Unfortunate choice of words on my behalf, I didn't really mean the
desktop background, I meant the background of most windows (like
Nautilus, Evolution, Gedit, and so on).

Icons really isn't it.  I've changed some in Firefox, because the new
tab one just looks like a squiggle with no hint for its purpose.  I do
miss the ability that Windows gave you to modify how the current GUI
colours were set - backgrounds for this, backgrounds for that, click on
the bit you want to modify (in the config GUI), then adjust a colour;
and resize individual graphical parts of the windows, individually.

The Gnome themes are too much of an all-or-nothing approach.  You have
to trawl through lots of other people's themes, hoping to find something
you can live with.
