Looks better then the default Catia like style ;)
To match the material with the background simply add a bit of blue to the ambient color and a bit yellow to the specular, like the railmaterial, looks nice for a screenshot. There is also a bit of anti aliasing in some of the screenshots, its done by overriding settings in the graphics card settings.

Edit: didn't notice carlod's answer! I'm keeping mine as I'm giving the link to the original reply.

I had some time on lunch hour to hunt down the author of the screenshot. He did give the color codes for his background gradient, see this reply:
