So do I.

Are you talking of a dark theme or light theme?  Did you take a look at Emacs
color themes, and their customization for Org?  See, for example, mine at
http://orgmode.org/worg/color-themes-screenshot.html#sec-1-4 [1].

In that page, you'll find:

- 6 dark themes
- 1 gray theme
- 1 light theme

Best regards,


[1] I should update my color-theme code and screenshot on Worg, as my color
theme has varied over the last months.
