Err'body needs a colour thesaurus

I felt like I needed my Monday to start with a burst of colour. I mean, there are worse ways to start the week right?

So writer Ingrid Sundberg took it upon herself to help out anyone that was feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the fawns, oysters, cantaloupes and periwinkles of the colour world, by putting together a fun infographic showing them all off.

I’ve learned that we all have different associations with color words,” Sundberg told Bored Panda. “For example the color sapphire is a light blue to me (since that’s the color of the sapphire on my engagement ring), but a sapphire can also be a very dark blue. I doubt there can be an ‘official color guide,’ as color is so subjective.

There was no official color guide. This was something I made for myself based on color words I liked and the colors the words evoked for me.

Fun right? Now you go off and have a bright and colourful day.
