Color Palette Inspiration: “Boundary” by Laurie Fisher

Color Palette Created from Laurie Fisher's Boundaries

Paintings on serenaandlilly.com are one of my favorite things to oogle. Yeah, I said oogle. That’s one of those words you can casually toss out on a blog and not feel like a total nerd, as you might in casual conversation, right?

Laurie Fisher’s painting entitled “Boundary” is a masterpiece. The balance of bold stripes on the left with a soft wash of blues is so simple yet has depths of visual interest.

I’ve created a fun color palette with web color codes that can be used however you’d like! Just copy and paste the 6-digit code anywhere on a website where you can specify a color for a perfect match. These colors can also be used in a variety of design programs, desktop publishing programs and more.

Enjoy!

Why Color Psychology Isn’t Always Applicable to Branding

Colors have feelings and evoke emotional responses but these feelings can be affected by what surrounds them.

Let’s try out a little experiment… okay?

If you have a color swatch in each of your hands and the one on the left is a soft, baby blue with a hint of lavender and the one on the right is a bold orange-yellow, which one would you say is calm?
