    No bedroom is more lovingly planned than the baby's nursery. Every parent wants the youngest member of the family to feel safe and happy in a bedroom that is colorful and interesting. Choosing the perfect color palette for your baby’s room depends on several factors. For some parents, continuity is important, and if the rest of the house is traditional, they want the nursery to echo that theme. On the other hand, other parents like incorporating variety into their decorating style and try to match individual rooms to the personality of the occupant. Additional considerations include the size of the room, the natural lighting available, the gender of the baby and special features such as murals or architecture.

    One of the first things to consider is you should pick a natural color scheme. If you pick colors that are too bright or too fake, people might get offended and walk off from your site. Natural colors that are warm to the eyes will help a great lot.

    When you use colors, make sure you use a maximum of 3 colors consistently throughout the entire website. Do not make your website a rainbow, a site full of confusing and distracting colors. Make sure the colors you've chosen are well within the purpose of your site.

    The Internet is an almost inexhaustible source of applications and sites and given the current trend the future will bring a steady growth both in numbers but also in importance. The winner of this avalanche of possibilities is definitely the Internet user who will decide who will thrive and who will require a rethinking or changing of strategy. One of the most important factors in attracting customers is the color; its eye-catching power can convert visitors into regular users or customers. Choosing a color scheme for a site is not easy, this being emphasized by the importance of color in the whole ensemble. Another advantage in choosing the right color layout is the power of suggestion, vision is color dominated, and in the absence of writing it will take certain meanings.

    Marketing and psychological research that studies how certain colors and color schemes appeal to consumers in different ways have now become fairly mainstream for many different types of businesses. When it comes to the web, these kinds of considerations are even more important for businesses who want to get the most out of their investment. Most web designers and graphic designers are aware of the particular methods for choosing a color scheme and they know what colors work well together. However, for the average person looking to create their own website, choosing colors can sometimes be daunting.

    This is a hugely debatable question, but a good number of designersrecommend using only 3 main colors on your website. The more colors you use, the harder it becomes to keep them all in harmony and create a balanced, consistent look for your site.

    As a starting point, you could try following the 60 – 30 – 10 Rule, which has been used by interior and fashion designers for many years and works equally well in web design.

    1. Does your website need to sync with an existing color scheme? This is often the case for business sites that need to reflect the branding that the company already uses.
    2. What’s the purpose of the website? If the aim is to sell something, the colors you choose will need to inspire the right kind of emotion in people. Check out this article on color psychology in marketing for further info.
    3. What kind of photos and graphics will you incorporate into the site? It’s important that your color scheme matches your images, and vice versa. Photos can actually be a great source of inspiration when it comes to choosing colors for your site.

    I know very well choosing a right  colors is one of the most difficult tasks but your goals are clear whatever you choose it can entice the visitor to engage in the goal of your site. In my personal point of view the best and effective one is dark blue for your website background.
