Namowal, I tried your suggestion and made the color palette above from the colors in the photo below.
Your comment was such a coincidence. In desperation I had tried Kuler earlier in the day to create a color palette––and I ended up feeling like that one palette helped my work immeasurably. (I hope I'll feel the same tomorrow!)
If you're using Illustrator you can use Kuler straight from within the program––otherwise, you can easily import the palettes you create from Kuler into other programs.
