Your Growing Up Color…


I grew up with a blue and green bedroom and my sister’s was pink and green. We both had the very same same floral wallpaper and bedding in two different colors. At Christmas, if I opened something pink, I knew it was for her and vice versa.

Sophia, my adorable and oh so sweet niece, started out with pink and green and is ready to go for a peacock blue with green accents – funny how history repeats itself… I can’t wait to see it finished.

When I moved away from home, I stayed away from blue, and went with something all together new - lavender for a while, followed by variations in crème. I’ve loved them all, but lately it seems I’m reverting back to childhood with blue - ice blue and this time gray.

This started me thinking….do you still like or would you pass on the color you had in your room growing up? You know my answer already…

I grew up with blue. I still lean towards cooler colors...albeit, I do love a shot of pink too. But, yeah, now that I think of it, I do revert to my original color scheme often. Interesting.

Yellow was the color of the room I shared with my three sisters. Although I now lean towards blues and all tones of white, I realize that I always incorporate yellow in there somehow. I think you stumbled upon something!

I had blue as a child and I still love it. It was a sky blue then and now it is different shades of blue and white. I use accents of yellow or green, but blue just makes me happy.

I guess I'm the exception to the rule - I had a bright peach room growing up and NEVER use that color at home. I've been a designer for 5 years and just now I'm considering a palette with a very pale peach!

I think colors get inside your brain somehow, and are bound to reappear - even in accent pops of color.

BTW I saw a watercolor I fell in LOVE with in a bright pink the other day. What a wonderful pop that would be. I cannot stop thinking about it. That's bad.
