Those of you who have read my works know that I constantly refer to my favorite little online color tool at http://wellstyled.com/tools/colorscheme2/index-en.html It is basically a color wheel, that tells you what colors match your color, in various color strategies such as dichromatic, trichromatic, and complementary styles.
Well yesterday I discovered a new color tool, on del.icio.us, that is sliughtly less useful, but a little bit more fun. It is the Name That Color, color wheel A simple enough device, it basically lets you choose any color or shade from 1500 different colors, and it will tell you the exact name of your hue.
The names themselves are apparently taken from wikipedia and the crayola website, and I can’t think of anyone I would rather have dictating the names of colors than a kids caryon company.
While this wheel may not help you to decorate your house, it will help you to understand what color your house is. It also lets you show off your savy, describing in minute details teh exact shades you used.
