StartBox is a great theme framework for WordPress. It comes with an incredibly easy-to-use, modular settings page. For users, this means a quick and painless setup for your website, for theme authors this means an incredible new level of control for your themes.
This theme celebrates artistry, exhibiting an antique frame, touchable fabric texture and hand-drawn stitching highlights. It has a rich, strong approach displaying soft colors, realistic textures which come together to make an unforgettable playful and unique finish.
This alluring theme’s colors and sensibility make it an ideal to use with a personal or creative website. It is rich with widgets and comes with two delicious color palettes, a dusky rosé and a pale powder blue to fit any season or mood.
Baby SweetTooth is a magazine-style theme styled for your baby girl. It takes inspiration from premium WordPress themes, scrapbooking, and baby girl’s clothing and decor. It’s built to share all of your thoughts and memories, pictures and videos in an easy-to-access page. If you use FeedBurner, you can add your FeedBurner ID in the theme options page and have your visitors, friends and family subscribe to updates by email. The theme options page allows you to specify which categories display on the home page, what images to use, everything that requires setting up, and the theme is smart enough to know if you haven’t set up some crucial areas, it won’t display them. Rather than forcing you to edit code just to get your site set up (which, if you’re doing a baby blog, you probably have much better things to do), we put all those variables in the back-end with easy documentation and a welcome page that lets you know when you need to set up your theme options.
In short, we took all the power and functionality of a premium theme and combined that with the appeal and design of a simple mommyblog. And made it free.

Simple Gray is a minimalist WordPress theme we did a couple years ago. Having not touched it once in over a year, with the launch of Museum Themes, we figured it was time to revisit it. We’ll be revamping all our old free themes and officially releasing some of the ones we never got around to. Added features to Simple Gray are Twitter @anywhere hovercards, WordPress 3.0 menus, installation notes, Google’s Droid Sans web font, and some nice css3 shadows for browsers that can see them.
