What are your favorite colors?
What colors do you dislike?

(I originally wrote this for my SP11 questionnaire. But the answers haven't changed since then, so here they are!)

I love muted earthy colors--browns, greens, blues, plums, grays. I also like black, robin’s egg blue, and red. I think it’s fair to say that half of my wardrobe is some shade of brown.

Pastels have never thrilled me. And white . . . well, I have no objection to it as a color, but I never manage to keep it pristine (even when following Martha Stewart’s directions!), so I’ve sort of given up on it.

this is a difficult question for me. I really enjoy all colors in limited amounts or in the right combination...but greens are my favorite, especially mixed with off-white or nuetrals. I really don't like orange very much at all but being a VaTech grad I still wear orange and maroon on occasion.

This is fun! I like all colors but mauve (but I can put up with it with other colors). Greens, oranges, and aquas are my favorites. I don't tend to be wild about primary colors or pastels..........but again, even like those when combined with others).

I like green best - sage green, olive green, forest green. I also like purples, grays and black.

I hate teal!

Well, I don't think it's really a question of me not liking colors, because I pretty much like ALL of them, except for teal. I hate teal. Teal should be obliterated from all human existence. Really, it's more like what colors don't like me! For instance, I love yellow and orange, but they look hideous on me. However, I will admit that I'm not a huge fan of pastels. I guess I like heathered, natural colors the best. I'm fond of plums, sagey greens, blues, gray, terracotta, coral, browns and mocha. I like red, too.

I, too, like most colors, though I least like pastels. I probably like autumn colors the most (sage and olive green, medium brown, burnt orange, not-too-bright yellow/gold. I also like teal, dusty pink, red, dusty light blue. I like purples, but they don't like me (just like raw onions)!
