It’s fair to say that I’m having a love affair with color. It started when I was a little girl and discovered neon green. My love have green has morphed from neon green to lime green to true grass green. And then there’s purple, red, ivory, yeah it isn’t wise to get me started.

I was so happy to have stumbled across this site. COLOURlovers is devoted to color palettes and patterns. I’m sure you might be thinking, “What the heck do I need those for?” Well I’ve thought up a ton of uses for them. I’ll share just a few with you here:

1. Decorating
2. Art
3. Pairing colors for web design

I’m being good. I’m only sharing three. For the first one on my list, decorating. You could easily discover a palette or pattern you’d like to decorate around. Or if you’re stuck on find complimentary colors to go with the colors you have already, you could find a palette centered on the color you have and use the other colors in it to accessorize.

I think the Art idea is rather obvious. Whether you’re mixing clay, paint, or paper – you could definitely find inspiration off the palettes and patterns here.

Web design can be tricky. Sometimes colors you think will look snazzy together don’t after all. Save yourself time by checking out the palettes before committing to color. While we’re on the subject of web design, another spiffy use for the patterns would be to use them in your blog’s background. Just make sure you credit the site.

Navigation is easy. Just use the navigation strip along the top of the page. Your options are: Forums, Palettes, Patterns, Colors, Lovers, Blog, and Trends.

It’s all standard navigation, but if you’re looking for a FAQ head on over to the forums section. You’ll find it under Color Talk, it’s titled F.A.Q.: Sharing the Love.

Also – if you decide to register (which was really easy) you can favorite the palettes and mark the ones you love.

Oh my gosh, I almost forgot! You can create your own palettes too! On either the pattern or the palette section – just select new. For example if you were making a pattern. You’d select the pattern you want, and then you’d select a color for each part of the pattern. Clicking on the color box will bring up a color wheel that you can select the color from. Then you just name it and save it!

Now go forth and enjoy color!
