You guys know how obsessed I am with color palettes! How is it that I just discovered the PANTONE Studio app? You can build color palettes of up to five colors, by selecting from color guides, extracting colors from photos and images (like I've done here just by walking around the house with the app open), searching by color number, and by interacting with other custom Pantone palettes. I think this is a really fun tool for amateur and pro designers, quilters, interior designers, almost anyone who uses and LOVES color, fabric, paper, etc.
What is Pantone? (Source: http://www.colorguides.net/pantone.html)
Pantone is a standardized color matching system, utilizing the Pantone numbering system for identifying colors. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all reference a Pantone numbered color, making sure colors match without direct contact with one another. The most commonly referenced colors are in the Pantone solids palette. The Pantone Solid palette consists of 1,114 colors, identified by three or four digit numbers, followed by a C, U, Or M suffix.. Originally designed for the graphics industry, the pantone solids palette is now used by a wide range of industries, and is the most commonly used palette.
