Web 2.0 colors

Web 2.0 color palettes use white as the predominant background color to highlight large areas with soft neutrals. More vibrant colors are used sparingly to deliver a crisper feel to the page. I've come up with a few color swatches that you can use when designing your own web 2.0 sites.
