3 Beautiful Color Style Options

Pretty Young Thing Child Theme


  1. This looks great. Being a dude, I wouldn’t use it myself but I like how you guys are filling a niche for themes of specific interest to female bloggers.

  2. This is beautiful. I absolutely love the colors. Wish I had a girly girl blog to use it on. My blog is written by women, but we’re not the girly girl types. :-)

  3. Great addition! You all just keep piling on the value for Genesis members! Love it!

  4. Love, love, love it guys!!! I may just have to switch over, he, he…

  5. Another great theme. Hope you guys release something a little more masculine soon. The girls have had their fair share of new themes lately :)

    • No worries Jared, I’m currently working on one that’s a little more masculine. We had a huge void here at StudioPress, so we wanted to spend the last few themes on it.

  6. looking great. another great collection added on theme club

  7. That’s a sweet theme. I might have to recommend it to a mommy blogger I know.

  8. Love the new theme! I need to find a website to use it on, just gorgeous! As always the themes are spot on

  9. Very elegant and beautiful child theme. Thanks

  10. Nice work Darcy. …

    I would like to see some current themes that allow for news and reviews, that sort of thing. Magazine, News, Streamline and Sleek are good and work well, but feel dated to these eyes (mainly since I have been looking at most of them for a few years).

    It is great to see all of this design/development, Brian.

  11. I love this theme. I was playing with it when it was in beta and came up with this:

  12. LOVE this! I am a BRAND new blogger… Just set up my very first WordPress blog last week :) There is so much to learn, but I’m excited to take on the challenge. I’m in need of some design help, and have been looking at some of your themes for a while, and am excited to see this… You did need more “girly” type themes for us mommy bloggers!

    You may have just finally made me become a customer….

  13. This is a very beautiful theme – feel like creating something new just so I can use it :)

  14. I am a digital scrapbooker mom, and I just love, love this theme. The colors, the design, I recognize a digital scrapbooker instantly in the creator. It’s so beautiful, so inviting, once i finish my current blog project, I will switch my joyremembered blog to this. So refreshing to see a feminine blog theme.

    • Thanks so much for the kind words – and very happy to hear that you love the colors and design. We know there is a shortage of WordPress themes such as Pretty, which is why we are very excited to make it available!

  15. Thank you Darcy!! As always, your creativity is stunning! :0)

  16. Thanks Darcy for this beautiful and stylish new template. As a new member to the StudioPress family (I recently completed my first business site using the Enterprise theme), I am delighted to see such a wide variety of themes being produced and I look forward to what is yet to come.

    After 11 years as a web developer using our own in-house engineered CMS, we made the switch to WordPress 3 months ago, and it is our partnership with StudioPress that has given us such great confidence and expectancy for a great future.

  17. Love this theme. I am new on Studiopress and I wonder how this work. Looking for a theme close to Ballet as I am starting on a blog for my dance company.
