Even with the general rule of using a base, accent and a neutral color for your palette, choosing the colors is mostly a matter of intuition and experience.
Don't worry, I have you covered - check out the top five resources and choosing your perfect color palette will be a breeze.

PS: Don't forget to check the bonus link!


The super fast and super fun color schemes generator. Gamification for the win. You can play for hours or just pick the first color scheme.


Thousands of pre-made color palettes. Each appealing palette consists of four matching colors ready to use.
