Navy+Orange+Citron: New look!

  1. A Perfect Gray says:

    looks great, babe. the color combo is fresh and inspiring. my choice is number two…it's younger looking.

  2. Michelle says:


  3. lime says:

    #1–because #2 looks like too much "effort" for effortless style. #1 is much more clean, simple, and classy.

  4. C.J. says:

    number two works for me, it is happy, refreshing. I am using white, citrine and turquoise in my newly re done living room and I love it!

  5. Liz @ It's Great To Be Home says:

    Beautiful! I love them both but I think #2 looks too busy and not quite as elegant – #1 is my vote!

  6. Emily Ferris says:

    #1! and loving the organge, green, and navy!!

  7. Laura says:

    #1. #2 is okay but looks like you are trying to hard- just a little too much.

  8. Kerry @ First Time Fancy says:

    I'm going to have to go with #1 – #2 looks a little too busy for me. The site is looking gorgeous though!

  9. Flavia @ Estilo Home says:

    My vote is for #1 because of it's simple elegance. Either way it's looking great!

  10. Joi says:

    #1 all the way…it looks the part of your name…"effortless". #2 is much too busy for me. But as you said, go with your gut! : )

  11. Jen says:

    i like #1 the best! and LOVE the rest as well…the pics are perfect. With a name like 'effortless style' you don't want things to look overworked you know…you want them to be 'effortless'.

    All the best to you!

  12. Hello Lover... says:

    I love them both, 1 is simple and classic but 2 is much more fun and memorable, but I also thinks it might be a little too busy – I'd say number 1 unless you can tone down number 2 just a little, then I'd have to pick number 2. I'm sure this is really helpful (not). sorry, I tried.

  13. Dobbygirl says:

    Love the look – I love #2, but am afraid it might be too much. So my vote is with #1

  14. Carolyn says:

    Definitely #1..but possibly change it to orange or lime green?

  15. The Brick Cottage says:

    SO excited for you! I can't wait until it goes live. Love the sneak peek! My vote is going to #1–I like its clean and classic look.

  16. Fran says:

    Love where you are going with this – #1 – is my favorite. I agree w/Lime's comment – #2 looks like there is too much for an effortless style.

  17. AppleTree says:

    I love the color combo! And #1.

  18. amanda says:

    I agree with everyone else- #1 is simpler and easier to see- you want people to see and remember the name. #2 is beautiful but too busy.

  19. Shannon says:

    LOVE the orange and navy! Awesome choice. I gotta say although #2 is great, I think #1 screams Effortless, so go with it!

  20. Isabella & Max Rooms says:

    Follow your gut, but I like number one, the logo just reads more clearly and strongly to me. But then I'm drawn to simple lines vs. more complicated lines. Looking fabulous!!!!

  22. 1 Funky Woman says:

    I love the green chair in the first picture! I am loving orange and green lately what great colors and with navy, who would have thought!

  23. Elena says:

    #1 is classic and elegant. #2 is too busy and not "effortless." the sidebar borders look great and I love where you're taking it. Nice work!

  24. Elena @ white picket fence says:

    Hey! I think #1 is clean and effortless! Can you do the green lime like in #2, looks fresh! Love it!!

  25. Mary says:

    I definitely like #1 the best, it's simple and classic and 'effortless' in my opinion!

  26. April D. says:

    I like #2 because of the use of color/pattern in the title but I'm worried that you may get tired of it down the road. Also, if you want your label to remain consistent among your blog, business cards, notes, etc. I think #1 would work best. I can't wait for the new site and hope you have a fantastic trip!

  27. Sara says:

    I am so inspired by this post! I am moving into a new place and have been drawn to blues and greens and now I know exactly what I am going to do.

    My vote is #1 as well – its more timeless but I agree with other comments that the color needs to pop a little more.

  28. white wave design says:

    love #1. classic. i love the navy and orange… just changed my header to those colors a couple months ago πŸ™‚

  29. Anonymous says:

    ok. first. he orange shoes don't pop… as they blend in with the floor…..and the etagere competes with the art on the walls…. just the camera angle I think…
    I would like to see a color in the photos repeated in the typography… to give some continuity and tie it together. just thinking thru this with basic art principles. I like the first one but needs to be a little bolder..maybe larger.the little oragne flowers look like clutter in the second one.
    love you and your site!

  30. Tara says:

    #1 is my vote! It's classic and not too fussy. I agree with whoever said that #2 look like a lot of effort for effortless style. It's a bit busy.

  31. Katy says:

    The first one. The second is two busy. If you want effortless, it needs to be simpler. If you like the look of the second one, just cut back on all the extra doodles.

  32. Abbie says:

    #1… it's such a classic looking logo… and if you want to change it up later, you can always change the color. But, with #2, you would have to change the entire thing up probably if you wanted a change.

  33. Mrs. Chic says:

    # 2 is fun, but i'm thinking # 1 but its your site, I love the pics you've choosen – like your mix of colors!

  34. Mackenzie {Design Darling} says:

    first of all, love the color combo β€” did a post on blue and orange this week and they're the colors for my school! second, go with number one! it's more "effortless" πŸ™‚

  35. inthetweeds.com says:

    Love the color combo!

