I consider myself a creative person, and not just with words. I like to design graphically, decorate my home, make homemade gifts and cards, and then there is the whole culinary arts thing. I am a total foodie. I used to say that the perfect job would be to assign the names of paint colors, e.g., smoked salmon, sandy beach, sky crystal, etc. Just like words, there is a thesaurus for many different shapes and colors. If you need assistance in naming those colors, know that there is a thesaurus for that. Ingrid Sundberg, a writer and children’s book illustrator, created a unique infographic chart for anyone struggling with color names or for writers who are looking for a variety to choose from. Bored Panda brought this information to us in their article, “Writer Creates “Color Thesaurus” To Help You Correctly Name Any Color Imaginable.”

Color is very subjective. This handy guide uses the image of color to help expand your descriptive vocabulary regardless of the memory it evokes. Add some flourish to your conversation and go beyond green and blue to moss and indigo.
