One of my favorite parts of textile design work is making inspiration/mood boards. I love to collect beautiful images that appeal to me on a gut level without having to really think of the how or why. Usually, when you put them all together, you will discover a common thread or a theme will emerge. And though it's tedious, I actually enjoy creating/matching color palettes drawn from certain inspirations. It's kind of a meditative act in a weird way. So I was so excited to come across the Color Collective blog, which was created as a color resource for designers. Lauren has incredible taste. Definitely going to the top of my inspiration blog list.
