GnuCash still uses GTK2, and you may not have any GTK2 themes installed.  Breeze, the KDE theme, has also been ported to GTK2/GTK3 (, though it may require installation of a separate package; on my Gentoo system, it's called kde-plasma/breeze-gtk, and pulled in by kde-plasma/plasma-meta.  You could also install more GTK2-only themes; on Gentoo, the GTK2-default package is called x11-themes/gtk-engines, but there are about a dozen more.
