Our first dilemma- what color palette should we use? (This is especially tough since we're still noodling with the color palette of our boutique and we'd like them to match.) Should the blog layout have turquoise in it since Pantone, the global authority on color and well-known provider of design standards, announced back in December that Turquoise Pantone 15-5519 is the official color for 2010. Seems like a no brainer, right? Okay, then. Now what about accent colors? How many should we use? Do we want bold accents? Soothing accents? There are to many options when you're choosing from...all the colors in the world!
So, here's what we're gonna do. We're going to spend some quality time on COLOURLovers. (For all you color junkies out there this is going to be your new favorite site.) COLOURLovers, in a nutshell, is an online community where people from all over the world create and share colors, palettes and patterns...all in the name of love. That's right, love. You can download them and use them for free, create your own, bookmark favorites and a bunch of other things. It's pretty much the most colorful and mesmerizing way to pass an afternoon. We're gonna go get started.
