When I think of the word “lemon yellow,” I think of the word “happy.” It’s a very cheerful color. Synonymous with the sun. We’re all happier on a sunny day. I think of lemon yellow as a summer color, although by taking very extra care, it could be an early fall color. Now that Hurricane Hermione is gone, it feels like fall is here, though I can still feel some of the summer heat.

Color Therapy: Lavender

I tried to do good research. Really, I did. It just appears that the color, Lavender, is almost a rather boring color, though beautiful. Its history seems be as soothing as its namesake flower. It does not seem to have played in any major part in the trading industry, like the indigo did, and it wasn’t a lethal color like emerald once was. Basically, it’s just part of the purple family, which has been a color choice for royalties. And that was mainly because back in the day only royalties could afford the purple dye, which was made from snails.

Color Therapy: Emerald

In honor of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to talk about Emerald. Green is my second favorite color, as long as it’s not lime. I’m actually not a huge fan of green with a yellow undertone to it. But I love emerald, kelly green, pine green, mint green, and well, I could on. But, I won’t. Read on to see what Emerald does to my imagination.

Antique Emerald and Diamond Ring. A rich luscious green and crystalline old mine square emerald-cut emerald, weighing 1.35 carats, shines shoulder-to-shoulder with a pair of sparkling old mine-cut diamonds, weighing .35 carat each (.70 carats total), in this truly superb and stunning late-nineteenth/early-twentieth century three-stone ring elegantly rendered in 14K yellow gold.

Emeralds are the birthstones for May.

Color Therapy: Indigo

Show me something blue and I’m falling head over heels before you can even say “So beautiful!” Indigo is such a lovely word for blue. I even love the way it’s pronounced and the feelings and images it may conjure. When I hear the word indigo, I think of the dyes made for textiles and dark beautiful rooms.
