10 Unique Color Palettes That Inspire Creativity And Fresh Designs (plus how to make your own palettes too!)

Color palettes can be used for any creative endeavor. Sometimes, I'll look at a palette that will inspire a new painting. Having pre-made color palettes on hand keeps me from sticking to the same colors I innately gravitate toward, resulting in a refreshing design from colors I typically don't gravitate toward. Here are ten color palettes I designed (my gift to you!). Hopefully, you will find yourself inspired to create something brand new.

When trying to explain to everyone involved in my upcoming wedding (November 14!) what the colors are, it seemed names like “coral” and “sea foam green” were not specific enough. Someone’s view of coral might be more red or pink than I imagine it. What if a flower girl thinks of it as orange? What if my dad thinks sea foam green is  the color of actual sea foam? It’s too risky! I decided. So, I set out to create my own color palette from scratch.

Sea foamy...

How do I explain to a grey-bearded boat captain that sea foam is not sea foam green?

The “names” of colors just don’t cut it when it comes to design, especially for an epic event like my wedding day. So, I dug around and came across this awesome app called, Color ViewFinder, which allowed me to create the exact color palette I envision for my wedding. I’m so much more relieved now that I can actually pull the palette up on my phone screen and say, “these are the colors for the wedding,” with confidence and clarity.

This palette discovery has totally inspired me. Color palettes can be used for any creative endeavor. Sometimes, I’ll look at a palette that will bring about a new idea for a painting. My pre-made color palettes keep me from sticking to the same colors I innately gravitate toward, resulting in a refreshing design from colors I typically don’t gravitate toward. Here are ten color palettes I designed (my gift to you!). Hopefully, you will find yourself inspired to create something brand new.
