New Design - Feedback Wanted

Happy Friday folks! If you are visiting the page right now, you can see that I had a bit of an itch to redesign the site. I'm having trouble deciding on a color for the background of the page. Below I have links for you to preview the colors I'm considering. I'd love for you to check them out and let me know what you like, if you are bored and want to be a judgey judge
  • What color(s) do you like best? See the light colors here. See the dark colors here. Or suggest your own preferred color in the comments.
  • Do you have any constructive criticism for the design, layout, fonts, etc.? Am I missing something important? Is there too much stuff going on?

  3. How cute! I like either the dark or light yellow or light orange the best . . . I guess I'm really feelin' those citrus-y tones :-) Looks great!

  4. Okay, this is totally personal opinion and, if it matters, I tend to make everything gray or white, so that says a lot about variety in my life. :)

    Anyhow, I like the light colors the best. My favorites were blue, teal, and green. For whatever reason, I didn't prefer the purples, reds, and oranges, but that is just totally me.

    I think that the layout looks great. It's nice and clean, which I really like. It's looking great, Ali! The banner is making me hungry.

  5. I really like the new layout as is. I had this same background for a while but then changed it to just white (but I get bored easily and that changes a lot).

  7. Thank you so much for your feedback ladies. Right before I posted this, I set the background to grey just on a whim, and I kind of like it a lot. It might be a neutral color so that I could change up the images in the header and not have to worry about them clashing. But, I'm still mulling it over. :)

  8. I like the Dark Yellow best. It is warm and homey, and sets off the pictures nicely. I also like the dark orange and dark green. I do like your gray. And although i think the cool colors also look nice, as a food blogger, I think you should stick to warm or neutral colors. Little tip from my color theory education is that warm colors make you feel hungrier than cool colors. That's why restuarants rarely use blue. However, if you are on a diet and paint the wall your fridge is on blue, you are more likely to lose weight becuase you will be less hungry. Interesting, huh? They have actually tested these things.

    I love the header pics though. Salvivating over here.

  9. Great job Ali! I like the lighter colors, but nothing that stands out too much, like purples, because then you can switch the header pics if the want for change arose again!

  11. Thank you guys! I am still trying them out. I can't decide. I like a bunch of different colors. I may have to just switch it up a bit as it the mood strikes me. :)

  12. I think I like the light colors so that your posts "pop" a bit more. But I can't say that it's the best vote since I'm a bit distracted and hungry now for Puppy Chow... ;-)
