The Colors of Love – by Olivia Henderson

Hi Wrapunzel Ladies!

I had a little time on my hands – and I began to think about the Colors of Love!

Of course, red and pink are perhaps the most obvious color choices for love, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to create a week’s worth of Love Wraps with just two colors!

So I found myself seeing all of the different types of love in my mind’s eye, and then envisioning the myriad of colors we could associate with each. I was discovering that each color I mulled over would evoke different emotions and auras. Each color embodies love, is valid, and is unique and worthy of exploration.

As with so many of my musings, these thought processes translated into a week of fun Tichel styles and a bit of reading and research into color meanings. I got up each morning and picked up the scarf that called to me, did a bit of reading on the color, thought about which wrap type/style represented the aspect of love associated with the color, and then executed the wrap.  It was planned spontaneity…and I came up with what you see below.

Warmest Regards,

Olivia

PINK = Playful Love

Pink is a delicate color. Its meanings include… nice, sweet, playful, romantic, charming,, and tenderness. Pink is associated with flowers, babies, little girls, and sweetness. It is also considered the colour of universal love of oneself and others, representing friendship, affection, harmony, inner peace, and approachability.

This look was created using:

  • Wendy Beret Volumizer in Blonde
  • Wrapunzel Comfort Scarf (no longer available on the site, but am hoping it will return)
  • Wrapunzel Soft Pashmina
  • Brooch from the Wrapunzel Scarf Of The Month for January 2020

PEACH = Immortal Love

This is the second look in my Colours of Love Series. The Focus Color is Peach.

In researching the meanings associated with colors, I read that the peach fruit represents immortality in Chinese civilization; having been associated with the peach tree of immortality.

I have also learned that Peach is said to…
1. Encourage great communication
2. Stimulate great conversation
3. Inspire good manners
4. Put people at ease, and
5. Be charming

This look was created using:

  • Cream cotton scarf
  • Wrapunzel Original 2 in 1 in Peach
  • 3D lace applique
  • Wendy Beret Shaper

ORANGE = Adventurous Love

Today’s colors are Orange and Royal Purple with the main focus being on the color Orange.

Fun Color Facts:

  1. Orange is flamboyant and dynamic and radiates warmth.
  2. Orange gives confidence and injects fun.
  3. Other words associated with orange are: balance, abundance, adventure, happiness, optimism and strength.

This look was created using:

  • Orange Solid Pashmina
  • Purple Utter Enchantment Scarf, that could be replaced with a similar color in the Original 2 in 1, Tuff 2 in 1, or maybe even a Solid Pashmina in Eggplant
  • Ruffle option included an orange Israeli  Tichel
  • Wendy Beret volumizer 

BLUE = Intuitive Love

Today’s love color is blue. I am wearing several shades of this wonderful color in the artsy side swoop style.

Associated with blue…the sky and the sea, freedom,intuition, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity.

The color blue represents… depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, and intelligence.

This look was created using:

  • Wrapunzel Cranberry Scarf in Slate Blue
  • Wrapunzel Israeli Tichel (Silver Threads) – Dark Blue
  • The grey scarf was not Wrapunzel, but a viable option would be a Wrapunzel Tuff 2 in 1s Scarf in Pewter-
  • Wrapuznel Wendy Beret Shaper in Black (fully stuffed)
  • “Antique” pin (lol from the 1980’s) from my collection

GREEN = Abundant Love

Today’s focus colour is Green… the colour of life, renewal, nature, and energy

Green is associated with… freshness, safety, fertility, the environment, harmony, growth, and peace.

Green is soothing, relaxing, and youthful.

This look was created using:

  • Wrapunzel Bubbling Brook Scarf
  • Simple Style
  • Over a low bun velvet cap

GOLD AND BROWN = Illuminated Love

Today’s Colors are Gold and Brown. I chose to combine these two colors into the same look because they are cousin colors and they balance one another.

Gold is associated with illumination, love, compassion, courage, passion, magic, and wisdom. As a precious metal, gold is associated with wealth, grandeur, and prosperity.

Brown is the color of stability and Reliability. It is associated with dependability, comforting, honesty, support, and protection. Brown inspires us to appreciate the simple things in life.

As an aside… brown can be seen as boring and dull. I was not a big fan when I was younger and it has taken me many years to come to appreciate the beauty in such a humble color.

This look was created using:

  • Cranberry Scarf in Saffron
  • Cranberry Scarf in Olive
  • Shimmery Scarf in Gold
  • Wendy Beret Shaper in Blonde

RED = Romantic Love

Red is the colour of Fire and blood…

In eastern cultures, such as China, red is the colour of good luck and is a traditional colour worn by brides for their weddings. Brides in India also often wear red for their weddings.

Red is an emotionally intense colour.

Words associated with red…energy, strength, power, determination, passion, assertive, confident, spontaneous, determined, desire, and Love.

Signifies pioneering spirit, leadership, and is the colour of physical movement.

This look was created using:

  • A Red and Black “scarf” made from a remnant of the fabric used to make the dress I’m wearing
  • Tuff 2 in 1s Scarf in Black
  • Wendy Beret Shaper in Black

YELLOW = Optimistic Love

The focus color for today is yellow; which happens to be my favorite color.

Yellow is the color of the mind and intellect. It is optimistic and cheerful, uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, and inspires original thought and inquisitiveness.

Words associated with the color yellow include: happiness, clarity, energy, optimism, enlightenment,honor, loyalty, cheer, and joy.

I love to say yellow is the color of sunshine and dandelions… both of which bring me joy!

This look was created using:

  • White Soft Pashmina
  •  Light / Baby Yellow Pashmina (this one is similar to the Soft Pashmina but I think a light yellow Solid Pashmina would work. I may be mistaken but I thought there was an option for a very pale yellow Soft Pashmina in the past)
  • Shimmery Scarf in Saffron
  • Wendy Beret Shaper in White
  • Pin is from a Wrapunzel Scarf Of The Month I think from 2019. It’s my absolute favorite Wrapunzel pin. It looks like a chrysanthemum!
