There only two appearance settings that can be configured in Aperture 3.3 and later, all from the "Preferences" panel, "Appearance" tab:
- Adjusting the "Viewer" and "Browser" brightness you can change the background of the browser and viewer to different shades of gray, from white to black.
- You can have a corkboard behind the "Faces" view, if you want
To get coloured icons like in Aperture 3.2, the only way is to modify the contents of the Aperture applications bundle. The icons are tiff images in the "Resources" folder inside the package. That is a lot of work, and a risky operation, and you would have to do it over and over again, each time you install an update.

I think I'm getting OK with the general grey tone to the overall interface but the option of coloured icons would have been nice. Perhaps its not to detract from the glorious colour of our images:) Note that the preferences icons in the toolbar above the 'Appearance' tab you've posted are coloured in the standard Apple way though!

That is exactly, why many posters here are quite happy with the new design.
I prefer the icons in the library source list to be colored. That makes it a lot easier to distinguish folders, albums, books, etc. at a glance. So I added a touch of color to all of them.
