The meaning of color in the paint section

glidden colorsThe emotional side of color just hit the Gidden paint company and the meanings of colors are now in the paint section. These are new paint chips I found in the paint section and I quickly grabbed them all. Of course the information on the back relates more to how to coordinate the paint color with your home, but there is some information on how it relates with mood and personality.

I’m a firm believer in expression through color because they do have emotional meaning and healing qualities. You can use specific colors to help add emotional meaning to your art. If you’re working on something internal, you can use the colors that will help empower you.

BODY (1 of 1)Color healing is in the same realm as energy healing. Colors in a prism vibrate differently so they help us in different ways. Here is a list of colors and simple explanations of what they mean.

Red symbolizes: Action, Confidence, Courage, and Vitality. It is stimulating and can remove fear along with any reluctance to move forward.
Pink symbolizes: Love, Beauty
Brown symbolizes: Earth, Order, Convention, Moderation, and Loyal
Orange symbolizes: Vitality with endurance, brave, and sociable. It’s profound meaning is that all experiences in our lives have nutrients that we need.

  1. Hello! I’m really enjoying your blog so I nominated you for the Liebster award.

    This is an award for new bloggers with less than 200 followers.
    This a great way to do some networking. The Liebster award nominees are chosen by fellow bloggers. Each blogger that accepts chooses 11 other blogs to nominate, and so on, so it helps those of us with few followers get out there and be seen.

    If you choose to accept the nomination, there are a few things for you to complete and post on your site. Take a look at the requirements, you can see them at the link to my Liebster award post, then see what you think.

    After you select your nominees, feel free to cut and paste parts of this message in order to make your own version. That is what I did.

    You are not obligated to participate, but it would be very beneficial for you to do so.

    The details and questions are in my post at
