In the 80's I thought I would really be ''with it'' to paint my entire apartment a brick red. Ha! People hated it! And as night fell it was so dark and dismal. It was easier to move than paint over it.

Not a fan of the muddy colors. I prefer teals and blues, with cream, white, blush or cranberry accents. These colors seem depressing to me. But color choice is entirely personal, so just pick what makes you happy!

"Off topic". My life is not a cafeteria tray with separate compartments so the corn doesn't touch the mashed potatoes. Clients sometimes ask if they are being charged for the time we are "off topic". If it is my guilty pleasure there no charge but topics that are relevant, but not directly related to their specific program, often yield the most useful information towards getting the best design for them.

So, why are some of these colors promoted or trends in general? It has to do with the philosophy of the system of which it is part of, which is what we were discussing. It is often challenging to see something clearly/completely when one is right next to it so if you back away from it a bit you get a better perspective.
