We like bold, elegant yet simple designs, clean, fun and elegant.
FUNCTIONALITY/AESTHETICS: The blog already exists at http://www.decoretoile.com. The overall style is nice, as it has simplicity, color and elegance, but it the theme needs to be more relevant to interior design.
We also like the idea of an illustration of designer somewhere in the blog. The designer (probably a she) should be professional dressed (please no cocktail dresses :-)!) and sitting on a piece of furniture or at a desk, or similar. May be blogging on her computer, or may be just relaxing. See http://www.shopittome.com and http://www.courtneycochran.com for inspiration.
Star design should be incorporated somewhere in the theme, but should not be too cartoony!
On a side note, if you think you have another great idea for the blog theme we are open to suggestions.
