Terracotta is a premium skin for the Thesis WordPress Theme that will allow you to instantly transform the look of your Thesis powered site.

Thesis Terracotta Skin

The skin features a warm terracotta color scheme and styles for a sharp and unique look with a minimal use of graphics to keep site loading times fast. Also included is an optional header ad class for the use of banners or social media icons in the header area.
