Where Do You Find Color Inspiration?

Few of us would say our favorite color is white, yet that's just the hue of so many of our walls — even for those of us free to paint them any color we want! The challenge: finding a color we love and committing. But where do you find color inspiration?

The answer: everywhere! Color inspiration is all around us, if we pay attention. Be mindful of what's right under your nose — if the mood or look of a color strikes you, it just might be the hue for you. Look a little closer the next time you're...


From fields of lavender to flocks of flamingos, the vibrant colors of nature are just as arresting indoors. And even if you don't have beautiful birds right outside your door, you can still draw inspiration from a smooth stone or expanse of ivy.

At the Table

There's a reason we Instagram so many meals — food is gorgeous! From dainty pastels to sultry reds, appetizing paint choices are no further than your fridge. (Just don't blame us if your new green-apple wall induces cravings.)

On the Fashion Blogs

Fashion is a trendsetter for colors. If you like the way that new Opening Ceremony or Phillip Lim collection looks on you, you might love how it'd look on your walls, too.
