Creating a Cohesive Color Palette

Creating a Cohesive Color Palette

A closer look at our Kindred Collection color palette and how creating a cohesive color palette is the key to print-mixing. 

When founder, Amy Weisberg, set out to design like.leigh's debut collection, one of the very first creative processes included creating a color palette.

In building a cohesive color palette, one the first, and quite possibly most important steps, is to dive into trend research. It is important to be aware of market trends and directions. From there, it becomes easier to pull inspiration. This can come in many forms: scrap materials, natural elements, artwork, photos, or even travel. Having these various inspiration resources helps to create mood boards to better understand the overall direction.

After a cohesive palette is pieced together with the help of mood boards, painting is an essential next step. Being able to put a paintbrush to paper is a key part of the process. Exploring colors through color mixing allows the colors to truly come to life. After various shades and compositions are explored, final colors are chosen and standards can be sent to our screen-printer.

A cohesive color palette can help different patterns work together more easily. We love seeing how different designers use different color pairings to achieve varying design aesthetics. Whether its modern neutral, cool coastal, or earthy boho, our colorways work in a variety of different spaces.

We can't wait to see what colors you pair together. Not sure where to start? Shop our sample kit to get inspired.
