I have been using MurrinaGilouche for quite sometime. I like the theme
because it looks clean, all fonts are very clear and very easy on my
eyes. Some other Murrine themes are nice but my eyes get tired after a
short time. I put this the first priority when choosing a theme.

You might want to chat with Andy Fitz. I learned from Máirín Duffy:

| Clearlooks.

GTK theme looks to me does not require many colors, so you can be as
creative as you like, as long as the theme fits in.
