I'm not a fan of the huge page in the background - even with it faded
out it still distracts from the content above it. The bright red banner
is a bit too brash too and some of the different colour shades clash.

I mocked up a variant on your styling to illustrate a potential
alternative approach:


There's essentially only 2 colors used there - the orange from the
QEMU logo is used for links when you hover/click them. That orange
then has lightness value reduced, so give the darker orange for
header and non-active links. That ensures the relative color mix
between the two is consistent, avoiding clashing color.
