As I said it's not that you did a bad job, I just think the buttons don't have 
enough contrast compared to the dark blue...

I also like the color, but the shading could be somewhat brighter, it gets 
almost black. People are used to light and bright colors by default. We should 
thake this into account, I believe.

Alternatively StyleTab may use recolor-image like in Crux theme and let the 
user choose the color? But this would involve additional tasks in theme.jl.

One more thing that came into my mind: what about merging DarkColor into Dark 
and SilveColor into Silver and adding the option (to all styles) whether to 
have colored buttons or not?

This would reduce the amount of duplicated images and in case of an update it 
would save you some time, too. What do you think?

Thanks for you work,
