    Travel website color scheme?

    Hi,

    I was wondering what color scheme you lot think will suit a travel related site? I was thinking light blue/bright pink but now I am not sure. Black, grey and white looks OK but I feel that this maybe wrong for the type of site. Which got me thinking what did you guys think??

    The website covers all seasons of travel and I would like one scheme for the entire site.

    Thanks for the help!

    Al

    Hi -
    Yeah, I don't think tropical or monotone would be good.

    But, you could use any earth tones [green - blue - rusty - tan - grey - ochre]
    especially if they are more unusual - then have a few images carry out the rest of your themes: adventure - relaxation - culture - the sea, etc.

    There are a gaggle [flock, bunch?] of web-based tools for choosing colors, too
    as I'm sure others will link here for you: just make the first tone you begin with
    is the one that really matters! [Or, search for "color picker/schemer/chooser"...]

    Good luck,
