Thanks everyone for the great feedback!

So there's two options I see now:
1) keep the default header scheme with white background, just add the project logo into the corner
2) try to adapt to the Patternfly scheme as used in oVirt's Admin UI currently.

I've swapped the header background color to #393f45 as used in oVirt for a quick test:

Is this more readable? If yes - I can continue working in this direction to add gradients
and other patternfly style elements. Otherwise I'll just go with option 1 and stick to the default style we have now.

Well.. keep it as it is or make it really dark (like the patternfly menu). I do not care about logos but big area filled with non-neutral color is always going to be an issue.

Would it be possible to use more darker colors (at least for top banner/menu)?
For example darker colors we use in oVirt engine welcome page ...

Thanks for the feedback,
It will help if someone can suggest an alternate CSS which we can use or specific color codes,
otherwise it will be long trial and error process until we'll find something that will suite everyone.

I agree with Milan here. The light green background makes the menu
items to be almost unreadable, the search button (slightly different
green color) blends with the background and generally the color pulls
my eyes away from the content. I wouldn't feel comfortable looking at
the screen for a whole day.
