I have been searching for a theme with these conditions:
- GTK 3.8 compatible
- dark (preferably black) menu background color, light (white) working area
- item selection in menu should be well readable
- scrollbar should have high contrast (dark grey on grey is not)
I have tried many but could not find the perfect fit. Currently I use Clearlooks-Phenix but it is only GTK 3.6 compatible and the menu background color is white. Any recommendation?
EDIT: BorderLineGtk3 is almost ok, but Geany is really not nice.

how about numix?
although the contrast on scrollbar is not the best around
Yes the problem is the scrollbar.
There are some close candidates around and I have found a tutorial on how to make gtk3 themes so probably I will try to make some changes in one.
Siva Flat (I use the dark variant)

(The theme needs to be patched for gnome 3.8)
GTK 3.8 fixes: http://fpaste.org/27171/57087413/
$ cd siva_flat_1_3_0_by_nale12-d5ugpl4
$ patch -p1 --input=siva_flat_gtk_3-8.patch
Thanks for the suggestions, I have found this one which is very close to what I was looking for: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Evolve-GT … -264780816
EDIT: xoraxium also has a gtk 3.8 version FlatStudio theme: https://github.com/xoraxiom/openbox-gtk-themes

This is the one I use myself:
GTK 2 + 3, works perfect.
We all make choices, but in the end, our choices make us.
