Color Palette Generator

Hello! How was your weekend? Ours was really nice! We celebrated January/February birthdays and anniversaries at my oldest daughters house yesterday and it was great to have the whole family together. Missing everyone since we moved over an hour away to the "big city" of Kirkland, Washington. ;)

O.k., it's probably no secret that I love color. In fact, I started Simply Hue almost 3 years ago when I was a color consultant (I went into clients homes and helped them choose a color palette/scheme for their walls and decor). It was a lot of fun but because of my some health issues it became a little too much for me.

This morning I came across Big Huge Labs Color Palette Generator and have been playing around with it for the last half hour. All you need to do if you'd like to try it out is upload a photo/piece of artwork and click on "create". Voila! A color palette is generated based on the colors in the image you uploaded! For other fun games and utilities, follow THIS LINK.

I know there are other online palette generators that I'm not aware of so if you know of any, please do share them in the comments section below (so I can waste and whittle away even more time!). xo

  2. This is so cool! Thanks for showing, and a color consultant?? - sounds awesome!

  3. I love your blog! I used these images for one of my own blog posts (of course i cited your wonderful blog!) but I just found them so beautiful and perfect, especially for a spring-inspired post. Anyways, just thought I would let you know :)


Thanks so much for your comments. Your thoughts, opinions, and ideas are important to me!
