Please help me in designing the review and critique of this page

I am a programmer, and a designer gave me an image of a webpage. I made it and everything is OK, but I don't like this template's folders and article icon design.

and this is my template:

rifae

This is picture of folder icon:

folder Icon


and This is article icon:

article Icon



When a user clicks on the folder icon, the website shows the sub folder of that folder, like all operating systems

I think the icons (folder icon, article icon) should be designed as Philosophical and islimi(Arabesque).

A screenshot of the page when I click on the folder icons is shown below (sub folder):

ajax reloading template

all of the folders have some sub folders too.

and please suggest me a good color for folder icon and article icon to have contrast with template

For sub folder, why don't you create a and image of a folder "creeping" out of another folder? –  SaturnsEye May 8 at 14:16
    
thanks @SaturnsEye, can you show me how is that? i can't understand –  Kermani May 8 at 14:17
    
@Kermani So you are looking to change the design of the icons so they have a more Arabesque Style to them? Is that all? –  Ryan May 8 at 14:46
    
Yes And I plan to be philosophical because it is philosophically website –  Kermani May 8 at 14:48

Just a VERY rough idea just for your sub folder situation:

I know you don't like the original design of the folder itself but you could apply a similar method as I've done here to your final folder design to emphasize the folder being a "sub" folder of another.

Thank you, I understand, can you please suggest me a good color too –  Kermani May 8 at 14:42
    
@Kermani It really depends what colours you want to use. May I suggest using Kuler to help give you better ideas on matching up colours to work better with each other. –  SaturnsEye May 8 at 14:51
    
I need a color to have contrast with whole template and be comfortable –  Kermani May 8 at 14:53
