Bluemarine. Maybe bluemarine with the colours removed/neutralized,  
and only two column. I usually split the entire admin menu tree into  
its own "Admin" menu, enable the block, and use PHP to have it appear  
only to those with admin rights. Further, if you don't want to have  
it appear on "regular" pages, you can restrict it to show only on  
admin/* pages.
