I have changed the classic Octopress theme to this cleaner greyshade theme by Shashank Mehta.

This is how you can install:

$ git submodule add [email protected]:shashankmehta/greyshade.git .themes/greyshade
$ git submodule update --init
$ echo "\$greyshade: #1DBE49;" >> sass/custom/_colors.scss
$ rake "install[greyshade]"

Note that the only condition from the author is that you use a unique highlight color. In the above, my highlight color is #1DBE49 (my kind of green).

After installing, I entered my email in _config.yml which is needed to show the profile pic (via Gravatar).

With that, here are screenshots of the old vs new:
