Some time ago, Paulo José proposed a more radical design of LibreOffice GUI including Faenza icons in it. You may take a look here

Symbolic icons proposed in GNOME project are also far better than the current icons, but I agree some colors may improve their usability.

Having a new clean and neat GUI for LibreOffice it's more than necessary and maybe you could show us some mock-ups following a specific idea before starting to change all the icons.

The Flat icon set was not intended to be exactly monochrome. In fact, each
icon would be monochrome, for example, text related icons would be blue,
image related would be green etc etc. I do not find any more the proposal
(seems it was mirek that made most of it), but I relly liked the idea.

Hello Lirodon,

Sorry for the blank email earlier.

A flatter icon set could look good on Windows 8 too, primarily because of
the generally flatter look everywhere. But don't make things too flat and
boring: remember when everyone complained about how Visual Studio 2012
looked in early builds before they changed the monochrome icons to subtle
colored ones?


I'm not inherently against colors. We can easily make flat icons with
colors in mind, just keep them clean and minimalistic :)
