make nautilus in debian look like ubuntu

hey, I just installed debian on my computer and I'm keeping Gnome. I'm used to using fluxbox with xfe as my browser. I remember from ubuntu that nautilus was much different from the standard debian version. I was wondering if anyone knew how to make it more like ubuntu's looks like:
-places bar
-non multiple windows for a new folder
stuff like that.
thank you in advance.
