Introduction

With the advent of css, it is trivially easy to change the entire colour scheme of a website. It makes it even more embarrassing if your website’s colours don’t coordinate well. Creating a pleasing colour scheme requires an artistic skill I don’t have, though I think I know a good one when I see one.

I thought I would start collecting colour schemes for the web authoring community. If you have some colour schemes that you are willing to share, please email them to me. All you need do is list the hex colour numbers you think go well together, ordering dark to light. Give your colour scheme a name. If you want to save me some work, put them in the same HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) table form as those below.

The Schemes

Feel free to use any of these colour schemes in your web pages without credit.

How To Collect Colour Schemes

You can collect colour schemes by buying a copy of PaintShop Pro X6. Then you can take a screen snapshot of any application or browser display, and then use the eyedropper tool to sample the colour. If you open the colour wheel, you will see the corresponding HTML hex number displayed where you can cut and paste it.

You can sample photos of fabrics, house interiors, nature, etc. to collect a pleasing scheme. You can capture images with a digital camera or with a scanner. As far as I know, doing this does not violate any copyrights. Using other people’s names for your colour schemes might get you in trouble though.

One trick I use on my home page is to use an image from nature. I select a typical foreground and background colour from the image to use on the rest of the page. You tend to get more muted conservative colour schemes this way.

Mindprod Colour Scheme

Here are all the named colours used on the mindprod.com website, not all on the same page though! Some of these colours are quite close and should be collapsed into one. Further, they should be tweaked to blend together better. I tend to focus on one colour at a time, tweaking it until it seems to speak its purpose, often to disparage something. These colours are used in style sheets, in JDisplay program listings and in various computer programs.
