    I've been scratching my head for the past 2 days trying to find a good wordpress theme for a client and have come up with nothing that fits.

    The site will need to be wordpress based and be similar in colours, style and layout to http://www.textar.com

    I'm comfortable changing the colours etc via css so don't mind editing.

    Has anybody come across a theme that looks similar to the textar one?

    Get a custom theme on rentacoder or getafreelancer. You can find quality work at good price.

    :D Is your client sure he wants the exact color settings?

    My eyes hurt....

    Don't know if you have any saying in this but I would strongly suggest something less bright...

    not sure if it helps but i use arras theme (google it).

    its a magazine style template which is extremely flexible, there are simple settings that can turn it into a three column layout (which is what you want i think) and a really simple way to edit the header (upload your own) and background colour.

    I'd go with a custom theme from a designer, but I'm pretty biased.

    Hi there,

    I've had good use changing this theme up in the past. It might work well for your job (you mentioned that you're familiar with colour changing).
