Color Scheme Inspiration – Suburbia

Color Scheme Inspiration – Suburbia

Hello there neighbor!

It’s a lovely day in the neighborhood and we’re making the best of it by scoping out some of the freshest colors hidden amongst white picket fences, perfectly trimmed lawns, and cookie cutter homes.

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

What Nicely Trimmed Hedges You Have!

Any part of suburbia speak to you? We’d love to see you share it with Colourlovers group for Build Internet! readers. Time to make your neighbors jealous!

    Suburban mailboxes looks great, but I don’t run an Italian restaurant :(

    I love your Color Scheme Inspiration series. From a designer who sucks at coming up with nice color palettes, you make it seem so easy. I will definitely start using pictures as a starting point.

    I love “Mall Rush” and “Storm Wash” color schemes. Urban colors are mostly exposing hues taken from architectural building materials. Grey-scale colors dominate the schemes to represent the color of concrete, metal shield or glasses.
    Great post! and I’m your new connection at COLOURlovers :)

    I believe the first test of truly great man is his humility.
