I love color.
In the office, I’m known as the girl who wears colored skinny jeans. Yes, I’m that girl. In fact, right now I’m wearing some bright blue ones! I like color.
And I love looking at different color palettes. I see them all over Pinterest and often find myself repinning my favorites. Take this one for instance!
Isn’t that scheme oh so fresh? Did you know you could use a photo to generate your own color scheme? It’s great for when you find a photo with the perfect mixture of colors to make you swoon. Just upload the photo and it’ll pull the colors out for you. There are some sites online that do the trick! Check out this website for instance.
