Found: Subdued Kate Spade NY Inspired Palette

I really like the colors in Kate Spade NY's Spring/Summer 2011 campaign. What I'm not so sure about is whether I could carry off a look in those colors.

The more I thought about the Bryce Dallas Howard print ad, the more I began noticing the colors around the house. In the kitchen. On our bookshelves. In the linen closet. And finally, in my closet. (The grocery bags were intentional, the other items were not.)
I generated a complementary palette that was a little more subdued at (you can see the entire photo on Flickr). Two of the colors in this subdued palette remind me of my aubergine and butterscotch sandals that I just acquired. Now that's a color scheme I know I can pull off.

Do you tweak color palettes until you find one that works for you?
What tools do you use?
