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?

    I got Warm and Vibrant which I agree expresses my personality, but I don't know if it really matches how my house is set up. Maybe it's time I start to do some redecorating! I also took a quiz that specifically helps you decide what kind of materials and hues will help for interior design. I ended up with leather, stone, and wood and matching color swathes to help me start the process. So between that quiz and this one I should have a good start!

    here's what i got, and i have to admit, i can kinda see it!
    You Are Classic & Sophisticated
    Your look is simple and clean, traditional and timeless. You are refined, and you expect your home to reflect the same level of style. Your ideal color palette consists of all shades of neutrals, from white to gray to taupe to many hues in between
