I’m naturally drawn to color and have always preferred bright and bold to neutral and safe.  I get so excited about the prospect of spring and summer, and explosions of color.  It’s a source of ambivalence when designing.  I always reach for the bright coral, cobalt blue, turquoise, or chartreuse, when I should be going for the pewter, bronze, gunmetal, and black.  Most people just don’t wear color, and I find that to be quite sad.
