I use this one - - it is called Modern Admin and it really gives you a lot of functionality! It is flat-retina ready template for Wordpress admin. This plugin comes with 4 color schemes, custom login form, configurable menu & dashboard icons.

Here are the features of this great plugin:

  1. Clean design and retina (like on Apple :-)) support
  2. 5 color schemes: Blue (default), Green, Red, Yellow, Purple (and more free color in the future)
  3. Custom login
  4. Custom logo text/image
  5. Choose your own icons

Try Easy Admin Color Schemes - - you can change the colors there. You can also pick and use your very own color (with color picker). I like the purple theme! :-)
