Time for a Face Lift...

...for lovelylittlenest, that is!

I have given up on trying to find a free template that is also chic, and have resigned myself to the fact that it's time to bite the bullet and go for a custom design.

So, what designer is so fabulous that he/she is going to be able to pry the cash out of my hot little hand?

I have no idea! There are so many great web designers out there that I don't even know where to begin. So, if you'd like to refer someone - or if you are a designer yourself - please send a name my way!

I'd like my blog to be gray, white, and aquamarine with maybe some pops of lime or coral. My style is modern but I am also drawn to some vintage and natural designs. I'd also like it to be set up with the list of labels on the left, posts in the middle, and other links and such on the right. Here are a few images I collected to give you a better sense of my style:



















So, give me some names, people! :)

I think your blog has a really nice look, but I completely understand the desire for an update.
I worked with Carrie of Sweet Faerie Designs when I revamped, and she is a wonderful graphic designer.
However, I've apparently got blog design OCD, and am AGAIN considering a redo - have been looking VERY closely at Rainy Day Templates. You may want to check each one out for yourself.
Good Luck!!

I'd love to work with you because I think your blog is FABULOUS! I do all custom...no premades, after all, if you are going to spend money on a blog wouldn't you rather have it be a design that no one else has?

Hope to work with you! :)

I really loved the girl I worked with -- Erin @ Designer Blogs. She really listened to me and I got exactly what I wanted (and the price was really reasonable!).

PS - Love the idea of all that turquoise!

I am a designer and would love to help if I can.
I can tell you have a fabulous style.

I wish we had more of a lead for you but my poor hubby took it upon himself to design our site all by his lonesome so I'm afraid we don't have anyone that we've personally worked with to recommend. That being said Nicole over at makingitlovely.com is aaaahmazing and on her sidebar she links to her very own web design service called Smart & Lovely. Definitely worth checking out! Hope it helps!

Try rainydaytemplates.com

She does custom and premade blogs. I think they are super cute!

I would recommend Marina at Penny Lane Designs...she is fabulous and is very affordable. Of course, I think she just has a baby, so she might be a little busy right now.

Melissa at Operation Nice is also a very talented designer. She created adorable "we've moved" cards for us, and I just loved them! http://mel829.blogspot.com/
