Let it B | MyBoysen has come up with many quizzes over the years that help our readers choose their colors and color palettes based on very unscientific means, like the kind of condiment you prefer, the cake that makes your mouth water, or what type of makeup you use.

These are the top 10 quizzes of all time:

  1. What Color Should You Paint Your Bedroom?
  2. What Kind of Pink are You?
  3. Which Color of the Year are You?
  4. What Condiment are You?
  5. Get a Neutral Paint Palette Based on Your Favorite Coffee
  6. Get a Paint Color Palette Based on the Type of Cat You Like
  7. Have Your Cake and Paint It Too
  8. Get a Full Course Meal and We’ll Suggest a Color Palette
  9. Paint Color Ideas Based on Your Makeup Style
  10. Are You a Mountain or a Wave Person?

We know that choosing colors for your home is not something most people take lightly. We also know that there are many who do not know what colors they like, so they end up with white and beige paint colors which are fail-safe and flexible. Nothing wrong with that. But these quizzes should help you or at least inspire you to put on your fun lens in the selection of your house paint colors.

Sample of Quiz Results

Just to give you a glimpse into the kind of result you will get if you answer the quiz, here they are, a sample result for each quiz.

1.   What Color Should You Paint Your Bedroom?

This is the kind of result you can get from the quizzes. For palettes, the colors have been chosen so that you can combine them and be confident that they would look good. You will also get the paint name and code so that if you like the colors, you can bring those details when you make the purchase at any of our Mix and Match Stations.

2.   What Kind of Pink are You?

Mean Girls-Inspired Quiz: What Kind of Pink Are You? | MyBoysen

Pink has become one of my favorite colors. I used to love black, black, and more black. But then like most people, my tastes have changed.

Boysen’s Iced Peach is the closest color match to the blush pink trend a few years ago. Blush is a very tender color that is a mix of the tints found in apricot, grapefruit or even the palest pink salmon. Read more about having a girly-girl’s ultra-feminine bedroom by clicking on this link.

3.   Which Color of the Year are You?

MyBoysen's Top 10 Fun Quizzes | MyBoysen

The results of this quiz will give you your color based on Pantone’s Colors of the Year.

Ultra Violet was Pantone’s selection for 2018. It’s a “blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level (Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute).”

Boysen’s closest color match for Ultra Violet is When Red Met Blue. Check out the collages for this colors that we made in this article.

4.   What Condiment are You?

Well, if you never expected that your choice of condiment would give you a color palette, you can think again. Our resident quiz maker is a mine of creative ideas, and she finds inspiration even in toyo.

The underlying message is observe your world and be thankful that colors are all around us, even in the sawsawan we use. The choice of colors for our home may be a serious business but there is nothing written anywhere that says we should all be stodgy when choosing the best version of the hues that appeal to us.

5.   Get a Neutral Palette Based on Your Favorite Coffee

Coffee! It’s the brew that gives you a buzz to start the day and to get you over some energy humps as afternoon rolls by.

Take the quiz several times to see all the results, and explore the earthy colors that coffee can inspire. What you will get when you play this quiz are color palettes that are complex, dynamic, and impactful.

6.   Get a Paint Color Palette Based on the Type of Cat You Like

After Condiment, then Coffee, now we have Cat. Don’t question where inspiration comes from because it comes from everywhere, even from that Creature that Crawled onto your lap begging for a good Caress. Yes, I am on a roll with the Cs.

This is a quiz with just one question. It asks you to click on the type of your current cat, or if you are cat-less at the moment, it asks you to click on the cat of your dreams. Once you’ve done that, voilà, you get your color palette like the one above.

I love the greens and the gold, don’t you?

7.   Have Your Cake and Paint It Too

MyBoysen's Top 10 Fun Quizzes | MyBoysen

And of course, I will succumb to the alliterative temptation – Condiment, Coffee, Cat, and now Cake.

Yes, this quiz maker of ours loves to eat, egged on by another writer who has such a sweet tooth that an azucarera will have no problems surviving an economic slump.

But you must admit, that judging from the mood board above, the color palette is very attractive. You’ve got the neutrals as a base color, then red and blue as the accent colors. This color palette would look good in modern rustic or classical interiors. This would also look good in a boy’s bedroom. Check out interior designer Clare Bolger’s bedroom for a kid.

Her design tip, “I love using wall stickers in children’s rooms as a cheap and easy way of adding interest – and as long as you get peelable ones, they can easily be removed as your little one grows out of them.”

8.   Get a Full Course Meal and We’ll Suggest a Color Palette

Yes, I confess that it’s not only two but it’s the whole team, in fact, who loves to eat.

Food is something we should all look at more closely now. With this pandemic, it would help to take care of our health and boost our immunity with a good diet.

The results for this quiz are based on Boysen Color Trend 2019.  Click on the link and find out what color palette appeals to you. My personal favorite is ENLIGHTEN. Watch the video to find out why.

9.   Paint Color Ideas Based on Your Makeup Style

MyBoysen's Top 10 Fun Quizzes | MyBoysen

Makeup is a good source of inspiration for choosing colors, just like fashion. If you want to wear certain colors, then chances are you would like to paint your home with similar colors.

This one has my preference because it looks natural. Especially these days when faces are covered with masks and face shields, or we’re mostly inside the safety of our homes, makeup isn’t that important. Well, if you want to look pretty during your Zoom meeting, maybe you would consider buying eye makeup from online stores and add a lipstick. What is important still though is skincare so go ahead and pamper yourself with that.

10.   Are You a Mountain or a Wave Person?

Finally, a modicum of exercise! If you have the chance to immerse yourself in nature now, go ahead and do it because it can improve your physical and mental health.

It’s not for nothing that more people are attracted to biophilic design because it connects us to nature. Designing our homes as an extension of nature is beneficial to our well-being.
