Design Seeds

My sister mentioned this site to me a few weeks ago and I've been addicted ever since. The concept is simple - Jessica, the writer of Design Seeds, uses her art school education and design knowledge to put together beautiful color palettes. And we enjoy the eye candy. Easy peasy.

As someone who loves color, but isn't always that adept at putting color combinations together, this kind of inspiration is a gold mine. I can peruse the archives of this one site and find palette after palette of fantastic choices. Whether it's for personal style (of which I have none) or design style (only a smidge of that in me), this will be a go to site for sure.

I think it's genius to use combinations you see around you, especially those occurring in nature, to create a color board. That's why I think it's great that Jessica includes a beautiful photo with every palette. A while back I'd bookmarked a site that would allow you to upload a photo and the site would generate a palette for you based on that photo. I lost that bookmark when switching computers, but like this concept even better since the work is completely done and I don't even have to find an inspiration image. Laziness at its best.

I've included some of my favorite combos and have only gone back through two months of posts. I sense a new addiction.

I'll have to check this website out...but I sure don't need another online addiction! : )

The first color combo is really pretty.
