This post is long overdue. A couple of months ago, I received an email from Kate at Domestikated Life asking for help in her blog redesign. I replied with a resounding "Yes!" seeing as I was a fan of her site, and like I do with all my clients, I asked her to send any inspirational images or websites my way. The collages she put together blew me out of the water. Have a look.
It was my design aesthetic to a tee. Recognize any of the graphics from J.Crew's emails? And the selection of colors she chose was so well-curated. I got straight to work, and after a couple months and approximately 12,000 emails, we came up with a winning design.
You can clearly see how the coral, lime, and grey colors and the san-serif fonts were pulled from her inspiration. As for the background pattern, we tried doing a polka dot, but both ended up preferring the two-tone chevron. *Note, I designed the header and background, not the overall blog layout or fonts/sidebars.

And now that I can shout it from the rooftops... Congratulations Bailey and Pete!
