Finding Inspiring Color Schemes

Finding Inspiring Color Schemes


Find yourself drawn to pretty packaging or a great piece of artwork? Anything can be a source of paint color inspiration. Those charming product labels that catch your eye are created by artists and designers who’ve done the work for you by culling together colors in stunning combinations.

Pull inspiration from everyday items or product packaging that stand out. If you’re not sure where to begin, peruse the perfume counter or check out candles at your favorite home store -- there’s sure to be some designs that stand out.

Create a Palette
Before you find a look you love, grab your phone or tablet and download the SwatchDeck app. This innovative free tool acts as a digital color palette generator and file for your favorite design elements. When you find an inspiring pattern or label, simply take a photo and upload it into the interactive app. (Make sure to select Diamond Vogel under ‘Manufacturers’ for our latest and newest color options!)

Then, let the online tool do the work for you. It’ll give you a no-fuss palette with real Diamond Vogel colors inspired by the photo. Then, use the ‘save’ option and hop over to your local Diamond Vogel Service Center. So easy!

Here are some lovely spring patterns that will get you on your way to repainting a room -- or even your whole home!

Bowled Over
These charming bowls have a variety of punchy patterns and colors that work well together, especially against a stark white background. When a pattern or packaging stands out to you, pay attention to what’s behind it. Is the item stunning in front of a gray or white background? Or does a dark wood make the pattern pop? Those behind-the-scenes colors can be part of your palette, too.

Flower Power
This decorative throw pillow boasts three elements perfect for inspiring a color palette: a punchy floral pattern, a stripe of bold color, and a sandy neutral to pull it together.

The fabric’s rainbow of bold hues casts an array of color options. You could stay true to color, or pick a more pastel version of the colors. Your palette doesn't have to match your inspiration piece perfectly -- in fact, we decided to pull out the deeper hues to make our palette more versatile for a living or family room.
