I'm not a designer, not by a long shot. So when it comes to design, I need a lot of inspiration.

For the redesign, I researched and wanted to find a cool color scheme for my website.

In my journey, I found these 5 amazing websites for color schemes, ready for you to use:

  1. Coolors
  2. Colours cafe
  3. Dribbble
  4. Pinterest
  5. Colormind

1. Coolors

My go-to color scheme website must be coolors. It's a cool website and super simple to use. The schemes on there are top-notch, and you can even search based on colors!

2. Colours cafe

I found this one doing my research and really dig the schemes on there. The website is still under construction but pretty cool to view. Already press down with your mouse for a cool gimmick!

3. Dribbble

Dribbble is a quite know design collective and not really a color scheme website, but yet it can be used like one.

There are multiple ways of exploring dribbble;

  • Search for color schemes: Result of color schemes This method gives you either some designed schemes or just websites with good schemes.

  • Search based on color: Result of pink This will give you all designs with a certain color in it. It might spark some secondary color ideas.

4. Pinterest

Pinterest can be used pretty similar to dribbble, and it might surprise you what you'll find.

I like to start with a search query like color scheme. This will give you some paint examples, as well as online schemes.

5. Colormind

Colormind is a super cool generator that uses deep learning to improve your schemes.

It's super cool for websites since it can help you decide which element should have a certain color.

It can also help to optimize your images for specific colors.
