Color scheme

Yesterday, my wife told me the colors of my newly-designed website were dull and boring. The banner and menu had a gray background, with white text. I thought it looked nice and minimalist, but she assured me it looked about as attractive as a cement brick. She picked a nice blue from my color chart and I altered all the grays.

By this morning, the blue was annoying the hell out of me. My old website was based predominantly around three colors; a biscuity-yellow, a dash of maroon and some red. I had grown rather fond of them, so I banished the blue and went back to the old colors. My wife may not be all that pleased about it but I am much happier.
