First, this is a great idea asking followers for recommendations. Many times our wall gets stale with the same old stuff and there is nothing like finding something new and exciting. Enter, Colorschemer:

So, every hour this "bot" produces an image comprised of three colors that it thinks compliment each other. Genius! I find this fascinating, engaging and inspirational.

Combining a few of them into one image also brings about inspiration. I combined the three images above to create this gorgeous palette below. I love how these colors work together!
