The Elegant Light theme is a mod of Elegant Brit, by fmrbpensador.
Elegant Brit is a nice theme, but contrast between bright white windows and deep black panel just too much for my eyes, and so I, while keeping all core components of the theme (like simplicity, flat and stylish look), decided to get rid of high contrast and in exchange make theme look light and smooth. I think I succeeded somehow. At least I really like, what I got as the result! Hope you will enjoy it too.
There are two Metacity windows decoration - with and without borders. If you use some compositing manager with shadow effects - I suggest you choose "No border" version. If not - hmm you can try it too, but it is a bit confusing sometimes.
Waiting for comments, recommendations, suggestions, criticism and other scary stuff I really appreciate all feedback that I can get.

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
