5 Best Red WordPress Themes
Colors had always played an important part in our everyday lives as can be seen in how colorful medieval clothing was. In more recent years, it was proven that colors can also affect a person’s mood and appearance.
Take for example, black demands authority (think Batman) while white symbolizes innocence and purity (imagine a bride’s wedding gown). Green is associated to feeling calm which is why some hospital uses green to help their patients feel more relax. And many restaurants like pastel orange because it stimulates appetite and socializing!
And then, we have the powerful RED color. All around the world, red symbolizes emergency and quite often, is associate with anger. But at the same time, it also is a passionate color. Just take a look at how your neighborhood’s malls are decorated with red roses and cards filled with red hearts come Valentine’s Day. In countries like China, red is about celebration and prosperity.
When it comes to WordPress themes, the red color can be pretty interesting. Adding red color around your theme can be used to:
- Grab attention
- Create excitement
- Gives a celebration feel
- Denotes a blog with stimulating posts
