37 Color Palettes Inspired by Japan

Japan is a culture of centuries-old, strict traditions that govern almost everything, so it’s no surprise to learn they’ve also developed a collection of traditional colors, known as dentouiro 伝統色でんとういろ. (source)

During our recent travels, Japan’s landscapes, fabrics, architecture and people inspired us to create some color palettes of our own. Each of these 36 photos from Japan tells a travel story – and has inspired its own unique color palette. Use these color ways to start planning your wall colors, your decor, your outfit or any color scheme.
