Yay! A pretty, girly, COLORFUL theme! Thank you WP, you’re awesome!
Wow, that’s really nice. Have to give it a go.
I love this theme, very beautiful! Though I am too fond of my current theme to switch over to this one.
OMG, how pretty!
I love it!!
Love the theme and I’m using it! Great job! Even the background goes well with my blog. Really awesome… and thanks! :P
I don’t like it. Not at all.
Wow, very artsy. Nice work with the layout and design, the hand drawn graphics are a great touch.
Very beautiful and pleasing theme. :)
I absolutely LOVE IT! I may switch over from “rounded” to this theme… it’s almost too beautiful to resist.
I love this one! Great job!
Wow, very artistic! Honestly not my style but still this is a beautiful theme! Especially the header and footer! Thanks. :)
Love the theme! This is the girly theme other bloggers were looking for. I love the art work and custom background.
Keep up the good work! :mrgreen:
Oh, very pretty!
WOW! Love the header and footer! Perfect accent to the background.
I love it, it looks chic! I’m using it already. Congratulations great job!
Wow, that’s gorgeous! Well done.
Whoa, I really love this theme… I’m almost tempted to change from my beloved Cutline now!
Thanks for the very attractive theme with customizable features.
Oh-m-geeee! Such a pretty theme! Oh, we do need a lot more of this type. Pretty <3
Think I’ll get it!
Now you’re doing much better! I like it.
A very beautiful WordPress theme, especially the color. Nick La is amazing.
GORGEOUS! Best one so far — congrats!
It looks great! :)
I have been waiting for this for ages! Awesome, thanks!
Fabulous, beautiful. If I hadn’t just changed my theme, I’d switch again. But I’m going to go and try it on for a few minutes….
I like the Koi. In aestethic terms. It appeals to the artist in me.
Hey Lance! This theme renders a peaceful pace when you look at it. Keep them coming, Theme Team! Thanks very much! Cheers!
Very pretty–but I hope people customize it so the blogs don’t all look the same.
I think this is one of the most beautiful themes that you offer! Wow!
I like this new theme. I might try it one of these days.
I totally love it! I already know my new theme.
I love that you’re beginning to offer more themes that have background images/patterns/colors that still have some flexibility for personalization. Thank you!
Thanks to all of you for the incredible support you provide. Gorgeous work!
Gorgeous but can’t use it. Keep going people, I can’t wait to see what’s next. :)
Very nice! I have to say I’m not a fan of having the widgets at the bottom of the page — I prefer them on the side as you scroll down — but the theme has nice aesthetics.
I switched to it immedately! I love it!!!
Lovely; have switched to it immediately.
Love it. Gorgeous.
I LOVE IT! Soooo much better than recent “minimalist” gray, cold themes that have been coming out… love it.. Very warm, and seems easy to navigate. Will change to it immediately! (Still waiting for a horse-related theme though… :D)
Really a beautiful theme!
Very inspiring and individual, procures a light and happy—but also thoughtful—with some kind of draft. Amazing work! :D
How lovely! I would totally consider this look if I were on the hunt for a new theme. :)
Is there a way to change the font color as well? When using a darker background image the font color gets lost. :(
I LOVE IT. *Jumps up and down and tries not to squeal with excitement.*
This is so awesome. I am using it for my tea blog already. The design works very well with the worm, peaceful but colorful and lively looks and feel of tea theme. Just looking at it makes me happy. Thanks very much!
Beautiful! Guess I’ll try it. :) Thanks!
Stunning! What else can I say? Thank you, guys!
Aw, after Notepad now Koi. Great! But I’m still waiting for Modern Clix!
Nice… love it. :)
Pretty. Keep up the good work.
Now that’s a lovely Asian theme.
This could be handy for our Costa Rica Artificial Reef Project site. With a tad bit of color change it would be totally oceanic. Condofish is using “Bueno” right now and it’s working well. I’m always looking for something new though.
Wow! Cool theme!
If the color of the background is tweakable, and you change it to something dark, will it change the whole page and simply place the (lovely) illustrations on top of the new color, or will the new color only change in the post’s backgrounds, with the peachy color around it? :)
I’m using this for my Nihongo blog.
Nick is very talented… I’ve liked his work for awhile now.
Yeah, I love it. An ornamented oriental theme! Is it inspired by an instrumental music titled ‘koi’? :)
