Dark colors with red/black/maroon.Preview it
Note: I added mods to the postlist.tpl file, so allow for rows with new posts (not seen by current user) to be separately styled). They are in the extra css area. I don't know if this is the place to post the mod or whether it should be in the other forum.
To see the separate styling for read vs un-read posts in topics, simply click a few topics, read them and refresh the forum list. it will be obvious.
Anyway, hope you like it.
