Yes, I mean for the buttons to blend in more with the brown background. 
This is the case on the current industrial themes and the different 
clearlooks 2 themes. So I would suggest fading it more into the 
background more, but have it become clear on hover. (also can the 
buttons become become larger, easier targets? -- having less border 
space above and below them). Also, when hovering, perhaps the X button 
could get a red tint?

But it's looking good. I really like the slightly lighter tones and the 
subtle stripes. I posted a screenshot of it here:
