Post [Q] Status Bar Theming - How to get the pure Google look?

Hi all, quick question.

Does anyone know can I make the status bar on my Galaxy S4 look like the status bar did on the Nexus 7, Nexus 5, Nexus 4, etc.. when they ran Android 4.3? I really like the blue UI elements and would like to get that UI on my GS4.

My Galaxy S4 is currently rooted on 4.3. Stock ROM, bootloader, etc...

Is this mod a simple .apk installation, or something far more complex?

I have a background in theming and modifying UI elements in iOS (as I was an avid iPhone user from 2008 to mid-2013), but this is my first time wanting to modify the looks of my Android device. Any help, links, or guidance is much appreciated!

I've attached a screenshot of my device's lockscreen with white status bar icons, and I've also attached an screenshot from a Nexus device with the blue UI elements that I'm desiring.

Yes definitely grab wanam. You can do what you want, actually mine looks kinda like what you're going for, and its really easy to do.
