Has Your Color Taste Evolved?

Has Your Color Taste Evolved?

From the time I was a little girl, I've always been a person who loved blue. Navy, cornflower, periwinkle, azure, sky- no matter how light or dark, my favorite clothes, bedding, Trapper Keepers, etc. were always blue. When I moved into my first apartment, my first decorating decision was to paint my bedroom a bright and beautiful blue. Recently though, I have begun to realize that my color taste is changing.

While I still love blue, I have noticed over the last couple of years that I'm being drawn to warmer and warmer hues. Growing up as a redhead, I always steered clear of pinks, reds and oranges (though yellow was always my second favorite color). Though pink and red finally wormed their way into my wardrobe in college, it wasn't until I started collecting Persian carpets that those colors made their way into my home decor. In the last few months, I've found myself pulled toward orange pops both in my closet and in my home.

I don't think I'll ever stop loving every shade of blue, but my growing affinity for other hues has added a new dimension to my home decor, and broadened my color horizons. Have others of you found your color taste evolving over time? If so, did you add new colors to your list of must-haves, or did you come to dislike a color that was once a favorite?
