How to remove gray area around header image?

Hi there – Thanks for designing a cool theme! I’m new at blogging ( and am trying to take away the gray area around my header image. I don’t see a specific place to do so in the style sheet – any tips? Thanks – Ashley

Go to WordPress dashboard → Theme Options → Other → Custom CSS and add the following

#branding {
background: #fff;

This will remove grey background but unfortunately border/box shadow will remain because it covers the entire site.

Great! That worked nicely – thanks Aigars! Ideally though, I’d like to have the green menu bar bump up against the header image instead of the wide space that is there. Can I do this? Thanks! You’re very helpful

I will try to implement this in the theme as header instead of logo. Hopefull I will get this done by tomorrow. Will keep you posted.
