I recommend installing
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:numix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install numix-icon-theme-shine numix-icon-theme-circle

Then just use Unity Tweak to change the appearance.

It would be nice if the look was more varied, but I think they went with 
the OSX approach in that it has a light and darkish theme.
