I like to get inspiration from nature sometimes ... once I chose the colors for a website based on the center of a magnolia blossom after the petals had dropped. I remember two of the colors were a lovely pale green, and eggplant purple.

i always go to the art & design forum for colour ideas

in the interior decor threads, shop displays and artwork of the day

you can get ideas on also the proportions of colour
it's all about a dominant colour with accents of another colour
and also ideas on composition
how much pattern to have exposed and also what materials you might consider when putting looks together

gius, right on!. I love looking at interior decor for color/pattern inspiration.
curtains, teapots + wallpaper are great sources of inspiration for pattern mixing + matching [Vogue Living . ! ]. I remember seeing someone mix striped wallpaper [v. thin butter + white verticals] w/floral curtains & thought . . 'that looks beautiful!'

marni ss/08.
grey mixed w/toffee, black & teal . .
& the deep forest green

^ Purple is a very spiritual color ... I remember having a very interesting conversation with a furniture delivery guy about the purple color scheme in my living room

wiw, the purple wallcolour in the 1st is gorgeous . !
I once considered painting 1 of my bedroom walls a deep eggplant & leaving the other 3 bare white.
. . instead I opted for neon green paint on all 4.
no regrets though!.


hunter green + navy + pale blue + chocolate.
definetly one of my top 5 colour combinations.
he looks positively dreamy.
