Color Addict

Adobe Kuler is a great place to feed my color addiction.
People come up with great color combinations that I would never think of. It's very inspirational for me as I think about paintings (or combining clothes I would have never put together on my own... I'm very very conservative when it comes to color combinations in clothing).

Here are a few examples.

Tell Me I'm Pretty by CivilSumo

Maybe looking at this site more frequently will help me be more adventurous in my fashion choices.

Maybe.

I like the top one. I mostly branch out with color in the summer. Different t-shirts (I'm so adventurous.) In the winter--black, grays and browns. I've been accused by my girls of dressing like death. Nice. I should follow your lead. Maybe.

I love it!
I used to have a favorite color until I started scrapbooking a few years ago and now I just can't choose. I have become a little more adventurous (very slightly) with my clothing but nowhere near where I would like to be. I always see people and say, "I could never pull that look off." but I know that most of us could if we actually tried it.

I bet that's where the people on HGTV go to get their wacko color schemes, because it keeps everything together. GENIUS! Now I can be a designer too!!!

I may have to check that site out to give me some courage with painting the new wall we will have in our living room.

mommyofthree: The top one is my favorite, too. And as far as branching out in winter, for me it's all about the accessories (bags, earrings, shoes are my big go-to choices) because you can be adventurous with color and not blow a bunch of money. Well, unless you buy expensive accessories. I'm more of a Target/Kohl's/Etsy girl, so I often find cheap AND cute "adventure" pieces.

scrap chair potato: I totally agree. Whenever I try an outfit that I think is a little "out there" I always get a lot of compliments. I think, for me at least, it's more about being willing to make a 'bad' adventurous choice every once in a while.

ames: I bet you're right... and if not, they should! You're already so great with color, you hardly need it, but I think it can provide inspiration for anyone. I would totally let you design my house. :)

gma dibb: That's a great idea! This way you don't have to make dozens of trips to Home Depot to get paint chips (or am I the only one who obsessively does that when I decide to paint??)
