I recently dove into the wonderful world of design, and adding color to my website. I'm building a dark website, which has a number of design challenges from the start, and I noticed I liked my design (what I have thus far), but that it was greatly lacking color. I've come up with a palette I like, and am trying to distribute the colors throughout my site as best I can. The biggest place I'm getting stuck on, is what color to have my body text for articles, and primary blocks of text. A few elements are not correctly colored, so if it looks way out of place, ignore it. What I have so far:
Headers: Bright orange.
Links: lighter orange:
Link Hover: Light Purple.
Body Text: Lighter orange / light blue / off palette grey (#d8d8c0, used before I added color)
Here is my palette - http://paletton.com/#uid=70K0u0kiXw090QfepG3mSsvr6oa
All in all, do you like the color scheme? Which color, if either, works best for the body text?
I suggest this site to check the color contrast you are using on your site - http://snook.ca/technical/colour_contrast/colour.html
