Flat themes don't work visually on KDE - too much clutter. The eyes fight to distinguish between layers and sections.
No criticism of your work though - just a general point about flat themes, from a personal point of view.

Maybe I'll do a few color schemes for this theme.

I understand, but for me Flat design associated with the order, readability and clarity. Here I tried to compromise by different layers and sections not merged. I wanted to pay attention to color contrasts and were clearly visible and tidy and clear, but not oversaturated and candy as the default Oxygen or similar, which I do not like.

Thus, it has to be
- Clearly and transparently
- Functional and without satiety
- Color contrasts to pay attention

The taste is not discussed;).
