You can set a different style scheme in org.pantheon.scratch.settings.style-scheme

See this link for how to edit a setting in dconf https://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/a/176/37

Schemes are located in /usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles and the preinstalled schemes are

  • solarized-light (default)
  • classic
  • kate
  • solarized-dark
  • cobalt
  • oblivion
  • tango

Here are more style-schemes listed https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GtkSourceView/StyleSchemes
