Have you ever been working on something with a scheme and wished there was a way to search for images by color? Well now one database allows you to do just that. The National Design Museum belonging to the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt has built a database where roughly 55% of their collection is browse-able by the colors that make up each piece. Their collection spans thirty centuries of historic and contemporary design and includes really unique and precious pieces. The database, in beta, currently features a color spectrum from which you can select any color you wish. Clicking on your choice brings up all the images that contain that color so that you can browse through easily. Its a good way to get inspired or just kill some time. Give it a try at http://collection.cooperhewitt.org/
