Colour Schemes for Web Design

colour loversI’ve been struggling to choose a colour scheme for this site. I eventually came across http://www.colourlovers.com/ which has thousands of pre-prepared palettes ready to use for web design. Each palette has a short description and RGB and Hex identifiers for the colours.
The site also has patterns, which can be combined with the colour schemes, and individual named colours.
If you already know the basic colours you want to use then try a tool like http://colorschemedesigner.com/ which will take a single colour and suggest a number of complementary colours which will make a well balanced palette. Various standard algorithms are available for choosing complementary colours and there are many different tweaks available to customize the suggestions.
