This landscape may look like it’s steaming or on fire, but it’s just bright, rich colors of the time of day the photo was shot—and it makes for a beautiful wallpaper. Add a little customization, and Nicolas has a great desktop worth sitting down at every day. Here’s how it’s all set up.
Nicolas is using Übersicht, a macOS customization suite that we’ve highlighted before . You’ll need to grab it to get started, but it’s pretty much all you’ll need.
Once you have it installed, here’s what you’ll need to get the same look:
The wallpaper , a photo by GeorgeTheExplorer taken from the summit of Beinn a’Chrulaiste in Scotland
The Übersicht customization suite for macOS
The RoundClock widget for Übersicht
The Bartender utility to customize the macOS menubar
The cDock utility to customize the macOS Dock
The LiteIcon utility to tweak the system icons
The All White Icons for OS X pack to replace the system icons
All of the pieces come together for a simple, yet understated look that’s still perfectly customized to suit Nicolas’ needs, and give plain old macOS a fresh look. If you like it, or have questions about how to make it your own, hit the Flickr link below to ask away, and let Nicolas know how much you like his work—and how much we do too.
