Color Scheme Inspiration – Desert Landscapes

Having trouble finding a good color scheme? Color scheme inspirations will aim to fix that! Each post, we’ll pick out a topic and build color schemes out of it to inspire.

Dry and desolate? Try creative and motivational! Pack some water because this round of color schemes focuses on some of the hottest desert spots of the planet.

Photos are all found via Flickr (follow image links for more on the author), and color schemes are available to download on COLOURlovers.

    Very nice. I’m kind of partial to the Deserted Tree scheme.

    Beautiful. I grew up in the desert, this just makes me nostalgic.

    The pictures are really beautiful, and I think when you see the palette in nature, you can really see how well they work.

    Absolutely amazing colors
