wanting attention? I've always been quiet, quieter then I am now. When I tend to tell John something a few days later he will tell me the same thing and say his daughter or his sister told him that. My husband used to do the same thing. Recently I told a man about a man we know and something he did to help a community. The next time I saw the man he told me what I told him about the man and where the community is as if I didn't know it and I was hearing it for the first time. I wanted to say "I'm the one who told you that", but I didn't. Guess I should have just gone home and put on something "red". I like my blouses that are red, white, and blue and maybe some stars for buttons  but I have two red purses, two pair of red shoes, several pair of red earring and necklaces and I don't like red. I have a lot of red tee shirts with different pictures or "sayings" on them and I don't like red. Does anyone have an insight into this, I'm really curious. Is there any reason why you like or dislike a certain color?

when I was growin' up
my mom said
she liked red on me
but, not on her
she's blonde
I'm brunette
red can stick out
like a stop sign (?)
I used to have
a pair of red shoes
low comfort heels
I had every color
they made in that style
black, white, copper, navy blue
I don't mind
if there's a
bit of red in
a flower print dress

Methinks you give a lot of folks ideas!

funny how we humans are about colors, we have our favorites and cannot understand why every one else isn't crazy about them. Every once in a while I will see an UGLY color on a new car and say, "Someone honestly loved that color, they had to."

I like tans, brown, and black. I don't know why...

WEAR RED!!! down deep you love it!!!

Next time you tell someone something, pinch them, and they will remember it was you who told them.... Love from South CArolina.

I do not know why except maybe deep down inside you do like the color red, more than you realize. I'm a purple girl, myself.

I have bought red too Paula in the past,but I don't like myself in red at all.LOL!! So you have a mate haaaaa.I never put red with white though on anything,not even my plants in the garden.Someone once told me it's a sign of sickness to come or bad luck,so I steer clear now of red if possible.I love purples and lilacs,Browns and oranges all autumn warm colours.So sorry I have no idea why you choose red so often.Hope someone comes up with an answer for you.Take Care God Bless.

No idea, red is a good color.

Now, I don't like pink or lavender or any shade there of - with the exception of royal purple. Why? I believe my mother made my clothes pink and lavender when I was little, trying to 'girl me up'. I like green and blue, and I don't mind red at all.
