Help me get my colors done.

Where can I search for photos by color rather than by subject?

I purchased a new quilt and a piece of art (from Target!) that I love, and I want to find more artwork that I can print out on my photo printer or order if possible.

How can I coordinate my search with the colors in that picture? I don't really care what the art depicts or what style it employs (painting, print, photo, memorabilia, etc.), I just want the colors to somehow coordinate.

Best answer: Multicolor Search Lab is what you're looking for if you want photos.

Similarly, there's the color search on (a stock photo site.)

I believe Flickr has a color search.

(unofficial) Flickr color search.

Nothing to add, except wow that Multicolor site is astonishing. Very cool, thanks for asking this!
