Amazing creativity of our Nature

Valentine's Day and Colours

Colours propel their presence in all locales and objects that we encounter in our day-to-day activities. Colours also specify certain moods and qualities. Take a glimpse at the significance of colours and use them appropriately in your Valentine's Day attire and gifts.

Red is the colour of energy, liveliness, love and sexual passion. That is why red roses, red attires and gifts wrapped in red play a dominant role on Valentine's Day. Red communicates your passion towards your beloved or towards love itself. Maroon and brick red symbolize fun and love.

Pink is an expression of freshness, love, affection, understanding and sweetness. Pink can be the ideal choice for Valentine's Day and will subtly help bring to surface the love for your partner. It can also add more love into your lives.

Orange is the colour of energy, creativity and practicality. It also denotes happiness and can pep up your moods when your spirits are low.

Peach can bring about care, sweetness and serenity in your love. A peach dress or a shirt can look good on both men and women on Valentine's Day.

Yellow signifies inspiration, spontaneity, communication and novelty. This colour's liveliness and vitality encourage conversation. So communicate your feelings for your loved one near a soft yellow flamed candle. A Yellow dress for a woman will do well on Valentine's Day.

Light blue symbolizes creativity, perceptivity and sensitivity. It also ushers a peaceful and a calm scenario and so is effective to smoothen or balance your emotions. Freshness is one of its properties and is suggested if you prefer a more steady and paced approach to your feelings.

Dark blue signifies intelligence, self-reliance and deep feelings. A combination of blue and green can promote self-expression. Dark blue can be an ideal colour for a man for Valentine's Day outfit.

Green suggests humanism, benevolence, observance and caution. Though a bit cautious in every approach in life and relationships, it induces understanding which is one of the most important requirements in one's relationship. Dark green shirt for a man and lighter shades of green for women's outfit will make good Valentine's Day attires.

Purple denotes intuition. Intuitions play a major role in romance. This in turn can induce passion. Grapes are always oriented with love and wine is always a chosen gift for the loved one during Valentine's Day. Purple is purely feminine and a light purple or a mauve outfit for a woman will generate cuteness on Valentine's Day.

White is a colour of purity, optimism and innocence. It consists of all the colours in the spectrum. White roses given to your beloved can mean ' You are celestial' or 'our love is pure'. They can be employed denoting the impeccable love that has stood the test of time and trials.

Both men and women can choose a white outfit for the Valentine's Day.

Grey denotes good judgment capabilities and also non-involvement. So it may not be the right colour to be chosen for Valentine's Day dress or a setting. Though a beautiful shade on its own, it does not bring in the freshness desired for Valentine's Day when worn by a woman. However a grey outfit for man can look fine.

Brown and Black
Black and Brown can both be incorporated in a man's Valentine's Day attire individually. Black denotes independence, authority and boldness while brown stands for honesty and a down to earth attitude towards life. Women can opt for more feminine and pastel shades for Valentine's Day.

So choose your outfits and gifts with the appropriate colours on this Valentine's Day
