You can tweak it using GTK+ CSS. In a file at 
`~/.config/geany/geany.css` (Tools->Configuration Files->geany.css) you 
can put some CSS similar to the stuff between line 12 and line 26 
here[0], adapted for your needs. It's hard to be specific without seeing 
exactly what you're talking about.

Alternatively, you could probably just switch GTK+ themes.
