Go against the grain with “Dark Wood,” an eye-catching and playful theme. Bright colors and whimsical icons fuse with dark tones to provide a pleasing and harmonious design. Dark Wood is a three column theme with a rich wood textured background.
When you’re looking for a theme with some serious character, Dark Wood could definitely be the one. Bright links and header icons give the design some real spice, complemented with a whimsical background.
Dark Wood doesn’t leave out the extras either. There are two sidebars that can be packed with widgets and the search box comes styled nicely to match the design.
Dark Wood will provide a pleasing and harmonious backdrop for your blog. Give it a spin and see how you like it.
Dark Wood is available for all WordPress.com sites and is available for WordPress.org users over at the Theme Directory.

Superb! I like it.
Mar 18th at 11:52 pm
I might just like this one. It looks great.
Mar 19th at 12:00 am
good. now people are liking the wooden themes more and more.
Mar 19th at 12:15 am
I love the richness of the blog and the brightness of the links. Thanks!
Mar 19th at 12:27 am
This looks like a very handsome dark theme. Thanks.
Mar 19th at 12:30 am
I really like the new theme, but I wish so much that the fonts were larger. Are there any plans to offer the ability to increase font size? There are many themes that I like, but many of the fonts are just unreadable for me.
Mar 19th at 12:36 am
Awesome! New theme surprises me.
Mar 19th at 12:41 am
looks great, I’ll try later, thx
Mar 19th at 12:41 am
Mar 19th at 12:46 am
Wow, I am number 5 ^^. I just want to say thanks to all of you guys and gals at WP.com. New themes are always exciting. But I wonder, why there are no new one-column theme? I hope, someday WP will upload it. Thanks again!

wOw .. sO cool !! I love it !
Mar 19th at 12:55 am
I really love it. thx
Mar 19th at 1:08 am
I like a lot of it, including the layout, background, colour scheme, and text sizes. However, there are two things I really don’t like and which spoil it for me:
- The flower icon (next to the post’s title).
- The head-and-shoulder icon (next to the post’s author’s name).
Mar 19th at 1:14 am
I like your cherry tree. Looks great!
Mar 19th at 1:20 am
Good work, but absolutely not for me.
Mar 19th at 1:23 am
Great job on it! Keep the themes coming! I’ve yet to find one that suits me just right. It’s always a matter of give and take with each theme, but I know that you’re bound to come out with the one that suits me perfectly soon enough! Your new ones have been very impressive. Many thanks. =)
Mar 19th at 1:27 am
Great theme! Thanks
Mar 19th at 1:36 am
looks great. I wanted to try this, but I didn’t want my widgets to be resized to suit this theme…
Nice, keep working
Mar 19th at 1:37 am
This is really cool, but the only problem I see is the font. It looks horrible (thin). Is there an option to change the font?
Mar 19th at 1:40 am
Wow, I love this. I just may try it out! Thanks!
Mar 19th at 1:42 am
awesome! It looks sweet.
Mar 19th at 1:56 am
Very nice indeed
Mar 19th at 2:02 am
Interesting. I know lots of people will like this but it’s not my cup of tea.
Mar 19th at 2:12 am
ooh! love this new theme! great job =)
Mar 19th at 2:16 am
Wow, that is so pretty! I’ll definitely be trying that theme whenever I switch from Spring Loaded. GREAT job WordPress!
Mar 19th at 2:16 am
Love it! Love it! Love it!
Mar 19th at 2:19 am
All of the nice new blog themes always have a flower or something pinj going on. I wish there was something this sleek with a custom header and no pink flowers! This is nice though!
Mar 19th at 2:23 am
Mar 19th at 2:25 am
Mar 19th at 2:30 am
I’m not going to lie, this looks great! I love the “old” kind of look this theme has! The color scheme is great and I love the layout. Beautiful!
Keep up the great work, WordPress!
Mar 19th at 2:31 am
wow, great work. thanksss
Mar 19th at 2:38 am
When i have read dark theme i was expecting black or something …..
but this looks good.
Mar 19th at 2:44 am
3.5 stars out of 5
Mar 19th at 2:46 am
Classic for this one…nice!
Mar 19th at 2:53 am
It is a good format to display art or photos within a blog. It has a homely feel to it and a dark tone to help colors and images POP out! Blogs about nature would also go very well here. Nice.
Mar 19th at 2:54 am
I like it… thanks WordPress
Mar 19th at 2:55 am
Wheww!! I love dark WordPress theme so much!!! Absolutely great one to use.
Mar 19th at 2:55 am
Mar 19th at 2:59 am
nice theme…well organized.^^
Mar 19th at 3:02 am
Love it! Almost makes me want to create a new blog
Mar 19th at 3:11 am
superb work…and looks great. Very neat:)
Mar 19th at 3:11 am
one of a cool theme again from Noel.
i really like your themes such as iNove, monochrome, and this one.
but i want a theme that has features like:
- page hover (it’s a must)
- theme that doesnt have ‘border’ if i insert image & tables (must)
- customize header pict (opt)
- 3 column widget (opt)
i mean, that theme will be like union from monochrome & dark wood, but doesnt have image & table border
i really glad if you can make that one in wordpress.com
thank you very much
Mar 19th at 3:19 am
I may actually give this one a go, although I’ll have to finally redo my custom header. Does this one have the RSS feeds? I will miss Vigilance’s “alert” feature, but this may be an improvement on everything else.
Mar 19th at 3:30 am
Mar 19th at 3:51 am
It reminds me of Napoleon Dynamite’s paneled bedroom. Just need a few posters. Very cool.
Mar 19th at 4:00 am
very nice! does it have a custom header? I might give it a whirl for one of my blogs!
Mar 19th at 4:02 am
I love this theme! Very good job my friend!
Mar 19th at 4:06 am
looks great!! definitely one of your amazing designs
Mar 19th at 4:10 am
Mar 19th at 4:11 am
I love it! But the draw back is when previewing it a lot of my posts can’t be read because of the various color type i used. I’d sure like to use it–its a wonderful change, but would have to go back through 100′s of posts to edit them.
Mar 19th at 4:20 am
Nice work! What a lovely theme, brilliant.
Mar 19th at 4:30 am
Woah! Another theme so soon. You guys are on fire. The colors are great. My brother would love this theme for his rock band blog. Keep em coming.
Mar 19th at 4:42 am
i love this theme,,,,yeah,,i love the colors……:)
Mar 19th at 4:59 am
Mar 19th at 5:03 am
I’m glad how there’s a new theme. I’ve recently changed my theme to Titan and I’m heading over to the Dashboard to change my theme to this
Mar 19th at 5:13 am
Its great but if it has a dropdown menu i will be perfect for me.. can it be? such as in my web site.
Mar 19th at 5:51 am
Thanks a lot… I like it!!!
Mar 19th at 5:59 am
The problem I have is with the header, it’s not very big.
Mar 19th at 6:01 am
the wooden color are cool, I like it, nice creation.
Mar 19th at 6:02 am
This is just one of the best I’ve ever seen! I’m going to ask my dad if he allows me to change my theme again. I’ve just ‘fallen in love’ with this one!
You guys are great!
Mar 19th at 6:04 am
very nice. I like it
Mar 19th at 6:19 am
Mar 19th at 6:34 am
Sorry to be negative, but that is horrible.
Mar 19th at 6:47 am
Looks nice! I’ll stick with Titan though.
Mar 19th at 6:51 am
This is okay for those who like lot’s of Widgets and a dark theme, but its not for me. I would love you to port over something like Antiline or a wider ‘light’ theme but which is lighter and ‘neat’ looking. I like a large font in my header as well. Keep these themes coming, we users need far more to choose from on here, and more Widgets as well.
Mar 19th at 7:19 am
i love it! The wood background was something I was looking before. And now it comes out. Great job WordPress!!!
Mar 19th at 7:28 am
I really love the look of it, but the design is so wide, I had to scroll at the bottom to read everything. And the 1″ border shown in the example above is not there. I extended it as far as it would go, and there’s only about an 1/8″ on either side of the transparent overlay.
Mar 19th at 8:11 am
Theme are very nice and natural, I like it
Mar 19th at 9:07 am
I think I’ll try this one! Thanks, Noel!

