I color coordinate my top and under quilts
I color coordinate my quilts to complement my hammock and tarp
I coordinate everything (including my slings/straps, etc)
I have NO fashion sense--never had it, never will
But I do not see any need to coordinate colors - and in reality, having different colors combos for my UQ and my two TQs makes it a snap to see just what I am grabbing.
Chronologically, my purchases from Hammock Gear were colored as follows:
3/4 3-S UQ: Green, to match my CJH as closely as possible.
3-S TQ: Coyote Brown, as I liked the color and didn't want to duplicate.
Summer TQ: Black w/silver lining ("every cloud has a silver lining...")
Aww now I'm feeling self conscious about my camo tarp with bright yellow ridge line and tie outs!
Camo. Even have camo straps I got from Paul at AHE. I 'stealth hang' a bit, and the need for blending in to the environment is there. Am actually looking at having a white and grey-ish hammock, and matching TQ and UQ made for winter stealth hangs.
Good for hunting season, great for stealth hangs in the odd places I find myself now and then. Plus, as an old 'Nam Recon Rat, I like hiding in the woods and making sure I see everything/everyone before they see me. Hehehehe....
Are we all this crazy?

the one thing I do use is the bright glow wire tiedowns to see in the nite,,when I get up to take a "break" in the middle of the nite..just don't want to trip over the tie downs or water them..lmao..as well as I don't want anybody else to do so either.
+1 on the earth tones and/or camo for me. Camo is usually my 1st choice, after that, greens and browns...
i have a burrow on order and i originally ordered a black/grey TQ to match my Phoenix.
but then stormcrow announced that 7D was available so i opted for the upgrade but now my TQ will be all black...i guess it will still match my UQ

I voted that I coordinate....
BUT... that really just means I WOULD coordinate if I could afford to buy what I want!
Most of my gear is a hodgepodge of stuff I've picked up by grabbing good deals where I found them, regardless of color.
Give me a blank check to Hammockgear.com, OES and the like... I could look really sweet out in the woods.
