Color inspiration architectural digest record 2

Color inspiration architectural record Of course the old magazines were in Black and White.. and I'd never cut those up anyway... but I always find it fun to look through them and look at the designs and ads!

My friend Cindee suggested that the weekly ads in the news paper from places like Target or department stores are also great sources of photo/color inspiration... what other sources will YOU USE to create your Color Inspiration Journal?
