    I am making one of those bento box patterns and I can't decide which layout to use. One has the same colors in each block and the other has 2 colors in each block. My husband liked the 1 color, but his thinking is never outside the box. My kids liked the 2 color and I think I am leaning towards it. Not so boring with a little more interest.

    The first one is easier on the eyes. Looking at the second one my eyes went everywhere, no where to rest.

    The first one is nice, my favorite.
    The other one is VERY busy!

    While I normally am an out of the box kind of girl...the first one for some reason is easier on the eye. I would separate those two purple blocks at the bottom right...they jumped out at me. :)

    This pattern is another that's on my 'to-try' list. Yours has wonderful colors. I prefer the first outlay.

    Definitely the first one. The pattern is a busy one and the same colors together help the eye follow the pattern. It's hard to see the design when you mix the colors.

    This is going to be really pretty when you get it put together!

    I vote for the second version. I think it is more interesting to have 2 colors.
