Mark Jaquith writes about the boldly used colours in this theme as ,

What you’ll notice first is the colors. Way more use of color than a bundled WordPress theme has had before. Each post format has its own color, so each is distinct, yet they are all complimentary. The bold colors encourage authors to try out all the different formats. This color extends the full width of the window, which breaks your blog up into a lush, segmented timeline. This effect is even more pronounced on mobile browsers, where the screen can be dominated by one or two posts at a time, in all of their chromatic fullness.

What if I want the old white-minimal layout

With the first look of Twenty Thirteen, it appears that some people may find the theme very refreshing at the same time some may find it over bold for their site/blog and still want the same old minimal layout for their site. WordPress team has decided to provide the Twenty Twelve theme bundled with the default WordPress set-up so that one can choose between the minimal canvas of Twenty Twelve and a designer look of Twenty Thirteen.
