I took this photo with my iPhone outside of the hotel we were staying in while visiting the Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina. The yellow and pink of the flowers caught my eye, mostly because it's mid-October and the flowers were still so lively.
Once I got in the car (my husband was driving) I took the photo into Adobe Kuler to create a basic color pallet and finalized it in Adobe Photoshop by matching it with the Pantone Solid Coated book. So here it is, a little color inspiration from Asheville.
Adobe Kuler is a program that I will reference frequently in my Color Scheming posts and one that I use almost daily as part of my workflow. If you'd like to know what the heck it is and how it works here's a video tutorial from Lynda.com.
