Color Scheme Inspiration – Spring

Color Scheme Inspiration – Spring

Hello Spring. It’s been a long time.

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. As we’ve said before, 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.

Springtime Inspired Palettes

We’ve compiled photos and palettes below that should help get your designs into the spring season. Design away!

Dawn of Spring


Windmill and Tulips


Rain Boots


Iron Nature


Sunset Warrior Arriving


Standing on Chair


Blooming Flowers


Welcome Back Spring

Even though plants seem to be the typical Spring symbol, there are plenty of other ways to show the season. If you’re feeling particularly inspired, why not share a Spring color scheme of your own? That’s exactly what the Build Internet ColourLover group is for. Post your spring-related inspirations (or otherwise) and share with the rest of our color-minded readers.

If you’re looking to integrate any of the color palettes seen here into a layout, I recommend taking a look at our “Build Site Color Schemes from Photography” article for more help.

A Side-note: It’s been a long time since we’ve put up one of these posts. We’re hoping to get them back on (at most) a bi-weekly rate. They won’t be replacing other scheduled posts, just adding to the overall posting schedule. What do you think? Would you like to see us add/remove anything to our color scheme posts to make them more useful?
