Men and women respond to colors differently so you may want to pay attention to your target market instead of your personal choice. We recently did a color update for our client SharpRoofing.com. They discovered that about 80% of their site visitors were women. The problem was that their website was designed with a black background and dark grey....which is not the most appealing for their clients. Check out the before and after pictures:
I had a great time meeting a group of Seattle area interior designers at the Duralee showroom. One of the things we talked about was how to create a mood board. I tried out a couple mood board sites and I really likes Mural.ly but Olioboard was cheaper.
My first try was a whitebard for visual ideas, it's Mural.lyand I created this little mood board.I've never done it so I took a stab, everything has a learning curve. Mural.ly is free for 2 murals, for 30 murals it's $29 mo, and there's a business level. I'm not sure if 2 is the total or if that's 2 per month.
The next one I wanted to try out isOlioboard.comso I tried out a few images and decided it was pretty simple.
