    complementing color

    I got the latest tweets widget on my page and I am trying to figure out what color complements best the dark blue for the @username?

    http://www.polarpos.com/features/

    Currently the @username color is #AAA, but it doesn't look good with the white text. Can anyone give any suggestions?

    In my opinion, the background should be set to something closer to white. The contrast is so heavy, it looks like the most important element on the page, drawing my eye away from the "features", which IS the most important part of the page. With that down, light blue (close to your breadcrumb links) for the @username.

    I agree with cgCody ... that blue is too dark.I'd say make it a light shade a gray.
