Do you want to do this for KDE, Gnome or another environment? What exactly do you want this theme to be - just a new wallpaper, wallpaper + icons, and so on.

To begin with: and and are good places to start.

There's no such thing as a desktop environment theme.

There are window manager themes (GNOME uses Metacity, KDE uses KWin), widget toolkit themes (GNOME uses GTK+, KDE uses Qt), and icon themes.
