Cool (And Free!) Things The Internet is Doing

1. Watercolor Maps from Stamen Design

The images you can create with this website are so incredibly beautiful. Enter an address (scroll down to the Watercolor link to create a map like the one below), generate an image, and behold subtle beauty you never knew existed in your hometown (or favorite travel spot, or a city you want to visit, etc.)

The city where I was raised. Isn't it purty?

2. Color Finder from DeGraeve

Insert a URL and this tool generates a color palette from the image. Great for decorating around an inspiration photo or piece of artwork. For example, I love the tones in this photo, which I found on Pinterest, for a bedroom:


3. Helping Guys Dress Better from BuzzFeed

I love BuzzFeed. If you haven’t been over there, do yourself a favor (as long as you’re not at work right now) and peruse their lists. I’ll wait here.

Ok, did you find this one? It’s a fantastic run-down of how stylish, modern men should dress. You can bet I’ll be bringing this up next time I can talk Dr. O into doing some shopping!

Step 1: Make sure your suit fits.

4. Free Printable Art from Feed Your Soul

While it looks like this site hasn’t been updated in a couple of years, the existing library of free art prints available for download is quite extensive. The Feed Your Soul: Free Art Project featured a free, high-quality image for download every month with the aim of spreading art love. I especially like this one by Marcy Davy:

5. Free Font Collections curated by A Subtle Revelry

I know, I know. These are rampant. But I really love the collections on A Subtle Revelry—and as far as I can tell all of the links actually work, which is more than I can say about some free font lists I’ve seen lately.
