5 Free Tools to find Color Palettes for Decoration

Here are some handy color selection online resources we use when selecting colors for our artwork:

PHOTOCOPA

Photocopa allows you to create color palettes based on a current photograph. You can select the photo either from a flickr link or a url link (you can not directly upload the photo from your hard drive). These are the colors we chose for one of our homepage images.

This tool comes in handy if you want to match your décor to a photo wall gallery.

COLOR SCHEME DESIGNER

Color Scheme Designer palette maker

Pumpkin orange complementary colors

With Color Scheme Designer you can start with a base color and create monochromatic, analogic, complementary (like in our example above) and other color palettes. You can even share your unique scheme id with someone else, say your designer or friends, and discuss your choices.

KULER

Adobe’s awesome Kuler color palette maker

Kuler’s beautiful interface allows you to create endless color possibilities. We really like to see other user’s color combinations, as well as the quirky names some of them have (“His wife’s husband” ?)

SEAMLESS PATTERN DESIGNER

Create seamless patters with your own color palettes

Seamless Studio makes it easy to design a seamless pattern and add different colors to it. You can also select from their wide gallery of existing patterns.

ALLPOPART COLOR GALLERY
