That's why there is the Symbolic-Inverted icon theme. Its icons are created by 
inverting the Symbolic ones (the reason why current GIMP builds take so long) 
and contrast quite well with the light themes.

You can shrink the toolbox down even further by switching the various icon 
themes. I'd say that none of the switching should change any window sizes.
