I am partial to shades of teal, this one being on the darker side.  To me it is a calming color.  Funny how we have our favorites.  I wonder what causes that.  Why do we like a certain color over another?  Is it biological or cultural?  Thoughts?

Not sure, something to do with how it makes us feel I suppose?
Or maybe our mood? I love your color choice, John.

I think colors “speak” to us because from our very earliest years (perhaps even from an age for which we don’t have clear memories) we make connections—good or bad—with certain colors from various objects or experiences we have had. So, I guess I would have to say that color preference is a cultural phenomenon!