Dante Alighieri’s Commedia begins:
Midway in our life’s journey, I went astray
from the straight road and woke to find myself
alone in a dark wood. (John Ciardi’s translation)
In this early 14th Century masterpiece, the “dark wood” is both literal and figurative – standing for sin, the death of inspiration and love and political corruption.
Here, “dark wood” offers “Bright colors and whimsical icons fuse with dark tones to provide a pleasing and harmonious design.”
Sometimes, dark wood is just simply … dark wood.
Mar 19th at 9:25 am
Reminds me of the 1970′s basement we all hung out in. Very nostalgic, good job.
Mar 19th at 9:27 am
dark wood is good theme..i love it
Mar 19th at 10:11 am
Still waiting for a white one, without borders and with some fresh details. Somethging abstract.
I love those where you can put your own header.
Mar 19th at 10:39 am
Thanks a lot! It’s always great to see there is a new theme for us!!
Mar 19th at 10:43 am
Great work best for online website carpenters and I am one of them. Stunning!
Mar 19th at 10:57 am
It´s look like great. Perfect colours.
Mar 19th at 11:14 am
I agree with one of the commentators. The theme looks fine but the text size is too narrow. Makes it difficult to read and detract from its appearance.
I love the pink flower though
Mar 19th at 11:30 am
It is brilliant….I may change the look…
Mar 19th at 12:23 pm
looks interesting. will check it out
Mar 19th at 12:30 pm
This has such a warmth to it. I’m definitely a fan of extra widget space. Thank you for being so attentive to blog themes lately!
Mar 19th at 12:31 pm
I still believe that someday someone will make a two column theme with flexible width and with dark wood background
Mar 19th at 12:32 pm
What’s different between “Dark Theme” and “Light Theme”?
Some people said me that “dark theme” is heavier to be accessed. Is it true?
Mar 19th at 12:34 pm
Looks cheerful and powerful at the same time. Congrats…
Mar 19th at 12:59 pm
looks like a myspace layout
Mar 19th at 1:12 pm
Great theme and super original!
Mar 19th at 1:14 pm
This is going to be a popular one!
Mar 19th at 2:07 pm
It is easy on the eye. I like it!
Mar 19th at 2:13 pm
I like the background a lot, haha, keep it up
Mar 19th at 2:20 pm
Love WordPress and how you guys keep innovating and coming out with new themes and features!
