You should try Aurora engine and Aurora Themes before (v1.3 AND 1.4)
some of them here (please check links from the page) 
(Aurora Borealis is a good example).

A .deb with the new Aurora Engine (v.1.4) 

Over other themes Aurora has a strong point that many nice themes ignore 
to fix (scrollbars are visible and visually unobtrusive and ..apart of 
well known gtk2 standard scrollbar).

Also clear-looks was almost perfect in Gummy version but now I see 
Andrea change back active tabs gradients into a colored line (gradient 
was OK ..and modern).
