Welcome to the first post in my Beautiful Blogs series, where once each week I feature an amateur blog with a particularly attractive blog design. This week I am starting off with The Hinton Home. I recently stumbled on to Rachel's blog and thought the design was so beautiful yet simple, that I just had to share it first. The design was created by Kelly at Fabulous K Creative, and she should be very proud!
One of the things I love most about the design is the mix of block and handwritten fonts, and how two colors were used. It created a great contrast without being too busy. And, I adore the vine that weaves through the header and is used as post dividers. The background is white, so not too busy or overwhelming and it is quick to load (a big deal when people are surfing).
While Kelly, at Fabulous K Creative created a wonderful design, Rachel, the blog owner, has done a nice job of keeping her sidebars clean and uncluttered, with just the right amount of text and buttons, which keeps her readers happy and coming back.
If you have a moment, stop by The Hinton Home and look around (don't forget to leave a comment). Her design is so lovely, it might inspire you to try something new!