    I like #1, but with your header tweaked…from a branding perspective, you need to keep your logo and look consistent for your customers don't get confused…so whatever your logo is, do that as your header (I think it was the same font as #1 but with curly brackets instead?). #2 is cute but a little busy in my opinion!

  36. Debbie says:

    #1 is more elegant and classic, but I've been reading your blog for a while now and I don't think it really reflects your personality.

    That said, I think #2 is too busy. Maybe without the floral touches? Or maybe with JUST the flower inside the O?

  37. Mary Catherine says:

    Love your new blog look! #1 is my choice!

  38. Tonya says:

    Definitely #2. The colors make me happy just looking at them.

    As some have mentioned they think it is a bit busy, but in my mind it shows that you have creative juices, which is what people are looking for in a designer. Also if you keep everything else very simple and user friendly it won't feel overwhelming.

    I too think it goes better with your personality, though I haven't met you.

  39. Alicia says:

    both are great #2 is fun and fresh, but #1 is my choice, classy and chic not too busy allows you to focus on the design images and not the logo

  40. mimi charmante says:

    LOVE it! I hadn't ever thought to put these colors together but what a fabulous combo~
    Fabulous blog – so glad I found it!

  41. Meredith says:

    Love your inspiration photos! I vote for #1 because it does look more effortless. You could consider making the logo border or the word "interiors" navy for a bit more spunk too. Looks great!

  42. Julie says:

    What a great post. Definitely #1. I think #2 looks like too much for something that is supposed to be "effortless."

  43. LindsB says:

    love love love the colors and your new look!!

    They are actually close to the colors I am thinking of going with for my wedding. I want like a royal blue color, orange (of course) and a lime/citron/greenish color. What do you think of the combo for a wedding??

  44. Maggie Rose says:

    I like the design of number one with the brighter color of number two! But mostly I adore the greek key, so if you keep that, I'm happy!

  45. emily posts says:

    love option 1! Looks more "effortless"

  46. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says:

    beautiful, that nursery is stunning, love the rocker, so classy but also so unusual

  47. Frances says:

    Love the color combos, maybe a post soon on how to do orange with green and not look retro-rific? I like the first logo best, it's scrolly but not too busy, reads effortless.

  48. Sugar says:

    Number 1. #2 seems too busy. Overall, great look.

  49. Alaina @ Live Creating Yourself says:

    Good – I'm glad I am saying the same thing as everyone else. DEFINITELY 1!!

    LOVE the color combination.


  50. sara says:

    Looking Great!! Am voting for #1, as it's cleaner design, is so fitting with "effortless style" … Looks like a few agree!! Good luck!

  51. C @ Project Pretty says:

    Love the new color combo- much more "you"! πŸ™‚ I definitely vote #1- more classy in my opinion.. and as others have said- it looks more 'effortless'.

  52. Hallie Smith says:

    I agree with several other readers: though #2 is fun and colorful, it doesn't convey "effortless" the way the first one does.

    So my vote is for #1.

  53. Anna See says:

    I love #1. It does, indeed, look like effortless style!

  54. Brooke says:

    #2. It looks higher end, more professional. #1 is nice, but it reminds me of a blog header. #2 is more polished and stylish.

  55. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    Oooh, that's a toughie! I love them both,but think I like #1 better, simply because it's a cleaner look. Think the plaque could be a tad larger, though.
    I absolutely love what she's come up with for you, and think in the end, it will have been worth the wait! πŸ˜‰

  56. Aesthetic Oiseau says:

    I LOVE this color combo…navy and blue are my college colors (go UVa!) and I happen to have paired them both with green for my living room! So chic πŸ™‚ I think my vote is for the classic look of #1!

  57. Amanda says:

    If you like the Celerie Kimble fabric, you are love Sarah Richardson's latest "Sarah's House" episode where she renovates the Master Bedroom of a farmhouse. She used perhaps that exact fabric on a set of chairs in the room and they look fabulous… not too much navy in the room, but you should definitely check it out on the hgtv.ca site πŸ™‚

  58. Sarah says:

    Wow… I LOVE it!. The color combo is fab along with the greek keys and your pictures.. It's perfect.
    #1 is cleaner to me #2 cute but busier.
    Can't wait to see what you choose.

  59. Renee (eatliveshop.com) says:

    #1 is my fav!

  60. .caroline armelle. says:

    love #1!
    it's clean and perfect!

    i'm also obsessed with navy lately..
    i'm re-doing my living room with it!

  61. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says:

    Fabulous, I really love the first one πŸ™‚

  62. Maria says:

    Love it Camila!!!! Such a beautiful incorporation of colors and befitting you. i like the first one best, I also love how she incorporated your work photos too, so lovely.

  63. Anonymous says:

    I would hire you based on #1!!!!

  64. Anonymous says:

    I would hire you on #1!!!

  65. Dallas says:

    Number 1…the lettering on the second is distracting.

  66. pve design says:

    either way you go – you will always be "high heeled foot in the door" to me! πŸ™‚
    congrats on the progress——

  68. Kerri says:

    I LOVE that orange phone!! Where can I get one of those?!

  69. MandeeFoFandee says:

    I love option #1! I think it's nice and clean and simple.

  70. Emily says:

    Love them both but I would go with #1 and maybe make it larger. Love #2 but i think it takes away from the images, which is what it's all about!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
