Design, when I’m the designer, isn’t my favorite thing in the world and coming up with a color scheme ranks among my least favorite things to decide on when creating a new site. I used to browse those lame color wheel things and end up frustrated with bad combo’s and lacking understanding of how to apply the colors.
If you’re sort of in the same boat as me on this, I’d suggest you check out: http://www.colourlovers.com/. One of my favorite sections is the web trends page because it shows you the color schemes of a lot of different, and important web pages. It makes it easy to find a great color scheme, and since you can see how the scheme is used, you can just copy & tweak. I’ve used this for several of my new websites as well as for face lifting some of my old ones.
Completely free. Just thought I’d share another one of my tools.
