Design Inspiration

I've been considering a blog redesign, and I'm thinking some fun lavender and turquoise will be the main colors. I read on a wise designer's blog that making a board on Pinterest to help with the blog design is a good first step. Well, heck, I'm ADDICTED to Pinterest, so obviously I'm going to be doing that. As soon as I read that, I was off to the red P for some inspiration...

The icy tones of these colors are incredible, and are the jumping off point for the new design

As a girl who's in love with all things retro, this font just grabs me

There is so much I love about this picture, the selective pops of color, the patterns, the clean lines.

My design board doesn't have a lot on it right now, but I'm keeping my eyes out. I would definitely like to keep the design clean, but colorful, and fun. That can be a hard balance, and I might end up paying someone to design it for me, we'll see. I'm a photographer, not a designer, and every time I attempt something like this, I'm reminded of that fact! :)

Have you enlisted a professional to make over your blog? Please leave your recommendations in the comments!


  1. I used a designer to help me with the redesign of my blog. It was great, since I know nothing about html or css, and I'm fine leaving it that way! I was really happy with the results. I'm happy to pass on my designers info if you want it.

    1. Thanks! I'm not to that point yet, but I will keep that in mind for when I am!

  2. Love the colors Kristie! Go for'll do a great job..even if you get a designer you'll know what your colors will be sorta :) Blessings!

    1. Thanks so much! I love the colors, and I'm hoping it'll be awesome and happy :D


Speak your mind, fiercely!
