Color Me Inspired! Covers to Inspire Your Blog Colors

Get inspired by book covers and find colors for your blog design

I love beautiful covers, the colors that the designers use are sometimes awe-inspiring. At times I use covers to inspire the designs I create. The colors, the type, the lighting and balance. Here are some of the covers that I’ve been inspired by lately. Beautiful covers of books that have been released in 2016. They made my jaw drop – I hope you like them to. Then I created color palettes based off of the colors – who wants a design with these colors? I know I do…

The beautiful blues, teals, and purples of Never Missing, Never Found by Amanda Panitch are truly an inspiration. They make me think of sunsets and flowers, of change and emotion. If you want to reassure and inspire your blog visitors go with this color scheme.

Places No One Knows by Brenna Yovanoff

I feel a romantic twinge when I see the cover for Places No One Knows by Brenna Yovanoff. This cover with the ever popular “floating” models makes me want to blow kisses and listen to Taylor Swift. Want a romantic and passionate feel to your blog? Use this color scheme.

The dark tones of On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis inspires depth and emotion. The blues and deep rich navy of this cover are hiding secrets and mysteries. This color scheme would be a wonderful choice for blogs that want to give a rich and artistic feel to their blog.

After the Woods by Kim Savage

There is no denying that this cover is organic. Rich greens with the creeping vines and the dark tones add a creepy feel to After the Woods by Kim Savage. The look of it definitely inspires. Give your blog and organic and natural feel to it by using this color scheme.

It is no surprise that The Black Key (The Lone City #3) by Amy Ewing is one of my favorite color schemes. I’m ever the fan of lavender mixed with blacks and whites. It makes me think of fall nights, vintage curtains blowing in the night air and the smell of jasmine. Give your blog a depth and vintage feel with these colors.

          I tried everything to change or remove it yesterday.. I logged in and out of my google and wordpress account to see if it would give me an option to rate again but it won’t let me. I feel really bad about it and I’m really sorry. I was worried you’ll block me from your site . I’m very sorry.
