Coworking in the Fall – This month we designed an interior sign for The Candy Factory, the coworking space we run our business from and also manage. This sign (or interior art) took up an entire wall and pulled key words from the Candy Factory Mission.  Gather, Imagine, Create, Thrive and Cowork.  Color was key, we needed this sign to marry well with the other colors found in this creative space. This color palette reflects these colors including colors found in the pillows, tables, walls and cement. ~ enjoy

About the sweet core Color Inspiration Project Color plays such an important role when it comes to design. When helping to brand a client we spend a good bit of our discovery process reviewing colors and how they affect us, how we interact with color and how those colors are seen in the environment around us. The color inspiration project is a fun side project for the creative team here at the sweet core. We take images of colors that speak to us, colors that are seen in everyday life and create interesting and usable color palettes from them.  Hope you enjoy and feel free to use any of the color palettes we create. We’d love to see what you come up with.

 

We’re excited to announce the launch of the Inglenook Creative website!

Inglenook is a new Interior Design Collective located on Columbia Ave here in Lancaster. We had the pleasure of working with their amazing team on naming, branding and web development, creating a brand and website that not only looked great but helped Inglenook reach both potential members and clients looking for design services, workshops etc.

Be sure to check them out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and welcome to the internet and Lancaster Inglenook!

Color Inspiration 6 focuses on the beauty found in nature. The deep reds work really well with the brighter pinks and greens as can be seen in this image taken in my backyard of a rose blooming. I love these colors, they are bright and joyful and they yell Spring! ~ Anne

Color Inspiration 5 | the sweet core

Color Inspiration 5 is brought to you by Katie while on vacation in Florida! Water is the theme here, how many blues and greens are in this image, not to mention the light reflecting off the water. This simple image is full of amazing colors that could be pulled to make fun and inviting color palettes. This palette shown here is calming and we love how the colors interact with each other.

Color Inspiration 4 | the sweet core
As the weather gets nicer we start venturing out to our gardens to find colors that inspired today’s Color Inspiration: the dark and light colors of the earth, the still bare branches on the trees. Slowly the earth is blooming, but there is something calming about these colors of a Fall gone by that will now make way for Spring.  This earthy color palette reminds me of the dirt, the branches yet of renewal as well. See if you can find where the color was pulled from in the picture.  By separating colors and placing them beside each other we tend to notice colors we might not have otherwise. So look closely to see the burnt orange; while it’s not a major part of this image, it is a powerful highlight. ~ Enjoy

It’s amazing the colors found in one image. We pull just several out of millions but just think what colors this image could offer up. We feel this selection offers a nice muted but striking color combo.  A very usable selection for that next Spring project!

Looking for a color palette with a dark base and pops of color? This color combo does the job. With a dark blue (almost black) base the green and yellow pops off the background.
