Moms, can I get your opinion on something please?

I am creating a website directory of all the children's businesses in my area. A mom (or parent/guardian) would be able to go on my website, look under the category, say for example daycares, and find a list of daycares in the area along with the address, telephone number, and some would have more details like a link to the companies website, detailed information, etc. My problem that I am having is the background of my webpage. I don't want it white and boring, but I also don't want it too busy or loud either. I have a logo as well (which I will post below), so I don't want it to clash with the logo. Can you give me some ideas on what colors you would like to see on a website like this? Would you want a design like a child's drawing in the background or would you want solid colors? Thanks in Advance!

  • I love solids with combinations of black and white. :-). Like a black framed picture with details in black - white background and your logo. With red, blue and green I think it won't look boring in black and white. Just add some extra focal points and or borders. I think this will make your logo stand out and not compete for attention...... Great idea, Have fun !!!

  • I'd go with a lighter version of the logo, repeated - maybe bigger, but lighter colors, more faded, whatever.
