Aquamarine, teal, turquoise, blue-green, greenish blue, sea-green.
I have a thesaurus and I know how to use it.
So, aquamarine. Why on earth would someone be compelled to write a blog post about a color? How much can be said about a color?
We’re both about to find out. You see, turquoise or whatever you want to call it happens to be my favorite color.
I don’t know how long this has been my favorite color, but I’ve never been a pink kind of girl. That’s my sister’s territory. I’ve always leaned towards blues. Heck, even when I was 5, we went to the carpet store to pick out new carpeting for our rooms. I picked a rug that had all the colors that you would see in a peacock feather. It even had the same shiny quality to it.
Never let a 5 year old pick out carpeting that will be installed in your house.
Over the years, I continued to pick out blues and greens as my favorite colors. I also subscribed to the theory that because I’m a redhead, I must only wear cool blues and greens lest anything else clash with my hair. I applied that theory to a nearly everything else around me.
I also realized, sometime during early adulthood, that a pale aqua similar to beach glass was the most soothing color in the world to me. It still is. That’s probably why, in my early years of blogging, I made this button:
Because like the color, blogging is soothing to me.
You’ll be surprised to find that I don’t exactly have much aqua in my house. Mister isn’t a fan of the color. Not sure why, because it’s a very pretty color. The guest bath has aqua in it. It’s also the bath that I use all the time since I don’t like showering in the phone booth that the builder thought was a good idea in the spacious master bath. So I aspired to make the not-so-spacious guest bath have a spa-like feel to it, with soothing colors and all the stuff I need to have to make myself pretty. I also was able to get my hands on the guest room, using the bedding I’ve used since I first moved here to Vegas. I don’t have a picture of the guest room, but you can see the bedding in this picture of my unmade bed in the apartment I was living in when I met Mister:
Very soothing. You’ll notice that I changed the background color of my blog to something that suits me more. Something like aqua. :-)
What is your favorite color? How prominent is it in your wardrobe and home?
