What does choosing this colour say about you?

Vanilla lovers are refined and traditional, rich and conservative.
You have a gentle look, both in your appearance and the way you feel, with a slightly vintage feel and temperament.
If white is too sterile for you - you need more colour in your life because you are easy going and relaxed, and white is too fussy and particular for you.
And you are spontaneous and impulsive person and white is too self controlled for you.”#2
Also loving cream means that:
• You need lots of interesting things going on in your life - the simple life is too boring for you.
• You are not concerned with order and perfection in your own life - a little dust on the shelves is okay with you.
• You take life as you find it and make the most of what you have.#2
These words describe a person who chooses cream:
“Original, imaginative, joyful, happy, idealistic, creative, artistic, spiritual, optimistic, intelligent with a love of learning, you’re light and sunny, you have the energy of summer and spring, being philosophical, cheery, and hopeful, with lots of energy”.#34

Those who love the colour of ivory have a “natural affinity for the young and love the outdoors, and are clever, but not interested in heavy academic debate. On the downside, they can be single-minded, do too many things at once.”#34
All these attributes and personality traits have been observed for those who chose cream, or ivory, or a Silky Kisses Vanilla Shimmer. You may not feel you fit all the descriptions but we know that you’re a beautifully soft person with a natural outlook, and a fun but relaxed attitude to life.
What can a Silky Kisses Vanilla Shimmer silk pillowcase do for you?
Choosing a cream colour indicates you may be looking for its elegance and sophisticated warm tones to evoke a sense of peaceful antiquity and calm in your bedroom.
This pillow case allows a quiet and calm energy to surround you while in your bed, and works on the growing maturity of your subconscious mind towards more acceptance and tolerance as you sleep.
If you’ve chosen a cream colour toned silk pillowcase for your bed this will set a relaxed atmosphere and a subdued neutral background for any other colours in your room.
With too much of this colour around you can develop into someone who is out of touch with reality. Think of the phrase “ivory tower” which is typically a place of refuge or seclusion from the world.#31
