20 Multi-Color Images to Inspire Color at Home

Design*Sponge DSCOLOR Favorites
When one color palette just won’t do, sometimes you have to create a whole new category. Last month’s DS Hashtag Challenge was all about COLOR and got the largest number of entries we’ve seen so far- almost 4,000 of you entered photos in all shades of the rainbow. Over the past few weeks I’ve shared our favorites in the red/pink/orange family and blue/green/purple range as well. But I was holding on to 20 extra photos that didn’t quite fit in either category because they were so bright and multi-colored. So today I’m sharing 20 beautiful photos from DS readers that are bound to inspire a new coat of paint, wallpaper choices or any other color decision you could need to make at home. What I love most about these photos is that so many of them are from the natural world. Flowers and seashells provide such a wide range of colors and it was so nice to see people look up, down and all around them to find color inspiration. Thanks so much to everyone who entered- and stay tuned for a new hashtag challenge this week! xo, grace
