The Importance of Color



I drive a black car – my 4th black car in a row. When offered a choice, I really want to drive a black car.

When selecting items of practical (or impractical) use, how important is it to you to have them be a certain color? Does it in someway make the item more pleasurable to use?

  1. Given a choice, color absolutely makes things more enjoyable to me…In the ideal world, I’d sleep in sheets where the top and bottoms were different solid colors. I just made a blanket with rose colored seersucker and teal gingham flannel. I’d be all over Fiestaware for dishes. Heck, I even look at the colors in a two pack of toothbrushes and pick accordingly. And, I know that I’d rather write in orange covered Rhodias than black.

    But, I am also well aware that choice in colors for many things is a luxury and not at all connected to the function of a thing…and I can deal with that too. SO glad I dream in color.

  2. Color in the items that I buy and use regularly is very important to me !

    If given a choice in color I always go for the color! I love Habana journals in Anise for instance. It’s the perfect color for me.

    I love colorful inks, but tend to stick with color families that make me happy. I like color in pens too – and I think I only own one black pen!

    That being said, I tend to wear neutrals, including a lot of black, but I always wear a colorful over shirt.

  3. I just bought myself an Edison Beaumont in purple dew, and I inked it with Iroshizuku Murasaki Shikibu, so I guess I do try to buy purple stuff when possible. I don’t have much of it in my wardrobe, but when I see something pretty that is purple, I tend to gravitate towards it.
