A look at the Stylish GTK Theme.

The search for cool and new themes never stops. While digging through the thousands of themes in websites, search results – I found this cool and simple GTK theme – Stylish. Stylish is designed for GTK 3, GTK 2 and GNOME Shell. It comes with 6 base types of combinations with 4 color variants.

6 Combinations includes –

  • Stylish
  • Stylish-Laptop
  • Stylish-Dark
  • Stylish-Dark-Laptop
  • Stylish-Light
  • Stylish-Light-Laptop

All above combinations comes with 4 color variants – base color (grey), Tang (Orange), Azul (Blue) and Jade (Green).

The base version is having dark title bar and the color combinations are different as you choose. The Light version is having the light title bar with color options as chosen. The dark theme is completely dark with the colors.

The Laptop variants are optimized for Laptop screens with smaller icons and spaces between them – it looks compact.

Here’s how they look.
