Color Scheme Inspiration – Fresh from the Bakery

Color Scheme Inspiration – Fresh from the Bakery

Have a sweet tooth? This round of color palettes should aim to please.

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.

What’s Cookin’?

It turns out that food photography is a wildly popular community builder. This means that you’ve got plenty of imagery to work with. In the mood to put together a bakery themed color scheme of your own? That’s exactly what the Build Internet ColourLover group is for. Post your food related inspirations (or otherwise) and share with the rest of our color-minded readers.

    Hi Zach,

    I really liked your post! Interesting color combinations. I really like the color orange (bright orange). Do you happen to have any combinations with that?

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
