I think color can be overwhelming. Consequently, my wardrobe has difficulty expanding beyond black and white and my house is painted a nice shade of dark taupe - everywhere. Color becomes even more confusing when I'm staring at my computer screen wanting to design something fantastic. Luckily, I discovered COLOURlovers. It's a website full of colors, patterns and ideas. Plus you can download the color swatches directly into programs like Illustrator. It's a great creative resource!
