You Will Explode When You See These Color Combos

Oh my god, colors. Am I right?

Colors, colors, colors, colors, colors. And more colors. I loathe the question what is your favorite color and anyone who asks me that question gets a swift punch in the forehead. There’s no loving one color, people. There is only loving color groupings.

Okay maybe the Tiffany blue is gorgeous on its own, but that is the exception, and it’s spoken for, so buck up and accept the idea of colors as comrades.

Now, onto the color combos…

Brights Featuring Pink

My first image links to nothing on Pinterest, sadly. But it’s a beautiful, bright bit of crochet, eh?

Print & Pattern is a fantastic source of color and creative inspiration if you don’t know about it already. Regardez this textile fabulousness from Liz Payne.

Aeropagita Prints sells these really cool rain droppy patterns on Society6 items.

I uploaded this blurry photo of purple watercolors I had and it spit out the palette underneath:

Oooooh this one came from Palette FX. I like it even more!

And then there’s the Adobe site, that goes completely beyond my color comprehension, but is fun to play on sometimes. I plugged my site hex color in and got analogous colors to that. It’s a veritable feast for the eyes.

This site is for when you want to get baked out of your mind and sit and press the space bar for a few hours. It literally just generates random color palettes and you literally just keep sitting there, pressing, staring, drooling.

Colourlovers is like a social media group for people who want to make, share, and discover color palettes. It’s fun to poke around in the trends dropdown menu.

Speaking of fab color combos – check out my post on Monika Forsberg and bask in the delight that is her color genius.
