Unfortunately documentation is really sparse and it took my some effort
to figure this out. What you are supposed to do is create a style
provider and use it to load some css with colors and effects you want.
What I did is the following:

  * Set a unique widget names which we can use in the css.
  * Create css which uses these unique widget names (eg
#MyUniqueWidgetName GtkTreeView:selected)
  * Create a GtkStyleProvider and load the css (css can be inline or in
a file)
  * Attach the style provider to the GtkStyleContext
