Who Doesn't Need Help With Colors?

We are getting ready to buy a new house. Every room in the new place is that dull, off-white. So the topic of colors and patterns is constantly in the conversation at home. My wife keeps looking for samples and inspiration, and then I remembered this:

If you haven't been here, you have to go. It might waste a full day, but it is so worth it if you do any sort of web or marketing work and you need color palette help. Of course, it is also perfect if you are thinking of redecorating your house too. It helps you create color palettes based on a base color or off a photo. It lets you choose several options once you have your base selected. It even lets you manually adjust if you feel the need. In addition, people create and save their own palettes, so you have plenty to look at for ideas.

Here is another one solely based on web photos, and it only gives you 2 options with all colors in Hex format. But it works if you need something quick and easy.
