What's your Color Personality?

The recent issue of House Beautiful features a fabulous article on finding your color personality...I must say, I love mine...Blue...optimistic, empathetic, flexible, idealistic and tranquil- patient, a devoted mother...hopefully I posses these qualities...one of my favourite colors sure does...a shade of Blue...TURQUOISE...

Another favourite in my color personality is Orange...balanced mentally and physically...happy, loyal, takes each day as it comes...I'd like to say...that's me...
Knockout Orange from Sherwin Williams...

Love bunches of Orange roses in silver mint julep cups...

Now, my last favourite color is Brown...I don't know for sure what the experts say...I know I choose shades of brown because it's...comforting...warm and inviting...a soothing quality all its own...

I would have to say my colours on that test were all over the place! But yellow and orange still define my personality the best! (which blog is your BM post on?)

Hmm not sure about my color personality, but I must say there's really nothing comparable to Hermes orange!!
