Octavia is a gorgeous and elegant WordPress theme suited for creative professionals that want a stylish yet business-like theme to house their portfolio, blog, and online store.
This theme is focused on showcasing your best content effortlessly and comes with a smooth parallax scrolling top section that provides a way for us to creatively display content which will be exciting for users.
The demo was inspired by this moodboard that combines elegant and soft textures (navy, pink, grey and nude).
I´ve choosen two elegant Google Fonts that work amazingly together, EB Garamond for headings and Ubuntu for body text.
And finally I got to design the WordPress theme!!
Octavia comes ready with many options:
>> Parallax scrolling
One custom background image that move at different speeds, creating the illusion of depth as you scroll down the page.

This enables you to display flexible sections in front page ( one, two, three,.. widgets per section).
The theme customizer allows you to tweak the theme’s settings, color scheme, typography (+130 Google Fonts) , blog archive ( grid layout, post excerpts, full posts,..), header,… and you will be able to preview the changes made to your WordPress website in real time before pushing them live.
