Perhaps that would be worth a shot for you?
Well, apart from the transparency & style different in the taskbar, I don't see any changes on the window title button styles and the boring flat gradient gray.
I have the opinion that Oxygen could reach perfection if:
1) Window buttons were like in gnome-shell's adwaita, with a corresponding color when you hover the pointer on them.
2) Dialog buttons abolish the icons.
3) Possibly not include or turn off icons on menus for the KDE UI, but not for applications, at a first glance...
4) Bigger dialog buttons would help too. I think they are too small. (and no, I won't try Qt emulation of GTK).
5) An intermediate cursor size in oxygene cursor theme - there is default (small) and big, which is really huge IMO. There should be an intermediate size between these two.
