I can haz your opinions, please?

November 5, 2010

Alright, so I’m thinking of freshening up the bloggy-doodle pretty soon here, and I keep hearing the white space is good space, so I’m trying a transition. 
  1. The first image is the color scheme I’ve had up for ages. The colors are gorgeous (or so I think), but maybe it’s too much?
  2. The second image is about 50 percent lighter but still with the same colors. I thought about transitioning gradually instead of going straight for stark white.
  3. Last, but certainly not least, is your basic white backdrop. Maybe I could jazz up the borders and sidebars and header and whatnot for a leetle infusion of color?
So here’s where you come in: I need some input, and lots of it. Which scheme do you prefer? What else would you tweak? How do you feel about the all-white trend? Tell me what to do with this ‘ole mess!


  1. haha. I love everyone’s different opinions. I vote to keep the first one, please. 😉

  2. I’d go with the middle, it’s the best of both worlds. Plus the all white one looks kind of washed out.

  3. My favorite is the first one. I’d go with either that one or just settle for all white because the second one looks washed out to me. That’s just me though, whatever you like is what you should choose. 🙂

  4. I’m getting a blog makeover soon too and I’m loving the all white blogs. As a blog reader, I find it much more pleasant because then my eye can focus on the lovely pictures without being distracted. Also, I think it lets you load up the sidebar with whatever without it feeling cluttered. So, I’ve gotta vote for numbah 3. But you can definitely bring in color with the header, post titles, sidebar, etc.

  5. In a design world white is beloved because it gives you more options for color of the rest of your elements. In that way you don’t have to constrain yourself. But your color palette is very pastel, and not really intrusive, so I you don’t have to worry about that.
    On the other hand I would agree with Franca tho, if you are going to change it, then go with pure white not a 50% of your pattern.

  6. To be honest, I like the first one best. It’s funny how there’s this total fashion for lots of white space on the blogs at the moment. If you were going to go light though, I would go for three – I’m an either/or sort of girl!
