- Wedding: October 2013
Yup! Plus, FI is colorblind, so any conversation having to do with colors is like that. :-p
My fiance is terrible with colors. When he was living on his own, he ordered a couch and loveseat from a local furniture store. He told me that when he went to pick them out, he’d chosen a “light green” color. I was at his apartment when the furniture was delivered, and the couch and loveseat were dark brown! I asked him if there was a mistake, but after a couple of minutes of looking really confused, he said, “No … I guess they just looked different under the store lights.”
Now we’re both glad they ended up being dark brown (they just look a lot better with the rest of the stuff we combined), but I still tease him about it. Haha.
I’ve been asking him to help me with a color palette, but it’s hilarious when we look at the options. There’s no way he’d ever know the difference between two shades of purple or anything similar.
Yeah, no. My fiance knows colors better than I do. It’s a little sad, actually.
Our wedding colors were a red, aubergine, and various metallics for accents. My then-fiance went to the tux shop with his groomsmen to pick out the tuxes, and when he came back, he told me they had selected red vests and ties.
When we stopped back in to get a fabric swatch later, I found that what he describes as red is actually bubblegum pink. PINK. Needless to say, I guided him to some actual red swatches to pick again.
Mine knows his colors since he’s an interior designer. Sometimes it drives me a little crazy because I want to add new colors to his (now our) house, and he tells me it won’t work for whatever reason. Annoying!
I didn’t vote because we’re both in tune with colours. I am very artistic (almost went into interior design) and he has a Fine Arts degree. No problem with knowing what’s what…just on agreeing on same ones! lol
SO is super into warhammer which is a table top game that requires you to assemble and paint miniature warriors. SO definitely knows his colors and shades, unfortunately all the names he uses are things like bonecrusher red, chaos blue, bleached bone ect they usually have some gory conotation. At least he understands me when I talk about colors. My father can’t tell the difference between pink and purple and the best man is actually red green colorblind. His being colorblind has lead to some hilarious stories though. He has a particularly good one about how boring the cubicles at work were and how he mentioned the dullness to a coworker only to find out that the cubicles had a red and green striped pattern to them that he couldn’t see. He felt super gypped that the cubiles were sooo much more boring to him than everyone else.
Mine see the colors of the rainbow and that’s it! lol Anything else has to be explained. 🙂
My husband doesn’t usually describe colours beyond “Blue” or “Light/Dark Blue”. But, he seems to understand there is infact a difference between “Blue” and “Teal” or “Baby Blue” ect, but he doesn’t refer to them like that himself.
My FH was raised by a brigade of very crafty women, so he’s just as on board with everything as I am (and actually cares more about the decor haha, I’m pretty apathetic). He came to the paint shop to help figure out colors – I expected him to just pass and veto things, but he ended up scurrying around the shop, finding the *perfect* green and pointing out little discrepancies that I never would have noticed.
He also helped decide on the color names we’d use. “Well sage is too dull, and lime is too bright. Definitely not forest green, more saturation than celery.” Haha! He’s very handy. 🙂
