Cutline was subtle and economic, Cora is not.
1 - Remove the needless leading in bodytype and sidebar text - everything *looks* far too spacey, and is *wasteful*. And H2 headings are grossly over leaded.
2 - Change the tacky Postit note yellow of the main sticky. A light grey tint would be cool. Or anything less tasteless. And reduce its fat borders so they don't dominate the text like a corset.
3 - Likewise, reduce the fat borders round photos which only diminish the images. The great benefit of Cutline was that images filled the full column width and allowed some of the biggest images available in WP themes. Now the photos themselves are needlessly shrunk and bounded by thick borders.
Naff. Naff. Naff. That's what Cora is.
