    what kind of colours you after? blue(s), Red(s), yellow(s)... you might want to take a look around wowwebdesigns or coolhomepages(yuck) and see if theres any that grab your attention.

    Visibone does not have sites, but actual colors you can play around with. I've personally found this helpful in times past.

    thanks guys for those helpful replies...

    platinum your site looks really clean i quite fancy something like that...

    swimm's crisp and clean thread looks great... i'll be going thru it...

    i've also tried looking at the coolhomepages one before but there's just too many to pore thru and i'm on really narrow-band at that ...

    I used white and a silvery grey for the last site I designed. I think the key is plenty of white space around everything.
