Whether it’s a business-friendly design or a minimalist look you’re after, this week’s crop of new themes delivers the goods.
New themes: Tonal, Gridiculous Pro and Mina Olen
This week we have three new themes to introduce you to on WordPress.com!
Tonal is a free theme, while Gridiculous Pro and Mina Olen are premium upgrades. Check out each theme’s showcase by clicking on its screenshot above, or preview it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

Please avoid black and white themes for now. We already have many in the Dashboard.
Gridiculous Pro seems really really beautiful and easy to use, Well done!!!!
Reblogged this on carolyncolemangrady.
I tried Tonal a couple of days ago and liked the color palette choices.It’s a very nice clean and minimalist theme but I dislike the Title font and the fact that Titles are all capitalized lettering. Otherwise I quite liked it and would be using it now.
Hi again Tammie,
Thanks so much for your response but I don’t want to purchase another upgrade at this time. I set a $50 limit on blogging expenses for each blog per year and both of my blogs each have No-Ads upgrades and domain mapping upgrades. I’ll be keeping watch for more themes though.
Thanks for your post.
I have a site developed in WordPress some years ago that I discovered has stopped working – the slider doesn’t work and the graphics don’t show.
Please see http://www.abkey.com
The problem is only with the homepage as all the other pages seem to work properly.
I understand that it is because WP has discontinued supporting the theme that we had used.
Can you suggest a theme (paid or free) that works closely with ours so that we can migrate to it asap?
It is urgent,
I’ve been married to Chateau ever since it came out, but I still get super excited when I see the words “New Themes” on the WordPress.com blog! This set, in my opinion, is one of the best I’ve seen so far. WordPress themes are always classy and chock-full of good features. :-)
The Gridiculous Pro looks great.
I like Tonal a lot, it is close to my present theme – Duotone – which also changes background color to the image. However, it’s the last theme left with built-in right-click disable, otherwise I’d have to switch to a hosted site with plug-in for that. I know right-click disable doesn’t prevent image-stealing, but it does make it a bit harder, especially when we should reblog instead.
Tonal looks cool. Might have to check it out
Changed over to TONAL, like the overall clean appearance. The most apparent drawback so far is the title and tagline font and size– too large and doesn’t really work well. Apart from that so far so good :)
Congrats on having so many amazing themes! You are all doing a wonderful job! I am amazed by WordPress.com it is so cool!
Any chance of creating a theme with Record Collecting in mind, or one for Music?
is there a way i could “SAVE” themes i like in a particular way for referral in the future- maybe i should use Pinterest for this one

I actually think we could do with some more black and white themes, like Tonal, Singl and Ryu. They’re not exclusively black and white, I know, but I’m looking for a black and white theme, and none of the present ones are a good ‘fit’…
I like the sound if Gridiculous but, upgrades are not on the table currently. It does remind me that I need to ck my theme & see if it supports mobile electronics
I guess that Tonal and Gridiculous Pro will be used for photo- and videoblogs mainly. “Gridiculous” is, by the way, a cool word invention, but don’t you fear it might be misconceived by potential buyers who miss the “G”?
