Hoping Apple doesn't go too batshit insane with the inevitable OS X redesign. I think some aspects of the UI could definitely be toned down without going 'full flat'.

This is really awesome. I think the colors and styling aren't quite heading towards the direction they want to go, but this just looks so damn good.
Yeah this is exactly how I feel. I saw a Messages concept the other day that was such a eyesore, and a complete misdirection. I really hope they stick very close to what they have now, which is why I think this shot is definitely on the money.
Flat design works for mobile devices, websites, and some web apps. But for an operating system, I'm scared of how uncomfortable using anything will be if there aren't gradients and button styles in certain places. It'll turn into a WindowBlinds skin from 2003.
I'm scared this will happen. If they turn it into anything like iOS 7 (which I think everyone maintains is bad decisions galore, even with the time we've had to adjust) it'll be such a shame.
love this! especially when it goes against flatness. :D
@Mitch Bartlett The sad thing for me is that I've lost any and all 'love' for iOS, and that in turn has extended to the hardware- the new iPads are fantastic hardware, but I simply can no longer get excited about them knowing that I'll still be stuck using iOS 7 on them.
This is very nice!
My thoughts exactly. I hope Apple will experiment more with this new, flat direction before releasing the next OSX and that it will be more mature than the current iOS.
I love what you did here.
I don't get why the compose / start new chat button is part of the search bar but the rest looks really good, without a doubt much better than the other messages concept.
Maybe if I can be picky, the tips of the bubbles could use a little bit of work but they are not bad anyways
I like it!
Great work, I really like the caption buttons
Lovely, but too fiddly maybe?. Also we want flatter ;)
We need more of this! Flat is overrated.
This is just incredible! I think this is a perfect representation of where Apple needs to take OS X.
This is great! I personally would be shocked to see Apple go completely flat, a la iOS 7, for the next release of OS X. I say this because of the differing user experiences between the operating systems. Where iOS is a much more encompassing, "full-screen" experience, OS X is very layered and much more customizable per each user. I guess what I am saying is I would be deeply disappointed to see the design languages merge.
That background doe!? Where'd you get it, it's so pleasing.
@Stephen Meszaros Thanks! Made it myself. Added a link to a larger version in the description.
@Bill Labus Thanks!
@Bill Labus Really nice stuff my man.
Great shot. I agree, not much needs to be changed but a tone down would be nice - Also, that wallpaper is sensual.
Great take! She's a beaut!
You're right to the point ! Saw the other messages app redesign, and it was so painful in the eye, but this one, this is good !
@Bill Labus I completely agree, implementing some aspects of flat design whilst still keeping it familiar would be the best way to go.
So polished… Great work!
