This theme is also widget-ready and comes with 2 widget areas. The Sidebar widget area works as a normal widget area, replacing the default code with the widgets you choose. The Home (top) widget area is for adding widgets to the top of the sidebar only on the homepage. For example, if you want your own custom message at the top of the sidebar on your homepage you could add a text widget to this widget area.
Also, the main text input areas have font family options to choose from. Since the theme options are many, you can use the image below to help identify which areas match the fields on the theme options page.

Help with Choosing Colors
Inputting your own colors allows you to completely alter the look of this theme from within the admin panel. If you do not already have some color codes in mind, you should use a paint or image editing program to help you decide which colors to use. Or you can use some type of color picker program like the Color Zilla add-on for Firefox browsers which lets you easily grab the hexadecimal codes from your browser screen and save custom color palettes. A non-browser solution would be something like Color Coder 2.
