Not too dark, but if it's ALL light colors, there will be nothing for the eye to focus on. If we consider color theory, we must use the colors in a way that will drag the eyes to the important stuff. If it's all pastell-y and Easter-ish (that's what I think of when I think pastels), then there simply will be nothing for the eye to focus on.
This, subconsciously, may affect the way a user views the site.
