BGIV Cool Hues 4 U

I am a self admitted color freak. I love every color of the rainbow, and I love seeing all of the color spectrum in one wallpaper. But--

There is something special about the cool colors of the rainbow. They are restful and soothing to the eye. I love the way that my computer icons contrast with these colors.

Wallpapers in color combinations of blue, purple, violet, green, and indigo are welcome. Walls with an emphasis on just one of these colors are also fine. Think purple cows, blue cars, violet flowers, green leaves, etc. Abstracts in shades of a single cool color are good also.

Please try to keep warm colors, such as bright red, orange and yellow out of what you submit, unless they are a minor part of the wallpaper design.

I hope you enjoy this group. Just about anyone who uploads wallpapers from the web or makes homemades will have at least some walls that will fit into it. If you see any cool hued walls that you like on DN, tell the designer to come on in and be way cool with this group!

What is your Favorite Color?

CollieSmile says: 17 Months Ago
I guess I'll start, since I'm the one who asked...lol

I love every color of the rainbow, especially when they are all together. That is why a lot of my own walls don't fit into this particular group!

My favorite color was green for many years. Now I am more partial to a warm blue. By warm blue, I mean aquamarine, I guess, but actually, I think the shade that I like has a little less green in it than aquamarine does.

I just peeked through my wallpapers. Believe it or not, I don't have a good example of my favorite color in any of them! I'll have to do something about that soon. I think that is probably true because when I make a wallpaper, I am very focused on working with color combinations, rather than on a single hue.

Enough about my favorite(s). I would love to know what yours are! This question has fascinated me for a long time. I love knowing what people's favorites are! :D

Blue is my favourite colour.
It symbolises the start of everything to me .... the beginning of life, love, mystery, spiritual awakeness, happiness and fulfilment. I love the colour which makes me want more....

Did you know that psychologists believe colour brings emotions into our lives? And a person's favourite colour says a lot about them and who they really are. For most of us, there is one colour in particular that really speaks to us. Not to say that you can't love and have strong emotions for multiple colours. Though, there's always that one colour that really sticks with you. That specific colour says a lot about you. So I goggled blue and this is what I came up with ...

Blue is the colour of calm and tranquillity. People who love blue tend to feel a need for harmony in their lives. Lovers of blue are typically trustworthy, reliable and have a desire to find inspiration from different things. Blue lovers are often great friends and can be sensitive....
So it kinda describes me to a T .... mmmm ... creepy but true.

Yes Elaine, you are a stickybeak just like me ... LOL This is one way to find out more about our friends :)

purple is my favorite colour, ive been fascinated by it since i was a very young child. an aunt of mine had a purple lamp in her drawing room, which when switched on shone a purple glow across the walls and floor and i would sit by it mesmerized for hours. and ive found ive been drawn to anything purple ever since.

the colour purple-violet is said to be the colour of good judgement of spiritual fulfillment, and if you surround yourself with it, you will have peace of mind.

purple is the comination of red and blue which are warmest and coolest of colours, purple is believed to be the ideal colour.

it symbolizes magic and mystery and is the colour of purpose and is associated with imagination and inspiration.

if you add a little purple to your life it will re-balance your life, remove obstacles and energize from depression.

it is also associated with the crown chakra - this links individual and universal together.

i just know that when i have anything round me thats purple, or see anything purple, it makes me feel good, mischievous and alive.

CollieSmile says: 17 Months Ago
I am willing to explain why I liked green as a child and why I switched over to liking a warm blue now. But first I have to catch up on some non DN emails. :) Don't worry, green and warm blue are on my "Do List." :D

(Jon, I am so glad that you like the purple swirl wallpaper. :D)
