I will try to pick some colors for colour scheme named simply 'Livious'
:D .

I don't how it happened, but I dislike Tango! too. It is too shiny. I 
like subtle style of GNOME - light colors with darker outline.

GNOME folder icon is ugly in my opinion too. Doesn't look like folder 
at all.

I will always say to you: be GNOME-style compiliant. You can use GNOME 
icon style guidelines [1] and create Echo icon theme, which **surely** 
will 
be loved by me.

Please try this out. I want too see, how it would like.
Maybe you'll love it too?

I really, really want to see Echo with GNOME style. Would you?





[1] I think GNOME icon style guidelines are Tango!'s without glossy 
reflections http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Icon_Theme_Guidelines
