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 five unique 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 are top-notch, and you can even search based on colors!

2. Colours cafe

I found this one doing my research and 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 well-known design collective and not a color scheme website, 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 or just websites with good schemes.

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

4. Pinterest

Pinterest can be similar to dribbble, and what you’ll find might surprise you.

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 specific color.

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