I have made GUI applications in Tkinter and agree,  buttons are grey, 
and yet dialog boxes can have a number of icons in them, for warning, 
information,  in a mix of colours for example Yellow, red or green
depending on the context.

I am not sure if it is possible to add colour to the buttons,  I will
look in to it.  However there should be an agreed convention otherwise
an application with several buttons .   We should consider accessibility
on this.
