In that case I'd suggest to look into the MATE applications. They are
still Gtk2 and are forks of the original Gnome2 ones. At least for the
time being they will stay Gtk2, even though Gtk3 migration is planned,
Also the MATE project has subscribed itself to keep the look and feel
of Gnome2, so the applications won't change far from the current look
