That's a "theme" or a "skin".

I must disagree there, since desktop projects DO include such apps, and often 
the development, refinement, and integration of such apps is what shapes a 
desktop and all of its libraries.  Perhaps you're confusing desktops like KDE 
and GNOME with the much simpler Window Managers.
