50 Web Sites with Pastel/Washed-Out Color Schemes


Lately we have see a lot of sites adopting bold and brightish colors, other sites have been taking a minimal approach by subtly using black and white and, especially in recent months, we have seen an explosion of sites using flat colors. But there has been very virtually no mention of the rapid rise in popularity of pastel colors or, as I like to call them, washed-out colors.

Sites that do opt to use pastel colors or washed colors seem to have a calming and reassuring feel to them, and that is something that is truly unique on the web. They invite you to sit back, chill out and enjoy the experience. Here are 50 such sites for your inspiration:
