The following post is brought to you by Squarespace. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.

Do you guys remember when we had to build websites from scratch? Ugh. I remember coding and saving every individual page after slaving over the basic structure of the site… Oh how far we’ve come. Now, it is so easy to create a beautiful website with a few clicks, and even if you want to completely customize every little detail, it’s still way easier than the “olden days.”

I’m constantly looking at other websites (even non-blog sites) to get inspiration for the next iteration of Design Milk and to spot new trends in site design. What I didn’t know was that most of the sites that I really love are, in fact, not designed from scratch, but use web-based software like Squarespace. If you’re in the process of building a new website or re-designing your current site, here’s some serious website eyecandy that might inspire you to make the move to Squarespace:
