  1. Hi, thanks for mentioning our website. Just one little remark: Jolena is not a German website, we’re from Belgium and so is our designer (Veerle Pieters) :)

    Best regards,

  2. Agreed, above web designs are really good and inspirational. Now days web designers are using broad and different colors for more attractive websites, color combination play a very important role and above examples proves it.
