7 Beautiful Botanical Spring Color Palettes We Love

From earthy meadows to bright blooms, Spring offers a variety of beautiful nature-inspired color palettes perfect for our coloring pages!

Feeling uninspired in the color palette department? Have no fear, spring is here! Here are nine Spring-inspired color palettes we can’t get enough of (regardless of the season):

1. Blue Mood

The calming shades of green, blue, and periwinkle in these Muscari (a.k.a. grape hyacinth) buds scream spring! We can see the blues working perfectly in a variety of coloring page designs, from flower petals to a springtime sky.


2. Petals with a Punch of Color

Magenta, lavender, orange, and pink make for a bright palette full of colors that complement one another perfectly. We’d love to see these hues in a field of flowers, a textile design, or even to brighten up an architecture scene.


3. Cheery Cherry Blossoms

Could anything signal spring more than cherry tree blooms? Especially when coloring florals, different shades of the same hue (check out those pinks!) make for easy blending. We think the combination of these pinks and blues could also make for a killer sunset scene!


4. Bag-o-Blooms

Oh lilac, how we love thee. Check out the range of purples in the petals and browns and greens in the stems and leaves. We’d love to see this palette used in a pattern featuring different florals, or in a fashion scene!


5. Darling Daffodils

We can’t get over the juxtaposition of the deep orange center and super pale yellow petals of these daffodils. Pair those warm colors with purple, and this color palette has plenty of contrast. (Can’t you see this color combination in a graphic tile-inspired coloring page?)


6. Deep Green and Dreary

Yes, spring is a time filled with bright blooms and baby birds, but it’s also R.A.I.N.Y. This lush green photo taken on a grey day shows off the other side of spring. Doesn’t it just make you want to curl up with a cup of tea and a good (coloring) book?


7. One-Hit Wonder

Isn’t it crazy how many different colors you can find in the petals of one type of flower? This subtle pink palette would be perfect to color your own flowery design (and practice some blending and shading while you’re at it!).


8. Moody Meadow

It’s that time of year when baby green shoots start to peek through the vast grey and brown landscape. This color palette highlights that transition perfectly, pairing pale greens with subtle blues, greys, and tans.


9. Amazing Azaleas

Azaleas make perfect cutting flowers this time of year. Sure, the petals themselves are filled with different shades of pale pink, but those hues also pair perfectly with the details of your home — blue glass vases, neutral walls, wood-grain tables.  Try the color palette inspired by this still life in your next architecture coloring page.
