Chess Board Color Schemes

If you are new to, well, me, you may not know that I'm quite passionate about chess board aesthetics.  In an earlier post I detailed how I made my own board with colors I chose because the combination of blue and gray on a chess board is the most pleasing to me.  I have a particular set of preferences for light square/dark square combinations.  I suspect most people do, too, they just may not spend as much time thinking about it as I do.

On other blogging sites, I have posted some of my favorite color schemes for others to use.  It's time for another one of those.  These color schemes are actually not exactly in my wheelhouse, but they are definitely suitable, and I find them attractive.  I'm posting them here so that others can either use them or base their own color combinations off of these ideas.
