From Palette to Project: Color Theory in Practice

Are there any graphic designers out there who can speak about how they're using color in their designs in a deliberate, thoughtful manner? Who can talk about what choices they're making and why? In particular, I'm interested in hearing from designers who are utilizing either color theory/relationships or color palette tools such as Adobe's Kuler or Live Color and applying those palettes in their work--with the emphasis on the application side of things and how that informs their usage of these tools.

For example, it's one thing to make a lovely set of 5 swatches, but what does it mean? Why 5? And what makes one palette more successful than another? Also, once a palette is established, what kind of alterations are being made, if any, in translating it into a design?
