>> GnomishBeige Theme for Gnome Shell:

gnome shell themes ubuntu

This is a clean beige theme for GTK3, based on Adwaita (provided by gnome-themes-standard), plus a matching GNOME-Shell theme.
The package also includes a GTK2 theme, that depends on the latest Murrine engine and makes GTK2 windows fairly similar to GTK3 ones. If you don't want to install Murrine anymore, you could replace the folder 'gtk-2.0' with that of Adwaita but you'll lose the above-mentioned similarity.
