To dream of something being colored represents your feelings about an area of your life that feels uneasy or irregular. Something is not normal about you or your life.
If you are in the dream it may reflect your feelings about yourself having a problem or flaw that is noticeable to others. There may be some area of your life where you are not your usual self.
Example: A young man dreamed of seeing a text sentence describing faces. In waking life he was adopted and believed something must have been wrong with his real parents if they gave him up for adoption.
