So in short, your focus is on having the windows and widgets step back
behind the content, to not stress the eyes more than necessary during
long-time use.

An endurance theme.

I think your color choices should work well under these considerations.
Looking at the screenshots, I would like to suggest to reduce the
contrast of the toolbar gradients. They are rather loud in this context.

Please consider using different colors on prelight of the window
buttons. The Circle-of-Friends trio doesn't fit to the functionality and
the colors are rather close to each other. I suggest using a cool color
for minimize.
