20 Wonderfully Warm Designs

By / Oct 24, 2008 / Inspiration

Warm colors are known to create excitement and even anger. Shades of orange, yellow, and brown can bring on cheerful thoughts while their cool counter parts such as greens and blues have a calming effect. Warm colors even appear larger than cool colors. That’s why a web design with a well selected warm color palette can have a powerful effect.

Here is a showcase of twenty beautiful sites that have an overall warm feel.

    great webdesigns. And Robert, is almost natural that you learn a server side language, like ASP or PHP.

    I can’t believe you did not include valuedstandards.com in this list! :-)

    But seriously, I love the warm colorschemes. Easy on the eyes, feels ‘organic’, cozy even, and makes me want to spend more time on a site. It is no wonder many sites use organic patterns and imagery (such as wood), works really well. ++ for Matt Dempsey and Carolina Jesus.
