It’s WebWatching Wednesday again and I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve been getting quite a number of black looks from fellow bloggers.
I’m speaking of the background of course. I usually prefer a white background for websites, cos it makes the lines and images cleaner and easier to read. However, once in a while I’ll come across great web designs done in black, and they’re usually very artistically laid-out. Here are a few that I came across during the last two weeks:
Thrifty Reader Ames
Ames sports a new look for her blog, and I quite like the arresting header image of what looks like a gypsy lady. She’s bathed in this red glow, and the black background plays this up very nicely.
Valeen’s Turn Another Page
I have Ames to thank for leading me on to Valeen. My attention was immediately captured by that very romantic image of a couple almost kissing, and the lush imagery of a rose, and pearls. Very classy, and sleek. I also like how Valeen includes a monthly post on classics, and some great hero quotes. Good conversation starters actually … wish I’d thought of that.
Okay, I’ve never been into erotica in a big way, but Sasha’s website, all done up in sleek black and white sure makes her books look hot! I actually got quite a kick out of seeing the links light up when I mouse over them.
Wow! Even Nalini has gone and done up her blog in black, and I think the background makes the images of the forest and the city skyline look gorgeous.
