Ready to dive into your website design? Or perhaps you’re in need of a refresh? Or maybe you’ve purchased a website template but don’t know where to start on how to make it your own? Explore this curated list of Bloem Creations’ fave resources and go-to corners of the internet for fresh website design inspiration.

Fave FREE stock photos: While I always recommend clients have a branding photoshoot, having quality stock photos can also come in incredibly handy. These are my three go to sites for stock photos for web design.

  • Pexels a wide variety ofphotos for just about anything
  • Unsplash similar to pexels
  • Kaboompics is my go to for anything editorial, luxe, and minimalist

Color Palette Inspo: Having a beautiful, cohesive, and fresh color palette is crucial to your website’s overall aesthetic and branding. Here are some of my fave places to find fresh color palette inspiration for a new website design or refresh.

  • Canva (Free and pro version) has great templates and tools for extracting color palettes
  • is great for finding fresh color palette inspo or pulling color from a photo you upload
  • Pinterest No list would be complete with Pinterest for inspiration (for many things, including color palette) Explore my pinterest page to explore some of my current color palette inspo

Design Inspiration: I love drawing inspo from everywhere. Books, magazines, billboards and more. But these two sites are great for sparking fresh inspiration specifically from website designs.

  • Siteinspire showcases stunning website examples
  • is another great spot to browse diverse designs to get the creative juices flowing for designers

Fonts & Graphics: There’s nothing better than finding the perfect font. Jen Wagner is the GOAT in this realm, IMO. But you can find SO many gorgeous fonts and and graphics on creative market as well. Have fun!
