What the Color of Your Living Room Says About You

You painted a room a certain hue because you were drawn to it, but do you know why? Color expert Kate Smith reveals the meanings behind your color choices.


Blue

"As tried and true blue, you bring a no-nonsense attitude to most endeavors, and your strong belief in the things you undertake is often the key to their success," Smith says. Blue was also the favorite color of designer Lee Ann Thornton's clients – the color launched the palette in this Old Greenwich, Connecticut, living room.

Light Green

"Celadon indicates that you are a good listener, have genuine compassion, and allow others to express their hopes and fears," Smith says. In this Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, dining room with light green accents, designer Laura Church Wilmerding added oomph with Osborne & Little's Jangala Rose wallpaper. Dining room chairs from Classic Imported Design look ethereal in Nina Campbell's Deauville.

Pink

If you're drawn to bright pink, you're "maybe a bit tempestuous, someone who seeks out new experiences and surroundings," Smith says. "Easily bored by the mundane, they live life with a willingness to put themselves 'out there.'" Pink adds a big punch in this Los Angeles, California, room designed by Windsor Smith, the walls are painted are painted Benjamin Moore's Pink Begonia, with Decorators White on the trim.

Brown

If you love rich browns in your decor, you "take your obligations seriously, are industrious, and value the respect of those close to you," Smith says. Chocolaty brown grass cloth — Sisal in Sable from Clarence House — adds intimacy in the dining room of an Old Greenwich, Connecticut, house designed by Lee Ann Thornton.

Black

Dare to go with dramatic black? You're "elegant, comfortable with formality, complex, a bit mysterious," Smith says. "Precise in your thinking you quickly understand concepts, connect ideas, and envision ways to make things happen." In a Houston house with Georgian bones and siren allure, the drama begins in a foyer swathed in Phillip Jeffries's Lacquered Walls in Eyeliner — a long-lasting vinyl that mimics lacquer and "fools everyone," designer Rob Southern says.

Bright Green

Bright green lovers are "someone who exudes positive energy and a 'we can make it happen' philosophy," Smith says. "With a discerning sensibility and an innate desire to put others at ease, this person is a natural when it comes to social endeavors." Designer Allison Paladino glazed the Palm Beach sunroom walls bright green to capture the light and painted the woodwork white to calm it down.
