Picture This: Instagram Inspiration

Often when starting a new design or project, one of the biggest challenges is coming up with a color scheme. Sometimes it's not that big of a deal to go through a hundred different colors, if you're working on the computer for example. But if you're painting a wall or piece of furniture, you want it to be a color you will love day after day for years to come! 
Yes, there are countless color templates on websites, Pinterest, or in books that you could turn to for ideas. But why not pull colors from images you're already in love with? 
Like from your INSTAGRAM! #genius!
You already have an incomprehensible attachment to those perfectly filtered snapshots, so put them to some use! I have found that browsing through my photo feed can provide me with all of the beautiful swatch satisfaction I crave. 

Below are a dozen examples of beautifully coordinated color combinations pulled together from my Instagram photos:
So the next time you're stumped about what color to paint a room, what shirt would look great with those killer purple jeans, or what theme to make your next birthday party, look no further than that truly addicting little app on your phone. #coloryourworld #everydayinspiration  #hashtaghashtaghashtag ...sorry I'll stop now :)
