Paletton is a nifty colour scheme picker that lets you pick tasteful colour palettes that work well with each other. From the Color Scheme Designer Blog, explaining proper colour coexistence:

When designing web pages, computer applications, or house interiors, we need to find good color scheme — a set of colors producing the best impression. For every tint there are colors which it can coexist with, and which it can’t. Some combinations are uncomfortable, or disturbing, while others are more pleasant.

Experienced designers choose colors intuitively, many people can smell what colors go together well and what don’t. However, finding the good combination of colors may be sometimes long and gruelling work. The color theory makes the work easier. This tool will find set of colors you can start with, and it may facilitate your looking for the optimal color palette.
