There are a lot of different elements that can inspire a person. I’m usually inspired by nature or something special that catches my eye in the streets. For me it’s easy to get inspired because I have a visual memory. Colors are also a very important factor.
I’m not very good when it comes to combining colors and usually need help with that. I know what I like when I see it but I just can’t put the pieces together myself when it comes to interior decorating. I know I’m not the only one with this problem, which is why I’m happy that there are sites like MyColortopia.com that can help in such cases. It’s a place where people who are easily overwhelmed by interior design decisions and painting can get guidance, advice and inspiration. It is the perfect place for someone like me to get me started on a project.
Starting a project is the hardest part. I usually have a color I really like in mind, like green. It’s a fresh color, a color that we usually find in nature, a symbol of exuberance and rebirth. I’ve also noticed that I have a tendency to use tones of green in everything I do.
Well, that’s enough about me. Now it’s time for you to explore your color preferences, and find out how they relate to your everyday life. You’ll notice that colors play a more important role in your life than you might think. Try taking this quiz My Life, My Colors. Who knows, you might find out things that you didn’t know about your own preferences. Colors are one of the most basic things out there that it’s hard even to describe them. I wouldn’t want to know what it would be like to live in a colorless world.
