One of the cool things about Design Seeds is that folks use Seeds color inspiration for a *variety* of projects including design, fashion, wedding planning, crafts, and home decor. the challenge for many is being able to match Design Seeds to their preferred medium. i create Seeds by individually mixing each color. because i create them digitally, i have made the HEX codes available for those interested.
to find out the HEX code … simply mouseover the color swatch you like in “see Similar Colors,” and the HEX reference will appear. you can then work in your preferred program with the HEX code, or convert it with an online converter such as WorkingWithColor.com.
WHEN IT COMES TO MATCHING DESIGN SEEDS TO PAINT COLORS, fabrics, yarns, beads, and more … I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO MATCH THE DESIRED SEEDS color TO THEIR PREFERRED BRAND “BY EYE.” TAKE YOUR SMART PHONE TO THE STORE to COMPARE THEM. if you have a printer that is decently calibrated for color, take a print out. if you are looking for a paint match, i suggest you also bring paint swatches home with you and view them in your home lighting and compare them to Design Seeds on your computer.
the Design Seeds Color Almanac (available as a PDF or ebook) also includes HEX codes for all colors in the book.
