The founder of StudioPress, Brian Gardner, looks like he’s developing or already completed a Pinterest style child theme built on Genesis.
Based on this image Brian published on Dribble recently, it looks like the theme has already been created and might be released after Genesis 2.0 is officially released within a week of WordPress 3.6 hitting the shelves.

Looks very StudioPress in my opinion which is something I like, how about you?
Add some high quality images and I think you could easily create a very unique and highly functional Pinterest style theme built on the new Genesis 2.0 Framework. You could also add your own custom schema based specifically on your own niche.
Your HTML 5 markup will output the custom micro data for your niche, helping Google better understand and index your content.
If you’ve watched the video discussion about Genesis 2.0 recently, you’ll know there’s around half a dozen new child themes in the pipeline, some of which may already be completed or close to completion.
Free Pin It Child Theme for Genesis
One theme which is already available, is the Pin It child theme built on the Genesis theme framework.
I tested this theme on Genesis 2.0 and it worked fine.
The home page looks good however the single posts are a bit plain and might need some custom styling which isn’t difficult to add.
The coding looks good and the theme uses most of the built in functions which Genesis provides for featured images etc.
Non Genesis Pinterest Style Themes
Here’s a list containing some of the best Pinterest inspired themes I published earlier.
Seen any great looking examples of Pin it or Pinterest themes for WordPress?
