Iris Dark is a flat theme that uses varying shades and tones to create distinction and a modern experience. It supports Gtk 3.10, Gtk 3.12 and Gtk 2 (using the Murrine engine).

I'd appreciate it if you could report any bugs you find at

Also see the Iris Light theme:

This theme is great, I wonder how can we match Firefox inactive tabs to this, The text becomes white, and unreadable on white tab background.

In the next release, there will be a firefox theme included. In the meantime, try using this theme:…

Absolute perfection. Stylish and easy on the eyes (both literally and figuratively). I spent my first points on DeviantArt on this theme and I couldn't have spent them any better. Keep up the great work, please! :)

Great and original work!

Can you suggest a Gnome-shell Theme that goes well with Iris? Still elegance-colors or something else? Thanks :)
TheVirtualDragon Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'd still say elegance colors, due to the customizability of it. I still haven't gotten round to making an Iris GS theme, so this is your best option. :)

Thank you!!
Really like Iris ;)

Hello TheVirtualDragon, 

This is a beautiful theme! Could you link me to any tutorials that would help me to install it? Thank you :)

Extract the archive that you download, and move the folder in the archive to a folder called .themes in your home folder. If ti doesn't exist, just make it. Also, you have to press Control+H to get it to show.

Is there any way to make Chrome/Chromium use dark color for top panel with tabs?
