Color Scheme Inspiration – Windows

Color Scheme Inspiration – Windows

It’s a look into the outside world through a series of window related photographs today.

Wondering what this post is all about? Every couple weeks or so, we scavenge Flickr for some wonderfully inspiring photography to build color schemes from. The results can be used to start graphic and web projects of all sizes. Inspiration comes in funny places sometimes.

Photos are all found via Flickr (follow image links for author info). Color schemes are available to download through COLOURlovers.

Looking for more window theme photos to work with? There’s a number of Flickr groups dedicated to everything window related. Two of my (recently discovered) favorites are the Doors & Window Project and Windows of the World. Between the two, there’s over 90,000 photos of window related imagery. Good luck running out of inspiration.

If you make something spectacular, be sure to post it to our official Build Internet group on Colourlovers where it will be appreciated by a whole community of color enthusiasts from around the globe.

    Thanks, Zach, I think this is a really good idea for creative ideas, I particularly like the freshness of China Town Window.

    And as I look up for a moment, I realise that the early morning darkness has been replaced by pink sky and powder blue clouds… better go get my own camera out!
