Color Palettes in the Wild World

Brainstorming color palettes for your latest project can end in one of two ways:

1- You gleefully dancing down a rainbow of original brilliance.

2- You fighting your way out of a tattered color wheel of frustration.

Typically (sigh), it’s the latter. But it doesn’t have to be so complicated. Overthinking bogs down creativity and productivity, which makes you want to throw in the paint brush. Chilllll! Get out of your head. Finding inspiration is as easy as stepping outside and into the great outdoors. Chances are you won’t have to go far to find a natural grouping of colors living harmoniously together. And if it’s good enough for nature, it’s good enough for your living room!

Here are some beautiful nature scenes that could easily serve as muse for design color palettes:
