Fresh New Look!

I am OOOOOHHHH so excited to share with you Linen & Gold's new look! Yup, she got a facelift, and I am really thrilled with the way it came together. 

I instilled the help of Aubrey Kinch of Kinch Designs to make my blog's appearance be what I really wanted. Sure, I could have learned coding and taken weeks to get it done but neither my husband nor my sanity would have faired well if I went that route. I did a little research, contacted a few blog designers and after looking at her website and seeing all the different looks she created, I knew that she was the perfect fit for what I was looking for.

She was so very easy to work with. Aubrey really listened to what I wanted (and being a designer sometimes what I "want" can change in a heartbeat). She pulled together the color palette and elements I thought would best represent my style in blog form. One thing I really wanted to incorporate in this blog was Greek Key. It is my all time FAVORITE pattern.  We played with a few ways in which to incorporate it into the layout but it just wasn't working. I started to come to terms with the fact that we may have to leave it out of the layout but VOILA¡ she sent the 3rd board and that was it! 

If you are looking for a new design for your blog or website check Aubrey out. She has a real talent and a fresh, young approach to her work. 

I am excited about the upcoming posts I have for ya'll.  I have lots of projects,  collaborations, design chatter & even a few DIY tutorials are in store! 

So let me know what you think of the new face of Linen & Gold!  Isn't she purty?
