Welcome back to MML after my little break! This Memorial Day weekend was just what I needed – and so was the gorgeous weather here in Chicago yesterday. After a super long and intense work week, I recharged (read: napped) during the thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. And during the dry moments I Biked the Drive with Mr. Lively, had dinner with a good friend, and did some beach walking and mall shopping.
While I was out of the office last Thursday and Friday, MML got a bit of a makeover as you may have noticed.
It went from this:
To what you see today.
I have had the old look above for more than a year and it has served me very well. It has the feel of many other sites I admire that deal with my favorite topic – home interiors. The chevron background was an obsession which leaked over to my designs and it suited me and MML perfectly.
However, I’ve recently realized that my purpose for MML and the content is not the same as the shelter blogs I read, and that it might be better suited to a different look that better reflects what MML is about – designing a life with intention. And this simpler color story helps focus attention on the words and ideas presented in the posts. I also think it’s fun to give the logo a fresh look, inverting the colors on the header as well.
Hope you like the new look as well!
