ForeverSunShine says: 17 Months AgoThe color red is the color of energy, passion and action.
The color red is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. It exudes a strong and powerful masculine energy.
Red is energizing. It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action.
It signifies a pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination. It is also strong-willed and can give confidence to those who are shy or lacking in will power.
The color red can stimulate the appetite, often being used in restaurants for this purpose.

HATBOX12 says: 17 Months AgoRed is the least loved color of mine. It evokes in me a fear of being loud. rude and dominating. It represents a monster hiding in some corner of my being. I shy away from it and use it only when necessary, as in accents. Funny enough, I look my best in scarlet red, but often settle for muted tones of reds like moves and purples. I also like to pair up pink with orange.
