fun with colors

As a designer, I often find myself drawn to the same colors over and over again – shades of blue and gray are my happy place! Unfortunately there’s nothing more annoying than finding the perfect palette for a particular project before realizing you’ve already used it in 5 other things. Sigh. New color inspiration to the rescue! After spending some quality time with Photoshop, here are a few fun pairings I’ve come up with on the road to color exploration!

    Lol I totally understand! ;)

  2. I totally hear you about the over-use of the same color palette. Story of my life! Gah. That’s an exercise I should do more often. Love the blue and peach one, and also th grey and red one!

    They’re all so pretty! Lately I’m finding myself drawn to the brightest possible colors—probably because I’m so tired of this long and dreary winter!

    I love the gray and orange palette. Perfect segue to Spring!

    Ooh the bottom left pairing is gorgeous! But I’m with you, I keep coming back to gray! It’s always perfect, I guess that’s why we can’t seem to shake it? xo

    I totally know what you mean, I always seem to gravitate towards really similar colour palettes – these combinations are gorgeous!
