Ah, thanks!

I also found this line of code after an hour or so of googling:
(set-face-background 'modeline "#4477aa")

It changes the active face to blue, quite nice..

cheers,
rich

Type `M-x (i.e. Alt-X) customize-face', then return, then at the prompt
type `mode-line'.  For the non-selected buffers type `M-x
customize-face', then return, then `mode-line-inactive' the prompt.
