OK... so you like the orange... not the blue. Check.


One thing to remember: The layout of that site (and the colours of it) aren't what I came up with... The three little boxes under "idea" are - the blue and orange.

I'm going to play with some more combinations - let me know if you've got any other ideas.

many thx!
Marko
Sorry for the late post, I haven't been on the forum in a few days.

Well, all I do on here is post and read, so I don't explore much
What OTHER parts of the site?? Like, the arcade, blogs..... ect? I haven't really got a clue!

Welcome to pets.ca Tommy. I hope you won't be pulling your hair out by the end of the week.

I would like to see soft blues and soft greens with a neutral background....perhaps soft grey or soft taupe.

I like that color scheme a lot, Tommy. I never get tired of soft blues...very easy on the eyes...and the soft orange just punches it up nicely!

Marko's given me some pretty high compliments about the gang here... And I've dealt with some pretty rowdy groups before - so I should be alright.


I really like the taupe/blue/green idea. I'll play with that one later... I'll try for one without blue, too.... What are we thinking? Red? Purple? Bright yellow?

He warned me about the picture-focused (see how I avoid the word "crazy") group here.

We're going to let you all see an idea of what the site will look like when we're that far... Remember, today is day 1 for me - still figuring out what's what.

Easy! All I have to do is find a way to incorporate... green, light yellow, multicolours (!!), orange, purple, light purple, lavender, lilac, silver, muted blue, blueish gray, blue, mauve, tangerine, soft blue, soft yellow, grey, soft green, soft grey, soft taupe and maroon.

... Seems like I've got my work cut out for me.

I'll posts some new colour combo ideas tomorrow!
