Favorite colors for a website

Postby bliss » Sun Jul 29, 2012 6:04 pm

Every designer and every webmaster prefers to stick with similar colors for their sites. Some prefer light themes, other prefers dark themes. What colors do you use in most of your websites?

Blue and white has been my favorite for a while. I like navy blue a lot, and always try to mix it up with some other tones of blue to make it look good.

Heya :)

I really like to use grey/light grey for my background textures (carbon fibre), and mostly blue/sky blue/orange/neon orange for my website. Orange looks really nice with some shades of blue, so I use orange and light orange for most of my links.
Black/Dark Grey/Grey/Dark Red/Red are also nice colors. :)
Sincerely,
D. Berletta

blue and orange are so overused in design, I try to go with any colours except those. I like to use pastel colours, which lets you use colours that would clash more if they were stronger shades, like green and pinkish red.

In my office my boss always advises me to use light colors to our websites.

Good colour theme will help you to make attractive site and its also helps to attract the visitor. Different people like to use different colour theme for their site. I also like to use blue and white colour theme for my site and also prefer to use light colour theme.

We stick with our corporate color in our website, which is white and blue, and our latest website revamp is a minimalistic parallax scrolling theme.

However, when designing, we do not stick with our favorite colors. Instead, we stick to what our clients want, to their color scheme, or at least we give them several concepts wherein they can decide.

if client wants website more attractive manner simply I prefer dark colors as a base color but base color differs based on requirement like dark grey or dark blue like that otherwise if he/she prefers any specific companies theme color then i will go ahead with given color, but from my point of view dark colors gives more attract to websites that light colors, but if you gives more important to text-contents prefer light colors.
