Typically the brighter and bolder the colours the more outgoing you are – keep to muted tones and you're probably a little shy. It used to be said that anyone using black was depressed and although this may be true for some for others it's a way of showing they have their finger on the pulse of the latest design colour trends. So what does you're home say about you?
