Last, but hopefully not least...

So, yes, many esteemed design-junkie blogstresses have posted their results to House Beautiful's Color Personality Quiz. Since I just received my September issue last FRIDAY, I'll cordially provide my quiz results as a last sigh to another lovely HB issue...

1. What's the first color you see in the morning? White Walls - think art gallery, matte white (but without a lot of cool art :(
2. What color are your eyes? Light brown (I like to think of them as the color of Tigereye)
3. What color do you wear the most? I wear all colors, but my "go to" is black.

4. What color do you never wear? Maroon! (Something inherent about being a UT alum, I suppose...)

5. What color do you wear when you want to feel sexy? Black (hey, it's slimming), or white - as in white shirt, great jeans à la Cameron

6. What color gets you the most compliments? Orange and Turquoise.

7. What color is your lipstick? I wear Chanel Glossimers in Blizzard - a rosy nude gloss - it's a bit pricey, but oh-so-worth it!.
8. What color was your living room when you were growing up? Cream and navy.

9. What color was your bedroom when you were growing up? White with a rainbow motif.

10. What color are your sheets? Beige paisley.

11. What color was your favorite crayon as a child? Seafoam green.
12. What color is your car? Silver.

13. What color was your prom dress? Red (with sequins!) - No photo to torture with - Too bad it was a lot more The Price is Right than Valentino...
14. What's your favorite gemstone? If we're talking colored stones, then Rubies (mine and Avery's birthstone) - But nothing beats out a diamond!
(Bit of Trivia: Natural, "pigeon-blood" rubies are increasingly difficult to come by due to legal restrictions placed on export by ruby-rich countries such as Burma (now known as Myanmar.) This is one of the world's largest Burmese rubies - generally considered the finest. Did you know Victoria "Posh" Beckam owns one similar? Damn thing likely outweighs her - just sayin'...)

15. What is your favorite flower? Pale blue, green or white Hydrangeas.

16. What color makes you happiest? Yellow.

17. What color depresses you? Maroon.
Despite being an otherwise lovely room - this wall color is my idea of design hell.

18. What color calms you? Soft Celadon green.

19. What color makes you grind your teeth? Maroon (again!)

20. What color would you like to try, but are scared to? None!
However, despite thinking all these hot pink numbers are fabulous, I'd definitely have a lot of convincing to do to pull something similar off!

Hmmm...I'm not really seeing a consensus? I think my color personality, like my actual personality, is a bit mercurial...

I totally agree with you about maroon- what an awful color. And the Chanel lip glosses are my fav too.

Lindsey said...

Love this post! Totally remember the navy and cream living room and the red prom dress! Both rocked at the time! :)

You certainly don't just like one color!

ms. less is always more said...

I love this little quiz (your answers were fun to read!) I feel like my answers will all be "black" or "white"... hmmm. I'll have to delve deeper! :)

I keep forgetting to take this test, and yes maroon has to be one of the worst colors ever.

Averill said...

I'm with you on maroon -- it just seems like an older, dowdier version of either red or purple (commit to one, I say!).
