Picking colors for your blog design (and more)
When thinking about my new blog design colors were the most important thing to me. I wanted something colorful without being overwhelming. That is why my background is gray and my sidebar, title, and social icons are more colorful.
One day I sat down and spent about two hours going over color palettes. I know that seems like a long time but I wanted my new design to be perfect. And it was worth my it because I am so happy with the way the new design turned out.
The three sites below are ones that I looked at before the design of my blog. They are awesome. If you have a certain color in mind it will help you figure out what other colors will match best with it. This is the color palette that I picked for the design of my blog. I knew that I wanted green, pink, and yellow. It doesn’t have yellow so we just added that.
And what I love about these sites is that they help with so many more things than blog design. I am about to make a new paint sample board and will be using them to help pick which colors to use. I also am using them to help me decorate my living room. I have a lot of brown and it’s nice to know what colors will match best.
Here are the three sites that I looked at and were so helpful. You might want to give them some of your time before jumping into the design of your blog. You can also check out my Colors board on Pinterest to see what colors stuck out to me.
