Replace Notes app brown title bar with gray Apps
If you don't care for Apple's skeuomorphic design in Calendar and Notes in Mountain Lion, here's a way you can change Notes to use a gray titlebar and inactive buttons.

Do the following:
  • Copy Notes from /Applications to a safe place in case you want to revert back to the original.
  • Download this archive which contains a few gray graphic files.
  • Unzip the archive; it contains a folder called Notes dark grey.
  • Browse to /Applications/ in Finder. (Right-click on the Notes app and choose Show Package Contents, then go to the Resources folder.)
  • Quit Notes if it is running.
  • Copy the 5 PNG files from Notes dark grey to /Applications/
  • Restart and enjoy
[kirkmc adds: Beware that this may not work after an OS X upgrade, so you may need to do the above operation again.]

I did the same thing with Calendar and Contacts. Almost 50 files.

I'll wait until Mountain Lion Tweaks simplifies the process.
