What Colour?

What influences you in deciding what colour Filofax to buy?  Some models come in quite a range of colours, the Domino and Finsbury seem to have a new colour added every year, replacing a previous colour, so there is always quite a range of colours available.

Do you like to match colours between sizes, if you use more than one. Or do you match the colour of your organiser to your bag or desk accessories?

As you can see in the picture above taken at the recent Philofaxy London meet up, red stands out as being a popular colour, all those crimson Maldens! Yes we did get our own back again!

So if you were to be a winner in our current competition, and you were given the choice of colour of your prize, how would you decide?

  2. I must admit I'm a sucker for pink and purple. I only bought the pocket Malden in crimson because of the price. If funds had permitted, it would have been the vintage pink :)

  3. A dark red one or light beige :)

  4. Well, I started off by being a bit fan of red, then moved over into other bright colours. However for some reason now I am more inclined to go for black or the dark plum - I see these as much more glamorous! Happily for all of us, Filofax do a wide range of colours, sizes and layouts, so we all have plenty of choice!

    Would be interesting to see their sales figures to see what is most popular in the different sizes.

  5. I love the pewter of the Butterfly and the aqua of the Finsbury. Would love to see some new colours for the Malden.

  6. Normally I like anything purple. But sometimes purple can be too dark even for me. Lately I prefer lighter, brighter colors for my Filofaxes. When it's something I'm going to look at so often every day, I like to see a cheery color. I love my Aqua Finsbury! I also have an Aston in Orchid on the way. ;D

  7. Forget to say I like the Ivory / mushroom colours too. I really like the new Aston in Mushroom.

  8. My Malden is red; I was just drawn to it! I don't like pink or purple ("don't like" is a euphemism for "hate") and pale beigey shades leave me cold. I also don't like matchy-matchy and for that reason my pocket Malden is black. I am quite fond of the "ink" colour that is my A5 Cuban. So I guess I tend towards the darker hues. I quite like the looks of the Cuban's chili and saddle brown as well.

  9. Hmm, red, pink, purple or possibly aqua. Definitely not one for brown or black filos, but my A4 Strata was a bargain. I only have the two, so it's just based on my favourite colours.

  10. Ohhhh colours! I like all colours. I love ivory and browns, all those natural shades. The Aston for example looks astonishing in mushroom, but somehow the ochre malden seems too...artificial? Not like natural leather, which is what I would be looking for.
    I'd like to see some more navy and dark blues Filos though... Oh and I am lusting over a tangerine Finsbury, it is such a fresh colour!
    ( now I am drooling all over! )

  11. As a man, I feel I have a choice of any color so long as it's black...

  12. Just now I'm using an old navy blue blue binder. I also have a lovely green Winchester, but apart from those they're mostly black and brown.

  13. I don't really have a preference when it comes to color. I bought the vintage pink Malden because I thought the color would be easier to spot in the black hole that is my handbag, but I also have a brown Kendal which I adore.
    I do however tend to stay away from the lightest colored Filos because I'm afraid they'll get dirty

  14. I loveeeee red- (what can I say i'm a scarlet woman).. but i rate texture as being more important than colour.. (I have an Amazona)
    I just got my delivery from Filofax Denmark 90kr sale and I am surprised by how much I love the orange Finsbury I bought for my brother.. the pattern on the leather is so pretty!

  15. i try not to get FF in the same colours, or even styles. Like to taste a little of each! so when im researching a new FF to buy whatever style & colours I already have are not options! (unless i really really want it!)

  16. I guess I am an anomaly in choosing a Filofax based on functionality rather than color. That said, I don't like either pink or purple personally (and I am female), and also don't like the more "faddish" colors. One Filofax that works well in a color that wears well is "enough" for me.

  17. I don't like the grey or the beige/mushroom etc colours. I prefer strong or dark colours. I have quite a range, but my least favourite colour is the lightest green one.

    i got a question to your orchid aston. are the stitches really as pink as they look on the pictures??

    and i totally agree with alison. the mushroom aston is gorgeous!! i´m very sad it´s not available in a5 :(

    my daily filo is a black one. cause i´m a reception secretary and it´s not "business" enough when there´s a neon pink dottet filo on my desk ;)

    i´m really missing a dark green one. a very rich grass-green would be great!

  19. Hi ninjij, my Aston isn't here yet but when it arrives I'll let you know about the stitching. There have been lots of questions about the Orchid color because some online images make it look more pink and others more darker purple, so I'll probably do a post on it when it's here. :)

  20. My black A5 Finsbury is my day to day Filofax of the moment, along with a slimline black Amazona for a 'handbag' diary. My mini pink zipped Finsbury is now used for shopping lists and recipes. I feel like black is more business like..... especially as I use stickers and postcards to jolly up my Filofax inside!!

  23. I have clearly defined color priorities for every long living accessory I buy (that of course also applies to filos):

    1) dark purple
    2) red
    3) grey
    4) black

    So it's not a surprise that my first filo was a red metropol and now I use a crimson piazza – and I love it.

  24. I like purple and related shades, raspberry, even burgundy! But I do have a few red ones and of course my gorgeous aqua finsbury!
    Oh and pink of course!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My choice would always be between red and green, but of course nice green filofaxes just don't exist (why?!?!) so I would normally go for red. My new A5 Finsbury is in aqua though - a colour that seriously brightens my day :)

  26. I saw a Personal Cross on eBay recently, in a colour called 'French Blue'. It was DELICIOUS!

  27. Though I'm not usually into blues- I do love the Aqua/teal ones. I would love something in orange though. I hope they come out with a burnt orange soon.
