VIOLET inspired color


This is such a sweet spring picture!  Love it…even though I use a ridiculous amount of pink on my sites and in many of my designs, my favorite color is purple.  It’s pretty yet soothing, not so dreamy like the blues and greens or too hot headed like the pinks and reds, somewhere in between all that.  Enjoy!             Photo courtesy of Pia Jane Bijkerk.

PARTY inspired color

inspired color from modern sugar

I’ve been VERY obsessed with cupcakes lately.  Every party deserves a beautiful, super yummy cupcake!  I’ve been experimenting with all kinds and colors…the latest is classic vanilla with a chocolate frosting that mimics canned but is so much better, and banana cream pie cupcakes.  Super yum – what could be better.  My favorite in the last couple of weeks was last weekend – lemon blueberry with lemon buttercream frosting.  So, as soon as I saw this picture it made me {Read More}

I love, love, love this color combination.  I can remember buying Delia the entire Gymboree lemonade collection because it was made up of these beautiful shades of pink and yellow.  Throw a little brown in to even out the color palette and you’ve got the makings of a beautiful boutique web design!  Not to mention the color combo is perfect for birthday parties and cupcakes! Look for these pretty colors in our next boutique website template from My Quick Boutique…should be out {Read More}

Love these colors…they make me think of spring!  I have some fun Facebook freebies coming from this inspired color.  Working on a Facebook timeline template, business card and some website backgrounds. If I didn’t have kids home with me today for a SNOW DAY they would be out this morning…but alas, will have to wait until later today…maybe even tomorrow.  It’s supposed to snow all day and into tomorrow.  I should be upset to lose work time, but the kids are {Read More}

Lavender Inspired Color from Modern Sugar

I could literally spend hours looking at children’s and baby bedding.  The colors and combinations are always so much more inspiring than what is out there for adults.  Hence my latest inspired color palette – Lavender.  These colors are very close to what my daughter chose last year for her room makeover…I wish she’d give up the turquoise blue zebra stripe comforter for this, but I have a feeling I’ll lose that battle pretty quickly! Look for these pretty colors {Read More}

Ruffles Exclusive 3dCart Template

Inspired Color Ruffles

I just love this picture, with the ruffled shades, lots of white and bright pretty spots of color!  I knew the instant I came across it that it would inspire a new website design. With this design, we’re trying something a little new.  The boutique website template I created, Ruffles, will be sold exclusively on 3dCart.  I’m very excited to let the super capable team at 3dcart have at it with this template.  You can still get any of the {Read More}
