Boutique style web design has been around for several years now, but it has seen a surge in popularity this year thanks in large part to the many new small businesses choosing this style for their websites and online stores. Designs in this style are often created using gentle curves and soft colors and feature patterns or other whimsical design elements to help develop a unique look and feel.

People like pictures, and sometimes the bigger the picture the better! While there is a downside to using large background images for websites (high bandwidth use) there seems to be a growing number that feature this type of design. From a design perspective these sites are very popular with web designers because they offer a unique opportunity to use new layout and navigation schemes that might not be all that common yet in the world of web design.

These two types of web design styles are some of the most popular that we have seen this year, and we are happy to have contributed a few to the boutique style design group!
