Like these graphics? It's the way I show color now. I got tired of seeing the internet flooded with the pretty picture and all the rectangles below - everything started looking the same. This, gives color a whole new look.
When you say “joy” happy colors come to my mind. No grays, no muted hues, no dark dingy colors just crisp clean colors like the smell of fresh linens hung out on the line to dry and yes I just used the sense of smell to describe a color palette.
