For something unexpected, try out pastels in your next design. They can be soft, muted, clean—a nice way to warm up stark photography or give a website or app a friendlier feel.
From buildings coated with mint-green paint, to aquamarine oceans, these pastel-rich photographs are a great source for fresh color palette inspiration.
