The colors you use to decorate your apartment can actually say a lot about you. A room's hue can have a huge effect on your mood, so matching your walls to your personality is a must. Here's what your decoration plans say about your color personality:
Red comes with a lot of baggage, meaning-wise. It's a color with many interpretations, and its reputation spans from romance to rage. The common theme throughout all of red's meanings, however, is passion. This is a color choice that shows you're willing to let your emotions go full throttle. Your feels run hot and right on the surface, which means you're able to make decisions quickly.
Orange is generally associated with being social and adventurous. Since it's such a strong color, many people tend to shy away from it when decorating. Those who do use orange in their decor are typically bold and willing to go against convention. These intrepid decorators take pride in their style, and are probably way ahead of the curve when it comes to trends.
Sunflowers, lemonade, emoticons – all of the happiest things in life are yellow. That's why it comes as no surprise that it's associated with joy and excitement. If your apartment is decked out in this sunny shade, the odds are good you're an optimistic person who thoroughly enjoys that half-full glass.
People who like to have lots of blue throughout their place are probably calm and collected. Blue has a relaxing effect and is associated with tranquility. This means people who surround themselves in this serene shade are probably less stressed than the rest of us.
If you're a big fan of green, you're probably needy. I don't mean that in a bad way – there's nothing wrong with knowing what you want and being willing to demand it. People who love the color green are usually loyal and frank, and are likely to have strong social ties. The only disadvantage of this color personality is that green lovers tend to be pretty concerned with what other people think of them.
Purple is an interesting color, and it tends to attract interesting people. Compared to most colors, this shade is pretty rare in nature and has been commonly associated with royalty and nobility in the past. Today, however, it's generally most liked by creative types and those drawn to mysticism.
Organized. Neat. Pristine. You really have to have these characteristics if you like the color white. It's a big commitment, decoration-wise: White gets dirty quickly, so those who use it to on their walls and furniture have to be willing to stay on top of cleaning. Apart from their fastidious nature, people who enjoy a blank slate like to give off the message that they're upfront and easy to read – of course, whether or not that's actually the case is a different matter entirely.
Decorating in shades of brown is, in many ways, the ultimate act of practicality. People who use brown are usually laid-back, and willing to roll with the punches. If you like brown, you're probably more likely to spend a lot of time working on a decision than you are to make one impulsively. However, you're also a lot better at handling the situation if things don't go your way.
People who love black are usually classy and sophisticated, with a strong appreciation for the power of simplicity. If your apartment is decorated with plenty of black, you're probably a no-nonsense realist who prefers to be totally in control of your situation. Although you may be a bit of a pessimist, you view pessimism as the smartest way to look at potentially disappointing situations. You're rarely caught off-guard.
