Elementary and WoW mix theme for GNOME
All credits to the original authors. I use it with elementary-nautilus, elementary-metacity and global-menu. This is a fast ugly do with bugs, since I only modded some parts to fit my preferences.
Original artwork (check it out, it rox):
One of the reasons I fell for that theme was how it facilitated a unified look in full-sized windows due to the fixed icons. To get it visualized check out screenshot #3. In fullsize mode you can divide the screen in two parts. Program-mode on the left side, where you have information and elements related to the active application. Whereas on the right side you've got system-related information. I would move the application-menu there too, but my wife complained... There is no reason why the icons and elements in these parts need colors. Only icons that let you know something is happening needs coloring, like notifications and why not windicators, which I would place on the left application-side. When you use an application you soon get a grip of where everything is located and do not actually need these highlighted. On the workspace on the other hand colors might be helpful. For example whilst browsing for files color-clues helps you to find what you are looking for.

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”.
