10 Beautiful WordPress Themes from the Official Directory

We are obviously theme junkies here and everyday we check the official free theme directory. It’s only March now but many free themes have already became available since the new year. To highlight the great themes there I picked up ten themes added in 2012 that are not only coded well but look beautiful.

Like last year, 2012 has been and is going to be another great year for WordPress themes. Huzzah!

  1. Wow – great list (and with pictures to boot!)

    I already have a couple of ideas in mind for a few clients that are looking to have some sites created.

    Rumput Hijau looks nice, clean, and crisp! Perfect for someone who wants to concentrate on the message of the content, and not a lot of pictures (I could be wrong!)

    And, Sundance, has a nice look to it for a video blog!

    Thanks again for sharing!

    Be Well.
