On liking colours

I had a very interesting conversation the other day where one topic flowed into the next until we arrived at the following question(s):

Do I have to like one colour more than other colours? Why does it matter what colour something is? Does the colour make any difference in the way things work?

It was like the furthest you can get to racism/colourism except this wasn’t about people, but about things. I am all for ignoring/looking past people’s colour, because the person inside their skin is so much more important than the ‘packaging’, but I feel there’s nothing wrong with choosing a purple T-shirt over a yellow one, purely based on colour.. even if the T-shirts function exactly the same way.

Interesting concept though.. What do you people think?

  1. I love colour -in my clothing and in my garden, in my two cushions that glow with poppies, in the throw rug I recently knitted flaunting green, orange and cream.
    I am more partial to a few colours that others perhaps, my summer wardrobe this year has had a lot of red in it but I have had outfits in the past which were favourites, blue and green ones particularly come to mind. And many ears ago I made myself a frock with a gold and black pattern, which sounds garish but was quite lovely.
    Apart.from clothing I do not like interiors of homes that are all muted “nothing”colours, although they look fine and I understand the reasons why people decorate like that, and of course they may not like my throw rug etc!
    But what a dreary world it would be without colour! Can you imagine everything just white, or green, or dark brown, or any one singular colour? Wat a lot we would lose! I’m or celebrating colour in all ways!
