Design Seeds

Have you discovered Design Seeds? I recently read about it over on Canoe Ridge Creations and had to check it out. Beware — it's crazy addictive. Each day, she posts a picture and the colors she takes from it, as design inspirations. Like this one, which I absolutely love:
Color Pier from Design Seeds
Or what about this one?
Tagged from Design Seeds
And this? Beautiful.

Um, you know how I feel about teal.
Sea Glass from Design Seeds
I'll admit, I love color and patterns, but I'm pretty conservative about combining them. I'm never very confident about my choices, but this site is wonderful because you can find just about any color combination you could possibly imagine (and many you couldn't), which gives me the ability to see it all together, and maybe, just maybe, the courage to try using it in real life. Like this one, which needs to be in something soon:
Crystal color from Design Seeds
Plus, there's a palette search option, so you can look up palettes based on color, season, collection, and palette type. I have a feeling this site is going to be a favorite for a long time. Don't say I didn't warn you.


  1. I hadn't discovered design seeds. Wow! So cool. Thank you for sharing! :)

  2. You absolutely highlighted some of my favorites! Design Seeds is definitely super addictive :)

  3. This is great! I didn't know about it until you shared. I can see how it'll be a good resource!
