130 Retro Color Palettes

130 Retro Color Palettes


Here's some inspiration influenced from colors past. Selected from the COLOURlovers' group Retro (though I only made it about half way through the group's collection before I had more than enough great palettes to share).

Let's go back in time for inspiration. A faded Polaroid photo from your childhood, a French movie, a vintage dress, architecture, music or whatever you can think of from the last century that you associate with the word. Give us your inspired palette! :-)
