Blog Redesign Moodboard

10 Jun

After blogging for nearly two years now, I felt it was time to freshen the blog. My current design is a bit tired and I always welcome the chance to use my design skills. Plus, Alt Summit NYC is next week and I wanted something shiny and new to showoff!

The first order of business was to create a moodboard. After pinning lots of pictures on Pinterest, I narrowed the results down to six key images. Pay particular attention to the geo shapes in the first photo and the use of Kraft paper – both items will be prominently featured in my new design.

L to R: 1. BlueBirdLab; 2. How About Orange; 3. Piece of Cake Piece of Mind; 4. Stack and Gather; 5. My Vintage Book Collection; 6. Urban Outfitters

Based on the moodboard, I developed the following color palette. As many bloggers move toward completely white palettes, I decided to buck the trend and plan to infuse bright color and texture into the design. My home and wardrobe features a lot of color and I wanted my site to reflect my life – it is a lifestyle blog after all!

So when does the new site go live? Next Monday! I can’t wait to share the new design with you!
