• Tell Your Friends

What’s your color personality? I found out mine by taking the Color Personality Quiz at HGTV.com (the link to the quiz is on the top right of the Find Your Color page). I was totally surprised by how I scored. You must take it, and let me know your results. Who knows — we might be color buddies! Before taking the quiz, I was sure that my effervescent and sarcastic personality would elicit a dramatic or vibrant color palette…


My bubbly side :: My serene side

…but instead, I got: You are natural and serene. (Wait, what?!) Reading on it said: You are drawn to colors derived directly from nature. You appreciate the beauty of the natural world and the peace it provides. Your ideal color palette consists of green, blue and brown. Wow … that’s totally true. I do appreciate nature; I love going hiking in the mountains. Then, I talked about the quiz with my colleagues here at HGTV, they were all saying I have a calm and nurturing personality and reminded me I wear outfits with subtle colors just as often as loud, hot hues. (But can I confess? I really wanted to be a red. Or purple.)

Now it’s your turn. Discover the color palette that best fits with your personality and then dive straight into pictures of color-inspired room ideas. After that, be sure to come back here and share with us your thoughts on your color personality assessment. Was your palette a total match with your personality or did you get something totally unexpected?

    My color personality was "Warm and Vibrant" — since I decorate with a lot of red and orange, I guess this makes sense!

    That was mine, too!

    Thought you might want to know: I took the quiz but couldn't see my results. I also had trouble expanding the pictures. Same problem in two browsers.

    Kayla, I got "Natural and Serene" too. I was pretty confident that would be my result though. Blue, green and brown are my interior color palette of choice!

    Just for fun I took the quiz again and chose everything that was my least favorite. I ended up with a "Passionate and Regal" color personality. Now I know what colors to avoid — purple, black, and metallics, which is pretty much right on the money!

    I got classic and sophisticated! My palette consists of "all shades of neutrals, from white to gray to taupe to many hues in between." Interesting because I've been thinking of painting some accent walls with bright pops of color – we'll see…..
