Design Love | Current Inspirations

So for the past couple of days I have been trying to find some inspiration to start a new template because I really need to make another one, but I haven't had the time to just sit down, relax and design. So tonight that is what I dedicated my time to. 

I love, LOVE finding new and amazing websites/blogs that are just beautifully designed. I believe that a well designed website or blog speaks so loudly when it comes to the person's personality and just creates the atmosphere for great content. If you have a poorly designed site or are just un-happy with it, then you might have that feeling that you don't want to post anything or go to your own site and see it. For me design is everything and I love it. So here are my favorite sites so far. Not only for their amazing designs, but their content as well. 

1. DesignLoveFest

Research lead me back to one of my favorite sites, Designlovefest which is create by Bri Emery is who is an art director and the Los Angeles-based founder and editor of the site she is a lifestyle blogger with an amazing talent for design in style and a lot more amazingness. She usually post amazing photography, which I envy in a good way. Seriously her site is the best. Her design is so simple yet effective. Not a lot going on, easy to understand and her content stands out great! 

She also has FREE Downloadable Wallpapers and they are the CUTEST things ever. I am constanlty downloading background from her site. I'm obsessed with her site!! I mean just look how amazing those donuts photographs are! Obsessed! 

2. Mrs Lilien
I found this ( and most of the ones mentioned below ) through Designlovefest. This one is.. gosh. This site has that I Love Lucy feel to it and it works! The design is so clean, yet fun and colorful and really different. I have never seen a crooked navigation bar and it looks amazing. I absolutley love this site and its design. There is so much detail in the work and If you know me as a designer, you will know that details are my favorite part. I feel like the more little details the more the designer spends making the design and makes it even better. Designing great details and making sure it looks good together is so important and I admire people that put all their time and effort into creating such things. 

Can we just talk about the cute hand on the sidebar with the big ring?! I mean seriously, how cute is that!

3. SF Girl By Bay
I wish I had little gifs to express my love for this site! Everything just works. Simple, minimalist design with a little life in it. The flowers up top just make the site so bright and gorgeous. Her photography is also amazing. The only thing that I am not a fan of is the header though. I feel like it could have been done better, but besides that I love it all. It has a little retro/indie style to it yet modern and very sophisticated. I feel like that style is very in right now, and it is one of my favorite things to see on blogs/sites. The vintage and modern twist is so beautiful and SF Girl by Bay portraits is very well. I also love how her sidebar is stacked instead of all down the line and I love the flowers!! Super cute site and it definitely inspired me ;)

4. Essie Button
Okay, so this seriously has to me one of my top TOP favorites even thought its at number 4, it doesn't mean anything because my obsession with this design kills me!!! I got the inspiration for my YouTube Channel Art from Essie! Her site is amazing. It is so fun and you just love looking at every bit of it. Essie is also a YouTuber who creates some pretty great content. If you haven't seen the "What's In My Grandma's Bag?" video, you need to go do that RIGHT NOW! It is probably the cutest/funniest thing I have seen!  But anyways, I love the illustrations that Essie has on her site and the confetti. It is so fun but once you scroll down, the blog has a white background which really cleans the "important" section up and it just works! (how many times have I said "work") but it really does.  This site is seriously "blog goals" for me because I love how fun it is!

And that is it for now! I think I am going to make this a regular thing on my blog! I will post different websites that I have found that I love when it comes to their design and their photography. I hope that you guys check out these amazing sites and youtube channel. They really are great! 

See you guys later!!
