Don't forget that certain colors can bring about certain emotions:
Red is the color for passion, lust, love, strength and power. It stimulates metabolism, appetite and masculinity. In web design it can be used to make an image look larger and closer but using this color in large areas should be avoided. Combinations of Red and Green or Blue and Red are not recommended because both wears out the eyes.
Romance, friendship, femininity and energy are some of the words often associated with the color Pink. On the other hand, Orange gives a sense of warmth, balance, vibrancy and intensity. In web design, it is useful for highlighting key elements.
Black signifies power, elegance, evil, sadness and fear. It adds mystery to a website but can also give a depressing or heavy feeling. This color is recommended for websites catering to art and photography since it complements other colors. The opposite of Black is White, it represents purity, simplicity, cleanliness, light, positivity and everything good. Similar to black choosing white as a site's background is highly advisable because it also highlights other color.
Gray often communicates gloominess and old age while Silver is sleek and modern. A combination of Silver and other color can be used to create a high-tech look. The color Blue is associated with water and gives a calming effect. It is also the color of technology. Green represents nature, money, health and harmony. It is easy on the eyes and useful for sites with natural products.
Lastly, Yellow signifies intelligence, happiness, glory and hope. The advantages of using this color are it stimulates mental activity and gets attention. Designers should be careful in dealing with this color because wrong or overuse of such can promote anxiety.
