New Colour Scheme?

What do you guys think?

I spent a few hours working on some new colour schemes... These are the only that seemed somewhat worthwhile. I like the current Centaurea montana header image, but I think it's getting a little full of itself.

Despite the layout being basically the same, each of these has minor tweaks that took, like, so much time it's ridiculous. Do you know how hard it is to get "The Indoor Garden(er)" in the header to be on two lines? Most of the time I spent on these I was trying to figure out how to get the head and the description on the same line--it's impossible. I swear. If anyone can figure it out, I'll roast some pecans for you!

What colour scheme should The Indoor Garden(er) switch to?

  1. I like the orange. Everyone does green... Blue not so much, but purple second to orange.

  2. Love the orange! Like summer is on its way. You definitely have an eye for color, layout, etc. I say, switch to the orange.

  3. I like the idea of the orange one but I think it's a little too bright. The clematis one is really nice though all around and is my pick.

  4. Actually on second thought I think the orange is really nice, especially the way the center part of the flower lines up with the sidebar. Maybe tweak the text & link colours in the sidebar to make them more neutral &/or tweak the background of the main text area colour so it'll look less busy and you'll have a winner.

  5. Huh. I also voted orange, but I figured there was no way it would be this popular.

  6. It's clear: Green is too common of a garden-blog colour and the blue is maybe too contrasty.

    I'm going to tweak the orange design a bit (I don't like how tall the image is, first off), but I think that's what I'll go with.

    I'm trying to figure out some small bit of fanciness. We'll see if that happens.

    Thanks for all your comments!
