August 24th, 2012, 12:25 PM #1Female Colors?
A bit of an odd question, but I am trying to pick a template that appeals to women as that is who I am trying to market to. If you look in my closet, most of my clothing is some shade of blue. I will always pick blue.
In this case, I am assuming I need to pick a website template that has a white background with some other main accent color. Having a hard time deciding what that accent color should be.

So strange that you asked that because my wife and I have been going back and forth on painting a bedroom in our house. I prefer an off white color because less is more. She prefers an off green color.
I went on-line and did some research for ammunition to take my wife on (because I tend to lose 90% of the time). So interestingly enough there has been a lot of studies on women vs men for colors. Most studies indicate men prefer blue, women prefer green (now these are base colors and there are a million shades for each).
But Turquoise (blue/green) seem to be preferred by women in general, second is some form of purple. Pink is almost never in the top three (unless the women are pre-teen or teen).
If I were you I wouldn't mix green and purple, but maybe some version of one of these colors will work for you.
Meanwhile I think I am going to lose my argument and we will probably go with some form of green.Ray Khooda

We use green and purple (as an accent) together on nearly all of our sites.

Might be to test a few options with
I have fiddled with it a bit and it is quite nice.
It gives you the ability to measure the conversion for several versions of the same site.
Not a perfect tool (Ran into some issues when tested on my site) ,but seems to help in decisions as described in this thread.

I am not particularly good with colors but from a male point of view (even at nearly 70) there is nothing quite as sensational as the LBD0 to $1m before I am 70, Ok maybe 71 !!! (April 2013)

When building female-centered sites I tend to use the pastel shades of violet, yellow, blue, green, etc.
