Let's start with color...

Happy Monday everyone!

Here at CurlyRed, we are working on a huge project: redesigning our website! It's no small feat, and something we've been wanting to do for, well, a really long time. But then came a baby, and she threw everything off-track (in the best way possible).

But now that we are moving full steam ahead, we would like to give you a sneak peak on our creative process. One of the first steps for us was creating our color palette. So we went to our favorite color picker, Kuler, to put together some swatches. And here's what we came up with:


When you see these colors together, it seems awfully bright, almost garish. But used the right way, like on our existing website, you can see how well this palette works. Therefore, we think we will be picking to a similar basic palette, but perhaps adding in some more muted tones, and a whole lot of TEXTURE.

In our next blog post, we will be sharing with you some other websites that have truly inspired us. Stay tuned!
