Designing a Rainbow – Sexy Hot Colors

When it comes to mixing up a rainbow of colors for your WordPress blog or website, one of my personal favorites is Color Schemer. You can pick a color and it will show colors related and in the color theme for that color, darken or lighten it, or mix up some other features to find the color and its complimentary color companions with just a couple clicks.

Want to understand more about colors? Check out the Color Museum by Color System. It is a historical and cultural exploration through the use of color around the world. You can also go back to your childhood with Crayola. If you really want to see what the web can do, and have fun with color, check out Colors in Motion, an animated and interactive experience of color communication and color symbolism.
