have you ever picked up a piece of fabric or paint but never been able to match it?
I know I have.
let me tell you a story I have this roll of amazing orange duchess satin I picked up for a steal I think it was 10 the roll. However I have never been able to match it so it’s sat alone and dejected in my back room slightly waiting for the day I use it.
Now, there is a old joke about how oranges cant rhyme. but picking a colour to suit this orange was beyond me.
that was until I remembered this wonderful sites.
http://colorschemedesigner.com/ recreates a colour wheel online. creating virtually instant matches of monochromatic, complementary and triad colours. simple and amazing!
http://design-seeds.com/ several colour swatch cards based on photos, great to help pick colours or to start new projects. I love the colour finder! I love this site!
http://sarahhearts.com/category/color-palettes/ another swatch site not as in depth as Design-seeds though.
Now I think a lovely peacock blue to match my bright orange stain? don’t you think 🙂
Or maybe a few cushions for cuddles.. hmm
