I have chosen darker and warmer colors to set the mood for this theme. There is a lot of air, and highlighting the images. The boxes or frames are square to make the site look clean and strong in the expression, but since I have used a warm gold looking color around it, it still looks warm and soft. There is a lot of “air” between the elements, to make the theme look elegant at the same time.

ROMANTIC BLOGGER THEME
For the romantic blogger style I have chosen a romantic color to show the expression, pink. I have used a darker grey color to tone the pink down, to not make the site to childish. Round boxes make the site look playful and feminine. I have used a curly font in the top header, and made a playful search box, this makes the site look not to formal, but more personal. Some elements are added like hand drawn arrows, this again makes the site look playful. There is a lot of air; I wanted to do it this way, to avoid a noisy site. There is not much more elements needed to make the site look romantic, less is more.
