For painting a room, do you go by your instincts or take some inspiration from somewhere like clothes or nature, etc.?
For me it had always been more of instinct but off late i have started taking nature as an inspiration for interior palettes too. Because nature never goes wrong! whatever the combination maybe:)

Being an Interior Designer, I am painting rooms all the time! For the most part my inspiration comes from the latest trends in design especially whats hot in fabrics.
Often I will take a cue from what is in someones closet as that it typically what they feel good surrounding themselves with.
So many people have hardwood floors these days making rugs a necessity. These Beautiful works of art become fabulous color palettes to build a room around particularly antique Persian rugs. This is my personal favorite way to build a room.

I will definitely say, this would be SKY. The mixture and the shade, you will find in the sky, will never get anywhere. I love to color my interior from sky shade.

The colors that inspire me come from my soul. It's all about the way I feel.

Inspiration seems to come from all sorts of weird and wonderful places. We love the way you have matched up the photos with your colour splashes. The beach example works particularly well.

I guess our default strategy now is ctrl+a, ctrl+c on a comment just in case we lose it without it being posted. Last week I had to re-write a comment 3 times before I learned. :P

My one wish through being patient while the bugs are worked out and the spammers run off is that management would make a short statement.

Definitely.

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.
