I created this in the hope that more people would notice this little inconsistency with Banshee. It doesnt paint themes properly to the rest of my gnome desktop nor does it use the typical toolbars like most gnome apps such as Eog Rhythmbox and Abiword. It really is the open office of media players in my opinion! versatile but poorly integrated!
So I set off creating a mockup using the osliner Radiance theme as a base
1) redesigning the toolbar in a style more typical to gnome and
2)painting it in the gtk theme in how it "should look" if it painted it properly and not its current implementation which seems to be using custom widgets and toolbar layouts and simply grabbing the colors of the theme and some other elements to create an alien look.
Hopefully it will spark interest or curiosity on how Banshee handles themes and why its designed in its current form.
Banshee would be truly awesome if it did just a little bit more when it comes to fitting into your Desktop!
I also have a concept for unused space in the now playing area coming shortly
