The Palette Generator from Big Huge Labs is coming in handy for an upcoming redecorating project.
You upload a photo and a palette of colors based on the colors in the photo is automatically generated. If you're so inclined, you can download the color swatches to use for computer-based applications.
My "inspiration piece" was a poster of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. I laid the framed poster on the floor in the living room and took a snapshot of it. The picture has a substantial amount of warm colors in it, so I was surprised by the preponderance of subdued cool colors in the palette that got generated.
However, between these ideas and the paint chips I got at the hardware store, I should be able to figure the project out.
