Books Keep Me Sane is one year and eight months now but I’ve had the same theme ever since I started.
To be honest, I am a total design freak but I’m very picky too. Last year I did say that I’m going to change my theme, and then 2014 ended and I still haven’t changed my blog’s look. I HATED the way it looked but I was too lazy to change it. So I made it a point to finally do it this 2015.
In case you didn’t know, the typography of my old theme was inspired by Pretty Little Liars because at that time I really liked PLL.
I didn’t know where to start with redesigning my blog so I chose to base the design on Shadow and Bone’s cover.
Here’s how the first design looked:
Yeah, not so good. It looked too gloomy for me and I couldn’t find the right font for the design so I chucked it and worked on a new one.
The hardest part of this process (or any design process for that matter) for me was finding the right font for the design. I’m so indecisive too and I couldn’t stick to just one decision.
Since the last design was so gloomy, I wanted the next one to be vibrant with bright colors and beautiful images. I’m really obsessed with anything and everything watercolor so I searched for a bunch of watercolor tutorial and watercolor flowers.
So, without further ado, here’s the final look:
I chose the Truly Minimal Theme for this one because I like its simplicity. I don’t want my blog to be too cluttered, and you know what they say—less is more!
I’m happy with how it turned out (for now) but I’m pretty sure I would have the itch to change it again, let’s hope it doesn’t take almost two years to make that happen.
