I am Jessica Colaluca, a creator of Design Seeds. A color and inspiration site, Design Seeds celebrate the colors found in nature and the aesthetic of purposeful living.

Little did I know what a universal passion my love for color was. Design Seeds has become my full-time job, and a passion project that gratefully only continues to grow. Over the years, folks have written me and shared what Design Seeds mean to them and how they are inspired. Designers, artists, crafters, people planning weddings, home decorating, and more have found inspiration in Design Seeds palettes. I have also received very touching and personal emails from those in emotionally trying times who find a breath of happiness in immersing themselves in the inspiration. Folks in remission have told me they “feel” color more intensely than before chemo, and Design Seeds have a therapeutic effect on them.

Since January 2015, I have begun accepting photo submissions for Design Seeds, and the creative synergy of the growing community has been incredible. Talented folks from around the world share their photos via Instagram using the SeedsColor hashtag.

The beautiful words of the following Indian Proverb best express the ethos of Design Seeds – “All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.”
