Nature-Inspired Color Palettes AKA Design Seeds For Designers, Crafters And Home Decorators

I am Jessica Colaluca, a creator of Design Seeds. A color schemes and inspiration site, Design Seeds celebrate the hues found in nature and the aesthetic of purposeful living.

Little did I know what a universal passion my love for color palettes was. Design Seeds has become my full-time job and a passion project that gratefully continues to grow. Over the years, folks have written to me and shared what Design Seeds mean to them and how they are inspired by my pick of colors. Designers, artists, crafters, people planning weddings, home decorating, and more have found inspiration in Design Seeds color matching. I have also received very touching and personal emails from those in emotionally trying times who find a breath of happiness by immersing themselves in the process of creating color palettes. Folks in remission have told me they “feel” the hues of the color wheel more intensely than before chemo, and Design Seeds have a therapeutic effect on them.

Since January 2015, I have begun accepting photo submissions for Design Seeds, and the creative synergy of the growing community has been incredible. Talented folks from around the world share their photos via Instagram using the SeedsColor hashtag, for creating color palettes from images.

The beautiful words of the following Indian Proverb best express the ethos of Design Seeds – “All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.”

HEX codes are available for Design Seeds ... i also highly recommend to *not* use color pickers / generators ... as these programs are computer algorithms and do not "see" color (as a result, they create inharmonious palettes) ... i illustrate the difference between the human eye / talent and computer software in this post : http://blog.design-seeds.com/2012/01/20/generating-color/

As one that can spend hours in a paint department playing with color chips (for the pleasure of looking at the colors, not for home decorating), I can relate to this.
