When choosing paint and fabric for my home, I'm often inspired by fashion -- the way textures and colors play off of each other in a terrific outfit. Using an ivory cashmere cowl neck, skinny camel wool pants, chocolate suede boots and gold bangles as a starting point will result in a room very different from, say, a classic Lilly cotton shift and lime green Jack Rogers. The next time you start a decorating project, snap a picture of your inspiration (whether it's a Michael Kors ad or a Vermont farm) and check out the Color Palette Generator from BigHugeLabs -- a freakin' fabulous (and free) web tool that converts photos into color palettes.
...turns into this palette!
So tell me, when it come to decorating, are you most inspired by nature, fashion, homes or something else completely?
