Isolated colors may look beautiful but in combination with other colors may look muddy, or ‘change’ their main hue altogether. If you want to avoid surprises, try ColorCombos’ combotester. You get to pick up to four colors either by hex code, or through a visual pop-up; the combotester then lets you test the colors in any sequence. The large size swatches make it easy to get a feel for which colors look right next to one another and makes this a useful website tool for anyone who works with color. You can also choose from some color presets and change options like adding text, or having combotester get complementary colors for you.
