Well done Chrisber, I like that design a lot.
It's hardly worth saying, but visual design is highly subjective, and I can imagine some people not 'getting' your design at all. I've searched hign and low for something clean, white and minimalistic like this but was unable to find anything. For some reason, most theme designers feel the need to pump gallons of swirly colour and cleverness into their themes. And some of them do work quite well -- I'm not criticising people for trying to be individualistic and stylised; but however hard people try it's often an immediately recognisable WordPress platform they're using. Yours manages to look like something quite different.
In a funny way, by being so simple, I think you've ended up being pretty clever!
