Just click the palette icon (enter image description here) next to the current color:

Then you can pick a color from your screen

Hi Dan Lee! Thank you very much... –  user1882503 Dec 13 '12 at 14:21

Per this tutorial: http://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/webhelp/changing-color-values-in-style-sheets.html

  1. Open the desired style sheet for editing.
  2. Type color:, and then press Ctrl+Space.
  3. Select the desired color value from the suggestion list, or choose color... to pick a custom one.

Personally I prefer to use this site: http://www.colorhexa.com/

It gives a lot of handy tools for generating a scheme and not just picking a colour straight out

@user1882503 Check out the much cooler colorschemedesigner.com. By the way, why do you accept the answer, even if it does not answer your actual question? (Which my answer does) –  Dan Lee Dec 13 '12 at 14:12
