Does anyone have any colors they particularly like for spring?

I'm finding I am loving most any color and saving black for nighttime.

I really love , pale pink, pale blue, tourquise, any shade of green , lilac,
peach, pale yellow, red...all of them cheer me up for the warmer weather!

Plus, in the summer, they all look good with white pants, yes? Very Happy

My favorite summer colors are peach and coral.

In fact, I just bought a coral colored linen dress at ColdWater Creek. It's sleeveless and about ankle length so I can wear it with dress sandals and not bother with nylons.

Debra,
I go in phases when it comes to colors. Last year I bought a lot of peach colored stuff. Last week I went shopping and came home with several greens items and one brown top. I had not worn brown since I was in college (30 years ago!) and to my surprise my son told me that brown makes me look younger. I know that it makes my hair look lighter.

Maria, I think brown would look very pretty on you because of the contrast with your fair coloring. I love browns. But I love pinks too--I'm on a pink binge this year for some reason! And greens! Today I bought a long strand of beautiful aqua clearish beads-50% off!! Applause

Oooooooooo, I love aqua too! In fact our bedroom is done in shades of cream, peach and aqua. The wood frames on the bed, armoire and night stand are ivory. The carpeting is aqua and the half of the floor which is marble are different shades of ivory and beige. Our bathrooms are done in peach and aqua too. I love this combination.

I also love wearing brown because it goes good with auburn hair.

I guess I'd have to say that I like many colors too and don't limit myself to just one color group.

I really got into browns and beiges during the fall and winter and I love them But aqua is an amazing color..I feel like I'm on a beach somewhere when I where it..I think its a feel good color.

Ok..coral..well I love that color. Last week, I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing at work and a customer asked him to mix him some yellow paint. Not sure how I did it but I made him the most beautiful shade of coral paint I have ever seen (I think I used the wrong base). Thankfully I checked before I give it to him...then I told him it would make a lovely shade of lipstick for his wife..I am now not allowed to mix paint anymore... Angel Angel

Before I forget, congratulations on being a new moderator here!!!!!

Okay now, so HOW in the world did you get a shade of coral rather than yellow???

It's going up to 90 degrees here today so speaking of coral colors, I can now wear my new coral linen dress to dinner tonight. Dancing

Because as Carole calls me..I'm a dork! I wasn't paying attention so I used the wrong base (which I didn't know there was anyway). But I'm pretty good now..I can mix some wicked colors now and find sometimes when I don't feel like doing my job I like playing at the paint desk a lot. Its a hoot!

I love decorating and fooling around with color but I don't really get to do that.

Well Rosie,

I think you need to make the time. Today we have decided to paint Jen's dresser's and do something with her room. She's suddenly discovered she's a girl after all! Shhh

Maybe I'll get really ambitious and get out the sewing machine and make some new pillows or something. Its been so long .....
