Windows 7: Customizing theme background color

Windows 7 32bit home
Customizing theme background color

I would like to have a multi-color background in explorer as shown in the screenshot below (courtesy of Bongo aka Jerry). Notice it has two colors, 0x1A1A1A and 0x191919.

Does anyone know how to do this? I have Windows Style Builder if that helps.

Explorer has got so many parts/classes in it that just asking for a whole redesign wouldn't help. Can you please highlight the parts in the screenshot you want to modify ?

Windows style builder and a Paint program is all you need.

It is not 2 colors, it's just the way the screenshot turn out after posting it.
