Color Philosophy In life

Updated on January 27, 2010

This world is full with color. Color in life can give us a new spirit to remain diligent in working, creative, never gice up and always smile. As we know color is used for drawing, painting, design. In the world of design, color has always been the main priority in determining the design concept, not many people who rarely wrong in determining the color of the design for it. Regardless of many colors out there. We must have favorite color. Why I said so, because each person has different personality, preferences and desires. Maybe I like the blue color, but my sister liked the pink or red. There was a strong influence inside us, in determining the favorite color.

From here I want to share the meanings of a color in life.  I hope you enjoy reading this hub. And give new spirit based your favorite color.


The white color symbolizes purity, it is often used in wedding ceremonies, as well as accuracy, innocence, cleanliness. This color widely used in hospitals as a sign of sterile.


Red signifies passion, intensity, and desire to always move forward. Also symbolizes warmth, love, desire, power, and energy. In oriental cultures, red is preferred because it has a meaning happy.


Yellow is a part of warm color which brings joy to the users. However, this yellow color also symbolizes optimism, hope, and represent  the deep philosophy


Green is a part of cold color and bring freshness to the eyes. Green also symbolizes freshness, health, naturalness, and renewal.

      i usually like rich, vibrant colors like cobalt blue or magenta, although i do love fresh clean colors like lime green. i also wear a lot of chocolate brown in the cooler months and choose pinks, whites and golds in the hot months. for my surroundings i like subdued organic colors like wheat, etc.

      i wonder what all this means... ;)

      nice hub, prasetio - i really enjoyed it!

      For screation , thanks for share your thought about the influence the color in your life. I appreciate that.

      The human eye senses color mainly through three primary colors – red, green, and blue. That is why in television signals these three colors are used for producing the color pictures. The blue component of the scattered light is almost ten times stronger than the red. Even though the violet and indigo are scattered more than blue the eye senses mainly blue. Therefore when we look at the sky away from the sun the sky appears blue.
