Polychromatic is having or exhibiting a variety of colors. Polychromatic was first used in 1841 and derives from the Greek polychrōmatos which is a combination of poly- (many) and chromatic (pertaining to color or colors).
Polychromatic is a bright, vibrant, thoroughly colorful word, per it’s definition. Oh yes, there are plenty of colors that are dull, dark, and even muddy, but since all colors add variation and depth to the world, anything polychromatic has the ability to be wonderful! Polychromatic goes hand in hand with kaleidoscope and it’s a word I just really enjoy.
A polychromatic, almost kaleidoscopic effect, no?
After last week’s bit of seriousness with misogyny, I simply had to provide some lighter mind fare, and what better than something as colorful and inclusive as polychromatic! I absolutely adore color and the more the better! How do you like your colors?
