    It may sound like a perfectly practical idea to match the color of your sofa to your pet's fur. Wouldn't that seem like a great way to combat that irritating pet hair that stands out so much on your dark brown sofa? That would be a wonderful use of the awesome color apps available now. But as someone who really loves color, that's not what you did. Is it? You used the color app to make sure that your dog looks great on the new sofa, so you chose the perfect aqua fabric to offset your...MORE adorable dog's brown eyes. It's okay to admit it.

    Pink and lavender are lovely choices for decorating a little girl's room. They are not only happy and pretty, it can make decorating easier because there are so many accessories available in those colors. But, when you were little you wanted none of that off-the-shelf princess pink. Everyone that knows you knows that your princess was a mermaid, and your favorite color was aqua. Your mermaid princess had a sidekick turtle who was a perfect shade of green, so that was your accent color, of...MORE course. You're still going your own way with color, choosing what you love instead of following every trend, just as you did when you decorated your first room (at seven years old).

    Moving can be so stressful, but for someone that truly loves color it can be torture. That new house you chose has all the wrong colors or worse yet, it's all one big neutral beige paint color. Anyone who knows you well doesn't judge at all when you unpack the painting supplies first and take care of that "boring" front door before another box is unpacked.

    Peach, pink, or coral? You know the difference. You also wince when someone uses the term aqua and turquoise interchangeably. You're still unable to talk about the big taupe vs. beige scuffle in the home improvement paint aisle, (the memory is still too raw to relive.)

    If you're going to offer free advice to any fellow shopper that will listen, you'll want to be sure that you keep up on your color education. You could go on for hours about undertones, and how they "change everything!" but you've been asked by the security guard to take your purchases to the counter so the employees can go home for the night.

    Even for the most stylish color-lover, there have been color mishaps. Remember that time you decided that mustard was going to trend in 2009? Like a champ, you endured the mockery and disdain, and declared it a creative color excursion. Those that really love color know that there are no bad colors, just bad timing. Mustard is coming back eventually. Or perhaps not.
