Color Sense Game….

swatch.jpgWhile this on-line quiz doesn’t necessarily make YOU more sensible about color…It is an somewhat unusual  approach to making people feel more confident about making color decisions when choosing paint colors. There is an interesting press release, at The Earth Times  about Porter Paint’s new color tools on their web site. The Voice of Color, quiz asks you to answer seven questions using sliders and drop &  drag preferences rankings and then suggests two color palettes that you might enjoy. They also recommend that you take the quiz often” as moods and preferences change”.

The questions include: your eye color, fantasy vacation, favorite smell and tastes (selected from a range of food pictures). But, yikers! “Morning Rose”  (mid-valued desaturated pink, off olive green and cream) aka something out of a Victorian Bed and Breakfast= I best take this quiz again in the light of day.

It is always interesting  to consider different approaches  to making color decisions. Everyone as their own innate color sense and preferences .When taking a quiz such as this, the discovery of finding the colors “lovely” or “discordant is a lesson in itself.

    I came out “Al Fresco” and after looking at the pallettes for that group, I think it IS the best match for me, and ALSO looks like good inspiration for color schemes for my Library — at least *I* would enjoy them! Cool!

    I’m with you Sherry – Al fresco – but the tapestry and mosaic palette suits me too…will take the test again on another day and see what happens:)
