How to Find Simple, Personalized Color Palettes

I am honestly not great at picking out color combos that look good together, but at the same time, I do know what I like (lots of blues & greens 😊).

I came across an awesome tool called Khroma that helps you narrow the color options down.

Khroma 🌈

Khroma is an AI tool that helps you find simple, personalized color combinations. By selecting 50 (yes, 50) of your favorite colors, you train Khroma on essentially what you like and don't like.

After calculating, it produces an infinite scroll of color combinations or palettes tailored to your preferences.

If you don't like your results, you can always edit your colors.

You can even select "favorites" of your color combinations and palettes.

Features ⭐

In additional to text/background color combos, you can also get recommendation for the following styles:

Considerations 🤔

  • After generating your infinite scroll, you might be overwhelmed with options. I recommend immediately spending a couple minutes selecting your favorites, and then bookmarking the favorites page to come back to!

  • Note Khroma uses local storage rather than relying on logins. You preferences will be saved on only your current browser on your current device.

✨ TL;DR: Use Khroma to get simple, personalized color combinations based on your actual color preferences.
