Graphic designer Rachael Beresh creates repeating patterns daily, and calls out the five colors used in her inspiration photographs. Sometimes it can be helpful to see the ways in which other creative types put shades together, because these groups (desaturated a little, maybe) could work beautifully as interior schemes.
Besides the color selections, we love the quirky designs and would love to use them as wallpaper! Though the site seems pretty new, it promises to update often, so check out apatternaday. for more color inspiration.
