Color can be hard. It’s harder when we think about it too much (which we do, a lot). Instead of judging, how about just enjoy these 10 selections of rich and yummy color fields, courtesy of MentalFloss. Which speak to you and why?

13-1015-amaranthine
Amaranth. The pop of perennial in the garden. The imaginary flower that never fades.

Coquelicot. This is our color. Another name for poppy.
13-1015-falu
Falu. Or barn-red. Feels rich and powerful to me.
13-1015-fulvous
Fulvous. (Yes, it’s a real color name.) A variation on buff, beige or butterscotch. Yummy!
13-1015-glaucous
Glaucous. It’s not just a winning Words With Friends score. A dull-grey blue, or the powdery grey bloom on grapes.

Xanadu. Drab or dramatic? For rich backgrounds and staid undertones.
