Best place to find color schemas that look nice.

So, I built this beautiful website, well I know the colors are not exactly the right colors. Although it is exactly the colors of USC school. And my site is about tailgating, and specifically to a USC tailgate. But I am planning skinning later to which the user can select their school or team colors, but for general, I want nice colors and I see so many green, that I want to not use green.

So I thought there might be a great website that shows the best color schemes to use on a site and their color codes.

Google search brings up a lot, and when I look at them they give color schemes and popular ones, but typically just the colors and not which ones in the scheme to use as the foreground/background/header etc.

Like this one

What do you guys use?
