Color

Choosing colors can be the most exciting – or frustrating – part of the design process, but it doesn’t have to be. There are some great resources out there, beyond the basic paint store palette. 

Adobe.com has a huge library of color combinations inspired by trends in fashion, travel, architecture – even cooking! Create a free account, click on the samples you like, and it will provide you with Pantone color codes you can download (or screen shot) for paint matching at your preferred paint store or design center.

Colormind.io allows you to upload any photo and it will generate palettes of colors that work well together based your photo. It has a random generate feature that allows you to generate different color combinations inspired by the same upload.

Materials and inspiration

Looking for some inspiration that won’t lead you down a rabbit trail like Pinterest? Here are a couple of our favorite go-tos for industry-specific information, ideas, and resources.

Houzz.com is the gold-standard search engine for everything home-related. Thousands of photos for renovation-inspiration, along with a vast selection of materials for purchase –  from bathroom tiles to furniture to home decor. You can even find professionals in your area from more than 30 different categories!

Remodelista is an online sourcebook for home renovation design, inspiration, and resources, with hundreds of how-to articles, design blogs, and editors picks for the latest trends. This site incorporates both high and lower end design that is practical, streamlined, and uncluttered.
