Microsoft's Expression Studio Blend, Web, Design, etc. all have two themes -- Light and Dark.

Is it possible to obtain and use other themes?

There's a whole bunch of themes on the official Microsoft Expression Theme Gallery. Take your pick.

EDIT : My original answer is non-applicable - question asked was not themes for documents, but rather themes to change the look and feel of the app itself. Updated answer below.

Microsoft Expression uses a mix of native Windows UI elements, and also Windows Presentation Foundation elements. As such, it is really tough to edit even the base colors alone, so unfortunately, the answer is...

Nope, you can't haz more.

Sorry, had to vote you down on that one. These are themes for APPLICATIONS you create using Expression. These are not themes for the Expression applications themselves. – Will Sep 11 '09 at 14:44
No worries on the downvote, i'm not going to hunt you down at your address and stick a knife in you. :) Sorry for misreading your question, I get what you mean now - Look and Feel of the app itself. – caliban Sep 11 '09 at 14:53
Can you source me on your update? I'll mark as answer (sometime)... – Will Oct 5 '09 at 13:33
