Hi J

The reason for this is that you are using the red palette of our new style, Burlap. Part of this style are the color blocks for the different drop regions. In future you will have the option to select your color, but this is just the first implementation of this feature, so it is limited at this stage to a single color. The color of the blocks on the layouts for all the other styles is white.

For your site, you could achieve a similar result if you used the Tastelessly style, which also supports custom banner and background images but does not have additional colors associated with the layouts. This would mean redoing your banner and background images, but it is an alternative suggestion if you don't want the color blocks.

Hi J-

I'm excited to see that you're using the new style I designed!

If the colors that are used in the style & palette combination you have on your site don't work for you, the colors in a different palette of the Burlap style may work better. By selecting a different palette, however, you will need to re-set your banner and background images.

The other palettes are very neutral and you may find that they match the greens in your site better.

Good luck.
