The difficulty with colours is that they’re so changeable. Depending on the time of day, the materials they’re used on, and what thye’re matched with – a colour can take on a completely different personalitiy and feel. With so many shades and tones to choose from sticking to finding the right colour theme can be particularly challenging.
I recently came across a nifty site which was like going for colour counselling. Design Seeds is a site all about colour. With swatches based on inspiration photos, the site offers a bit of clarity and focus to one’s colour choices – great for getting inspiration.
I especially like the “find palettes you love” tool.
