Favorite Color?
« on: April 03, 2010, 10:21:12 PM »
I was just wondering, if anyone may know of Tatiana's favorite color(s), no books, websites, or her letters and diary entries never seem to mention it.

I don't know either. However, in a letter to Zinadia Tolstoya, Tatiana talks about some embroidered handbags that might give a hint as to the girls' color preferences:

Tsarskoe Selo, 23 June 1917
Dearest ZS,
I am terribly ashamed that I still have not thanked you for your letter on the 29th of May and the lovely embroidered bags. I took the bluish one with multicolored flowers, Olga-blue with yellow roses, Anastasia- pink, and Maria- all yellow. They are very useful and those always remind us of you.

That is very interesting. My ideas of their favorite colors are very close to those, odd.

Oh i always wondered this.
I always thought Tatiana's favourite color was yellow o.O
I don't know why, I read somewhere, I don't remember, a quick reference, I'm not sure...

I've never read anywhere a reference to favorite colors.

Sarushka's source is a good guess, though. I've always assumed Anastasia's favorite color would be red/pink since when she hand-tinted photographs she always put Olga in blue, Maria in green, and herself in red/pink

Yes, I agree. I should not trust in most of websites. That's a lot of guessing

Yeah, there isn't really any way to know, unless Tatiana herself wrote it down somewhere and that writing still exists today.
