    I just started using smartbiz theme for my website, http://www.honeypotmedia.co.uk.

    It's great - love it.

    Our brand colours are orange, gold and black - like a honeycomb.

    Is it possible to change the colour of the header background (logo area) and also the colour of the nav tabs when you scroll over them. They currently turn green. Can I make them Orange? and can I make the header/ banner Orange too?

    Help would be much appreciated.

    Does that theme come with a section in the dashboard named something similar to, "Custom CSS" or "Custom Styles", or are you using a Child Theme?

    Try adding these to your custom CSS - may not be everything you want to do, but a start:

    #banner-bg {
     background-color: #XXXXXX;
    #menu1-wrapper {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #XXXXXX;
    #menu1 > li:hover, #menu1 > li.active, #menu1 > li.ancestor {
        border-top: 5px solid #XXXXXX;

    Change the x's to color codes you want.

    To identify other CSS, try using Firebug -- it's a great tool for CSS work.
