Description:

Starling is a quick and dirty retooling of the excellent Greybird theme to be darker and lower contrast. All props to the fine folks who put Greybird together--it was beautiful to start and I've simply changed it a bit to reflect my own tastes.

As always, extract the tar file to /usr/share/themes. Icon set used in screenshot is the fantastic Any Color You Like.

Xfwm is handled by a (tiny) modification to Almendra Black's white version. I removed the color from the window decoration's close button so that all buttons are white or gray. You can get the rest of the set or look at the original version at http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/Almendra+Black+%28xfwm4+theme%29?content=154534

GTK3 is handled by the Night Darkest variation of the Mediterranean theme (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/MediterraneanNight+Series?content=156782). I did some modification to remove some color (monochromatic is how I roll).

Most importantly: enjoy the theme!

Hey awsm work on this theme.. works perfectly on my MATE 1.6
BTW just a suggestion..
You may want to change the color (preferably blue) of the text eg:heading of the various windows.
its kinda "engraved" which i "like" but the color is black on black background, so kinda makes it hard to see..
If u r getting no idea.. here is the pic: http://tinypic.com/r/in5puc/5

Hi! I see your pic but it isn't showing up that way for me (it's actually showing up a lot uglier!)

I recommend using the almendra black theme for your window decorations: http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/Almendra+Black+%28xfwm4+theme%29?content=154534

Mainly I made this theme to use with my own xmonad setup, which ignores titlebars altogether, so I hope this helps!
