Pick the Perfect Palette

Almost every element of our sensory environment can be assigned a colour. Whether consciously or on a subconscious level, we project colours onto the people we like and dislike and have colour associations with situations we'd rather forget or would like to revisit. It not only plays a big part in defining our self image, but our underlying moods, hopes, fears, likes and dislikes are often assigned colours of their own too.

Some colours we are strongly drawn to; others we consider feminine or masculine, lively or subdued. These associations are a complex mix of personal association and preferences. They also have deep cultural roots and are swayed by trends.
