Select the necessary widget type from the drop-down list.
While on the Appearance tab choose where you want to position your widget: there are 9 positions to choose from. Then choose what color you want the widget to be. Click Apply theme to choose the main color and all other colors will be automatically matched. You can also choose from the colors used on your actual website (Website colors).
