Well, I attempted to assist and tried changing some backgrounds colors. But, no use. I guess you must use another skin to change it only, sorry.

EDIT:
Yo!
At least you could change the line's color! By doing the following steps:

1. ACP. Advanced mode.
2. Display tab.
3. Colors, under Pictures and Colors. On the left menu.
4. You'll notice multiple fields to change colors. Search for a box which is called: Table header. After finding it, search for 'Forum line color' IN THE SAME BOX THOUGH!
5. Then you may change the color to the one you like.

Hi!

I think that that Purple stuff around the categories are actually an Image

By Inspecting, It might be this image: http://hitskin.com/themes/11/84/64/i_back_catg.jpg

So I suggest, to try and remove it @ the CSS stylesheet

Hope I helped in anyway. :p

Go ti AP >> Display >> Colors >> CSS
Find this and remove the photo link
Code:
td.cat, td.catBottom, td.catHead, td.catLeft, td.catRight, td.catSides {
    background-color: #63080C;
    background-image: url("http://hitskin.com/themes/11/84/64/i_back_catg.jpg");
    border: medium solid #63080C;
    height: 28px;
}
It will remove the purple colour.

The purple color is the photo. When you remove the photo than you can change the background-color: #your code here; to the coluor you want in that CSS part.
Change this
Code:
background-color: #63080C;
You must remove the photo to have the colour change. Do it where ever you wont, or through panel or through CSS I gave you.

Hi, the last purple line can be removed by adding this to your CSS code:

Code:
th {
    background-color: #000000;
    background-image: url("");
    color: #FBF9F9;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-weight: bold;
    height: 25px;
    padding: 2px 3px;
}

I presume you have custom CSS so please search for "th {" first before adding it. Wink
