Choosing The Right Color Scheme For Your Website

The color scheme you chose will probably be greatly influenced by your audience but it also depends on what meaning and emotions you want your website to be associated with. The meaning of certain colors will also vary depending on the country and culture. For example, the color red usually means passion and leadership for North American people, but it can mean mourning and grief in South Africa.

  • White: pure, neutral, clean
  • Black: classy, elegance, power, mystery
  • Grey: humility, pessimism, balance, formality
  • Red: passion, fire, strength, leadership, love
  • Green: environment, wealth, youth, greed, creative
  • Blue: peace, harmony, conservative, cold
  • Purple: royalty, envy, spirituality, pride
  • Orange: enthusiasm, energy, happiness
  • Yellow: gold, joy, optimism, weakness, light
  • Brown/Beige: Earth, natural, friendliness, rustic
  • Pink: love, gratitude, health, joy, young

Needless to say you should do a lot of research before deciding on the color scheme you will use. Make sure you research existing websites in your niche but don’t forgot that sometimes thinking a little outside the box can be a good thing.
