    can anyone suggest a complimentary color selection to match the color on the link?

    Try a darker blue or purple -- they usually work well with light yellow to me. It's also dependent on what look you're going for, too.

    Personally, I like a nice green, quite dark, but low green saturation...kinda subtle.

    Steelsun...that one is the BEST color resourc esite that I've seen yet. Extremely thorough and the best selection of contrating and complimentary colors of any other color-suggestor" site I've seen.

    Glad you find it as useful as I do.
    And I found it by accident!

    I have a few other color schemers bookmarked (including one in my link bar, and this new one also there) and was searching for hardcopy color schemers to be able to take with a client. Found some swatch books, a few color cards, and a nice looking color wheel (that I might end up ordering), and also the above site.

    Don't you just love trying links just to see where they go?

    Here's a color wheel product I am tempted to buy:
    http://www.colorwheelco.com/mivastor...duct_Code=9101

    If the link does not work due to it's length, just go to http://www.colorwheelco.com/ and click on the "Web Color Wheel"

    A few other nice products there also.

    Here's another site I just found: http://pionet.net/~jzeman/tips/colors/index.html

    Great thing to use for clients to select a background or general color.
