www.ColourLovers.com lets you view, rate and review color palettes posted by others. There’s a whole section on color trends in various areas of design, and free tools to generate a color palette from a photo (Photocopa), create harmonious color palettes, generate a Theme for your Twitter page, and design your own seamless pattern.
It’s a great source of inspiration and ideas.
