I want to change background and font color of nautilus status bar and toolbar. (I hope the bar where breadcrumbs are is the toolbar.)
I can see editing ~/.gtkrc-2.0 helps in changing sidepane as well as other widgets but can't find a proper example.

Can you get a screen-grab of the image you're interested in changing? –  belacqua Feb 24 '11 at 4:13
    
@jgbelacqua Kinda :) But I am still looking for some written scripts. Thanks for your links –  sagarchalise Mar 11 '11 at 5:55

I modified the ambiance-theme to dark toolbars (including nautilus, banshee etc..) and some other changes as smaller scrollbars. My changes are based on the Wasp theme (see gnome-look).

It looks like this: nautilus with dark toolbar

You can find the whole theme here: ambiance theme with dark toolbar

The icons are a personal mix of AwOken and Faenza. I can publish it, if you are interessted.

My modified gtkrc for ambiance:

gtk-color-scheme = "base_color:#ffffff\nfg_color:#4c4c4c\ntooltip_fg_color:#ffffff\nselected_bg_color:#7EA2B8\nselected_fg_color:#FFFFFF\ntext_color:#3C3C3C\nbg_color:#F2F1F0\ntooltip_bg_color:#000000\nlink_color:#7EA2B8"

This page has been suggested before : Gnome Theming Tutorial.
I find this one more comprehensible, but I'm not sure what piece of the puzzle you need. I'm hoping it gets you pointed in the right direction.

Also, you might look at this earlier question :
Changing the sidepane background color in Nautilus
and possibily this one:
What can I change with gtkrc-2.0?
