I've tried several themes but I kept coming back to NexTheme by Fabulous. It seems to have the right blend of color and style. Only thing I didn't like about it was the keyboard but I replaced it with HTC White Key.
Nice job Peter and Fabulous!

HTC White Key
Running Fab's xTheme with Motaboy's HTC Sense theme (removed some apps) on top. The black notificaton bar from the htc looks great and the sense theme took care of xTheme black bookmark button on my browser app. Loading bars are no longer red though, FTL.
I'll give it to you straight partner; I don't need a metaphor.
