The recommendation on [1] is to build the current GTK+ yourself using
jhbuild with no homebrew installed. There are instructions for it. You
may want to take a look at how gedit does things [2].

I don't know how well it blends in (haven't tried it in a while), but
you can try installing gedit and see how well gedit blends in.
