NSColor keeps all available defaults in an NSMutableDictionary called
colorStrings with default values:

                     lightGray, @"controlBackgroundColor",
                     lightGray, @"controlColor",
                     lightGray, @"controlHighlightColor",
                     white,     @"controlLightHighlightColor",
                     darkGray,  @"controlShadowColor",
                     black,     @"controlDarkShadowColor",
                     black,     @"controlTextColor",
                     darkGray,  @"disabledControlTextColor",
                     gray,      @"gridColor",
                     lightGray, @"headerColor",
                     black,     @"headerTextColor",
                     white,     @"highlightColor",
                     black,     @"keyboardFocusIndicatorColor",
                     lightGray, @"knobColor",
                     gray,      @"scrollBarColor",
                     white,     @"selectedControlColor",
                     black,     @"selectedControlTextColor",
                     lightGray, @"selectedKnobColor",
                     white,     @"selectedMenuItemColor",
                     black,     @"selectedMenuItemTextColor",
                     lightGray, @"selectedTextBackgroundColor",
                     black,     @"selectedTextColor",
                     black,     @"shadowColor",
                     white,     @"textBackgroundColor",
                     black,     @"textColor",
                     lightGray, @"windowBackgroundColor",
                     black,     @"windowFrameColor",
                     white,     @"windowFrameTextColor",
                     //gray,    @"windowFrameColor",
                     //black,   @"windowFrameTextColor",

The colours are NSStrings containing RGB floats:

  white = [NSString stringWithFormat: @"%f %f %f",
                    NSWhite, NSWhite, NSWhite];
  lightGray = [NSString stringWithFormat: @"%f %f %f",
                        NSLightGray, NSLightGray, NSLightGray];
  gray = [NSString stringWithFormat: @"%f %f %f",
                   NSGray, NSGray, NSGray];
  darkGray = [NSString stringWithFormat: @"%f %f %f",
                       NSDarkGray, NSDarkGray, NSDarkGray];
  black = [NSString stringWithFormat: @"%f %f %f",
                    NSBlack, NSBlack, NSBlack];

You may have to play around a bit to see which setting(s) affect NSBox
or NSTabView.
