Colorful KDE4 theme

Hey guys!
I'm looking for a colorful theme for KDE4. I know this sounds pretty simple, but it's not quite that easy. All of the themes I have found are gray, white, or black. It has to be a light theme too, by the way. I tried modifying the svgs in air, but it doesn't look very good. I'm no designer. My main gripe is with the panel. KDE3 let me tint the panel, but that isn't the case in KDE4. Is anyone aware of a colorful theme I could use?

Try This
Then you will find a nice variety here:

I have installed Aurorae from Synaptic the package name is: kwin-style-aurorae

Then go to System Settings > Appearance > Windows
From the Drop down list choose Aurorae Decoration Theme Engine
Click on Get New Themes...

and just pick your choice

Thank you for your response. One of my biggest gripes with the default themes is the inability to change the color of the panel. Is there any way to do this using Aurorae?
