I’m playing around w/ some colors for my blog.  White was a little bland, so we’ll try this. 

Comments?

  1. Okay, it’s already MUCH better. The dark background works fantastic with the banner. The side bars are too dark I think. Go almost white, but still brown – if that makes sense. Like 75% of the current color.

    I actually dug the white but this doesn’t look bad.

  3. David says:

    Looks great Scott. Nice color combos.

  4. noelle says:

    I think the center strip should not be stark white…

  5. Rachel says:

    I like it!

  6. Betsy says:

    I agree that the sidebar is too dark. Maybe leave the background and change the text to white?
    It definitely goes with the “coffee” theme… you should change the center to a more “steamed milk” color. This is too “whipped cream”.

  7. Tally says:

    I agree the side bar text could go to a “steamed milk” color as well as the center. It’d tie everything together.
    I do love it though.
    Now I have to fight the temptation to go and mess with my own blog.
    Some people fix cars, others fix blogs.
    Take care Scott. Keep up the great work on the site.

    On second thought the side bar is slightly too dark.

  9. Yeah, I agree Rachel. I’d make the two side bars the “steamed milk” color and leave the text dark. The middle staying white is nice to draw the eye into the center.

    I’m Liken’ it…

  11. Betsy says:

    OK, I liked it better when there was a differentiation between the middle and sides. Any thoughts?

    wow – what great comments! i’m going to keep messing w/ it over the next few days. special thanks to kenny eicher – http://www.eicherdesign.com/blog/ for the overall design idea.

    I’m no Kenny – but how about making the sidebars the color of the coffee cup.

  14. Betsy says:

    I agree, Scott.
    #D7CFCB is the pinkish color in the header background. That would be nice…
    #C4A583 is the color of the coffee cup.
    I think either would look great and blend a little better than this one.
    Also, as long as we’re futzing around with it, you should enlarge the header to match the width of your center column. The 3/8″ on each side is bugging me.

  15. Betsy says:

    Sorry, that’s really more of 3/16″… if anyone was in the mood to correct my estimate.

  16. I’m pretty happy with the currernt palette. As for the image at the top, it’s actually needing an extra 15 pixels all around :)

  17. noelle says:

    I don’t know any fancy lingo…all I know is the sides could be a little less Restoration Hardware green and a little more creamy colored….then you’d have perfection (as long as you also added a photo of me somewhere…)

    Noelle, you need to adjust your screen resolution! There isn’t any green on this page.
