Fara is a nice-looking theme for personal blogs, with a grid homepage and a static background. The posts show up in grid style, like a gallery, and each one has a different color. Fara has a minimalist and friendly design and provides a Lightbox-like sidebar.
Fara has a responsive layout and a masonry blog style. It comes with customization options - colors, logos, favicons, Google fonts, backgrounds, menus - and it's translation ready. Apart from that, it has social links and provides MetaSlider plugin integration.
