To design a site the designer chooses a collection of shades which is known as the colour scheme of the site. Some people call them colour palettes. Primary and secondary are the 2 colour sets that come under the colour palettes. Among these 2 sets, the dominant shades are the primary shades. The shades used in the menu, logo and background are the primary shades.
Here are the 5 tips that will help you in choosing a stunning website colour scheme.
1.Gather knowledge about the colour wheel – The colour wheel has 3 groups of shades which are:
· Primary shade
· Secondary shade

Loyalty and peace are shown by blue shade whereas strength and urgency are shown by red shade.
3.Understand the psychology of shades – When for triggering emotions and feelings in the visitors for a particular thing you make the use of shades then this comes under the psychology of shades.
