There are applications that help you to customize your desktop, like
changing colors, scrollbar styles, etc separately. IE independently of used
theme. But I don't know about Mate. I use Cinnamon and I'm pretty happy
with the already existing themes.
Gnome-color-chooser works with many desktops, I think GTK+ based only.
