Do you remember that trend where black was the latest colour?
- Black roses (mind blowing)
- Black clothing
- “I’ll stop wearing black when a darker shade of black comes out.”
- Black heart and souls
It was all pretty amusing but I just couldn’t relate. I’ve always loved colour. All the different shades and the pop of life it gave everything. In one of my post, named “Dark,” it mentions how much I hate the darkness and it’s true. I could never pain my walls black because:
- It’s creepy
- It makes your room appear smaller
- And it’s just…so…dark
You’re probably wondering what colour my room really is—or not—but I’m not willing to say. It’s far too embarrassing. In my defence, I just haven’t had the time to redecorate.
I love wearing bright, vibrant colours but I’d hate to attract attention, so I stick to neutral or lighter shades of colour.
When I’m shopping for shoes or purses, or something for everyday use, I usually hunt for neutral colours because if I buy a blue purse, what are the chances I’ll be able to use them all the time compared to a cream coloured bag.
I mentioned black flowers earlier and let me tell you, when I first saw a picture surface on Instagram, I was blown away. Black flowers! Those exist! But so do flowers that last a year, so why exactly was I surprise.
Did you just wipe your eyes? No, no, you read right. There are flowers that last a year! Of course, it’s expected to be filled with chemical, making it artificial, but it’s still pretty amazing.
There’s something about the wide range of colours that fill me with happiness. Like, on a bright summer morning, the yellow sun and the blue sky fill me with happiness. Or on a winter morning, after a night of fallen snow, the pure whiteness gives me joy—although some would argue white isn’t a colour.
Black is just so…gloomy. And grey reminds me of a storm, although I adore storms. There’s just something so calming about it. And the thunder…sorry, that’s another topic.
Not to mention, colour is capturing. I don’t know about you but if I had to choose between a picture drawn in black compared to one drawn in colour, I’d be more focused on the coloured one. Maybe that’s why I’m appalled by black and white movies.
But you know what they say, “Don’t knock it till you try it.”
QOTD: Does it bother you how I spelt colour? How do you spell it: colour or color?
