I think U prefer creating a new one. I tried using a palette as you see above - but I deleted it - because my walls are actually very white, so I thought it's either not white or grey enough...

I love the 1st dark blue example where the red clashes with the blue to make other colours. That one is the first option they propose.
btw, I'd wouldn't mind DNA11 scarfs! bed covers... shower curtains! =D
