Feedback on my site redesign

Hi Everyone,

I need some feedback on some minor redesign I'm getting done on my site. You can see it here .

What I'm aiming for is something a bit bolder and that showcases my work a bit better on the index (home) page. I also wanted to work in more ferns/ green to pick up on my business name, Fern House Studio. I think I'd like the background green a bit more green, like a more spring green color,and maybe the ferns a bit more prominent

Please let me know what you think. You can post at this thread.
Thanks thanks thanks!

Update on October 7th: The new design has gone up... But you can still look at my site and give me feedback! Thanks...

I really like the bright green. The color green = creativity (as you probably already knew).
It would be nice to have a few ferns overlapping on top of the pages.
I swapped links with you btw...
nice to meet you.

hmmm, some people can open the link to the template, and some can't--not sure why.

I can open the link - and I like it! Definitely much bolder, which I think is great! And I like the bad across the top with your designs.

Thanks-- I deceided onthe band of thumbnails of my work because I want people to be able to see more of my work right off the bat when they go to my homepage.

Christina,

I like your original page better NOW because it feels finished, but I think the new one could be much better with some changes. First, the pattern in the green is so subtle as to be ineffective, and I'm looking at the page on a large monitor. Can you enhance the pattern? or go with a larger image? I think it would be nice if you could get some more shades of fern green in there, too. New fern green is nice, but how about some darker accents, maybe even some of the brown from the cinnamon fern. What about putting in some of those lovely dots from the first page? You could add a few here and their in neutral colors to create a feeling of depth.

As for the center, I love the band at the top. I don't know what't going to go in the middle, but would love to see more thumbnails along the bottom.

Hope these comments were helpful. I look forward to seeing the changes. Good luck!

Apart from the blank white space in the middle, I'm struggling to find a difference, even in the green colours...

Oh, I should clarify, since this was first posted, the new version has "gone live", so you can't see the old design anymore-- so of course you wouldn't see a difference.

Also, that icon in the middle with the blank space around it is an ad: I swapped ads with another person and put it there for a bit so she'd put my ad up on her site...so I know it doesn't looks o hot, but it wil be gone in less than a mopnth.
