This question already has an answer here:

I'm from programmer background.

I would like to mimic the color scheme used in most Google Android app such as GMail, Google Analytic, to use them in my own app.

Those color looks

  • Elegant
  • Harmony
  • Comfortable

I was wondering, usually, for a designer, how does they generate such color scheme?

I usually go for pastel colors. Especially with the new "flat craze."
For me I find a color I want; red, blue, orange, then null it down and make it look faded. Or I brighten it up. Depends really. Everyone does things differently.
