10 Shades of Color & the Personality Types Behind Them

Almost everyone has a favorite color, or if not a specific favorite there is at least a color choice out there that draws your attention more than others. Like that moment when you see a fancy automobile, or a new shiny appliance in your favorite color and think, "That color is SO me."

Your favorite color is said to define a big part of who you are, and can offer an inside look into your own personality and behavioral traits. Each shade of the rainbow triggers a certain psychological response, and can change not only your mood but the mood of others around you. That being said, the color you choose to decorate your home or kitchen will also say a lot about you and the environment of your household. Whether or not you believe in the psychology behind your color choice, theres no denying that the shades you cover your home in can set the tone or mood of your surroundings.

When a color speaks to you, it speaks to you, and will most likely become the default shade you pick when faced with a color selection. Ever wonder what that color says about you and your own unique personality? With over 200 custom colors in our Big Chill appliance line, we are confident we offer the color that speaks directly to your individuality and will reflect the happiness you seek to bring into your home.
