    Works for me:
    [css]
    .site-header {
    background-image: url(images/logo.png);
    height: 200px;
    width: 100%;
    margin: 0;
    margin: 0;
    max-width: 1140px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 0;
    padding: 0;

    I had the . in the code, just did not copy it here.

    So, I have tried to re-install the theme hoping I could start from scratch and maybe that would solve the problem.

    Now I need to know how to get WordPress not to re-apply all of the changes I had made to the theme in the past 24 hours.

    I deactivated the theme and activated Genesis Sample.
    I deleted the theme.
    I re-installed WordPress
    I looked at the blog in Genesis Sample.
    I went in and uploaded a fresh install of lifestyle-pro.zip.
    I looked at my blog, and it had saved the color customization I did earlier.
    I decided to try a different method.
    I copied just the css file from my computer file of lifestyle-pro.
    I pasted that into the css stylesheet on my website.
    Result? No change. It still has the matching green color I customized at the start of this mess.
    In fact, the css code shows the correct color, but the blog shows the old color.

    and I did clear my browser cache, and my caches in WordPress.

    Now I am like a dog with a bone. I do not want to give up.

    Can anyone help?

    I ended up just restoring it to what I started with at the top of this thread, so that it at least looks half-way decent. I have to get some sleep and I don’t want a bunch of people looking at it all a mess.

    Thank you for your help. I will either get fresh eyes tomorrow, or switch themes completely.

    Try locating the following CSS codes in your stylesheet file. I’ve tested using Firebug and it seems to expand the header logo. Reduce the padding from this point ( padding: 3.6rem; ) you can change the 3.6rem to a lower number to make this work.

    [php]
    /* Site Containers
    ——————————————— */

    .site-container {
    background-color: #fff;
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px #ddd;
    margin: 36px auto;
    margin: 3.6rem auto;
    max-width: 1140px;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 36px;
    padding: 3.6rem;

    [/php]

    I just wanted to say thank you all for your help.

    Turns out all of your code was working like it should, but the CDN on my host has to be manually purged through a support ticket. Once we disabled CDN, the updates took effect. I appreciate your kindness with a novice!

    PS. I just switched to a new host this month. This is the first time I have tried to modify a theme since that time :).
