Default color inspiration

I have been thinking a lot about Vermeer lately, and at the same time trying to come up with a color scheme for a web site. So I decided to try to put the two thoughts together.

Decided to go looking for Vermeer images on the web. Many of the Vermeers are in poor shape, and so are the photos of them. But this is for the web, where color is whatever you can approximate, right? So I found a very nice site, Paintings of Vermeer, with large images of many of the paintings.

Mainly so I can see how these look (as they do not exactly hang together at this point), I am attaching a GIF of my samplings. (Hmmm. How bizarre. They were on a transparent background in the .ai file, and I saved the image as a .gif. Where did the black borders come from, I wonder. Some new feature of Illustrator CS2? Have to see if I can fix that later.)
