Roses are red and violets are blue. But what does it mean if
your walls are red too? You are likely the kind of person who wants to make a statement, who would enjoy people coming into the home and saying ‘wow’. It’s an attention-getter. That’s what the (red-user) wants. You’re also probably more extroverted.
Blue is associated with constancy, dependability and loyalty. Someone who paints all or part of a room blue could value those qualities and want to bring them into the home. Blue is a favorite color the world over. Likely because blue is the color of the sky on a nice day.

Sometimes, white walls signal a  rmly developed design sense, especially if you’ve paired that color selection with modern or minimalist design. (Picture a high-end art gallery.) White is the default selection for people who don’t know what to do with, or are overwhelmed by, color. But white shades are beginning to come back into vogue again.
Now you know what room color says about personality.
