A to Z Challenge: Writing Colors - Vermilion

This is the A to Z Challenge, and I welcome you back!

This year, I have been providing different colors for descriptive purposes in writing using the website Color-ize to look at an alphabetical list of colors that we can use instead of using the same basic colors we know off the top of our heads. One color can come in so many shades; why not take a look at them?

Today's color is: Vermilion.

Oh, how I love this color. It's SO beautiful. Not quite red, but it's so rich. When I first heard the word "vermilion," my initial thought was like a reptilian shade of green. Boy, was I surprised when I learned it was the complete opposite. I need this color in lipstick. It's very sultry.

Do you like it?


  1. I love it! I feel like I'd want to paint a room that color.
