What are the predicted website colour trends for 2022?

There are a number of website colour trends that are likely to be particularly popular, and very effective in the New Year. These included:

  • Rose-Gold colour schemes
  • Blue and black colour schemes
  • Soft yellow


Rose-Gold is rich pink or vibrant peach colour that brings energy and attention. Usually used as the secondary or tertiary colour, this can be a little heavy for backgrounds. And this means that it has been paired well with cream, white, and pale grey backgrounds, as well as darker greys and black to generate more contrast. However, when used as a background colour, Rose-Gold has also been successfully and effectively paired with darker tones of grey.

Blue and black colour schemes

Blue and black colour schemes are very effective for a range of business types across a number of industries. This can be used in a number of ways, including:

  • Using pale blues and pale greys- at the lighter end of the spectrum, this colour combination can be stylish and flexible, without being overly serious.
  • Using pale blues and dark grey/black- this colour combination allows the brighter, lighter blue to really stand out. In this case, the blue should be used as the secondary or tertiary colour to really generate contrast and visual interest.
  • Using dark blues and pale greys- dark blues can create deep, rich focal points on a pale grey screen, or you could use the pale grey to highlight key features. Either way, this colour combination can be effective.

Soft yellow

Throughout 2022 we predict that a number of companies will make use of soft yellow as part of their web design colour scheme palette. This can suit all manner of colour schemes including monochrome, dark black or grey, deep blue and purple website colours. The yellow is frequently used to accent important features, as a secondary or tertiary colour, rather than the full background colour.
