Hey all. Can you review this design comp that I made?

Here's an image of the design.

Some of the things I'm especially worried/interested about:

The only texture at this moment is in the navbar - I was thinking of either going w/ stripes as a background w/ tan and blue, but I already use a lot of tan and blue...do you think stripes would look good? Personally, I like the stripes (they'd be diagonal) but think it'd be too much tan and blue. Could I change existing colors in the design to make room for those colors?

Also, what do you think about the typography? I use Century for headings and Verdana for normal text. The cursive font for the splash images is Lucidia Calligraphy.

Are there any size choices that you think I'm getting wrong?

Is the overall theory of design alright?

Thanks a ton.
