Colors surround us everywhere we go. We choose certain colors to wear or paint our walls. We even have color preferences for cars, flowers, and jewelry. But is there any meaning behind them?
Naturally, we can’t help what we’re drawn to though some colors do speak volumes about the way we are without uttering a single sound.
