What is your color palette?

Color Me Beautiful’s Looking Your Best
Spillane and Sherlock
1995

Another color book to make you pretty. We have featured these types of books before: color for your life, color for men, colors for your home, etc. I remember when this was a big deal. This topic was on all the talk shows and I think there were even some Avon like parties where one could get their colors done. I don’t know if it is still as big a deal as was back in the late 1980s/1990s.

Color My Home

Your Colors At Home
Decorating with Your Seasonal Colors
Smith and Gilbert
1985

In the 1980s, having your colors done, was quite the thing. I remember quite a few books and tv talk show segments devoted to figuring out color schemes worked for your skin tones. People were either a Summer, Winter, Fall, or Spring. I remember trying to figure this out for myself and coming up with nothing. I still don’t really understand how this works.
