Loïc Descotte shared via Twitter an excellent color scheme for IntelliJ inspired by Monokai color scheme.

IntelliJ Darcula + Monokai

You can grab it at the following link (Monokai color scheme) or get the complete corresponding settings jar file here.

Setup is simple, under OS X you have to do the following (and then select the corresponding color scheme in settings) :

cp ~/Downloads/GreaterMonokai.xml ~/Library/Preferences/IntelliJIdea12/colors/
Or you can simply import the jar containing the settings via the File > Import Settings... menu item in IntelliJ. The next time you'll restart your IDE, you should notice the change. The only thing I changed is the font size, 14pt is too big for me, I turned it to 12pt.
