See for a description on how to
configure some aspects of the theme.

You can easily change the color in the Appearance settings.

Overall I agree with your feelings that the new theme is a regression. I
like some of the more subtle changes that have been made, but I very
much dislike the shaded toolbars, notebook tabs and the colored
scrollbars. I would very much welcome if some of this bling could be
turned off by default to give the next GNOME release a more polished
default look. But then, of course, this is mainly just personal taste.
