Hi joonR,
Look at the color.scale and smoothColors functions in the plotrix 
package. The former translates numeric values into colors along an 
arbitrary color dimension and the latter allows the user to define a 
series of colors between an arbitrary number of color anchors. You might 
also want to look at the colourschemes package.
