Modest

Modest is a truly elegant and simple design that doesn’t sacrifice character or style. With this theme I really wanted to strip down all extraneous detail and give people some lightweight and pure. It was hard to resist my natural instict to add additional design elements, but I think this exercise in restraint has yielded a theme that will serve many people well.

  1. Thanks for sharing all these themes.  I have bookmarked many of your theme posts.  I have used both Modest and Minimal from Elegant Themes and find them easy to modify using child themes.  You have shared a few more themes to check out.   Keep on sharing!
