painting a palette.
sometimes when i’m looking for an inspiring color palette, i’m not necessarily looking at decor images alone. i find so much inspiration through alternative channels — art galleries, just taking a walk around the city, or photography sites like instagram and flickr. even though i don’t post on flickr like i used too, still lots of talented people do and there’s lovely photography to be found there — like this funky old signage. that color palette is just stunning, and had i not stumbled over there, and let my imagination run wild a bit with these colors, who knows, perhaps nothing would have come of it. but that’s why i always try and keep my eyes open — you can find just what you’re looking for when you least expect it. ideas come from everywhere! here’s what the color palette of this old german-made sign inspired for me.
