Here you can insert your current color and get complementary and analogous colors.

This should help to find good colors for your site.

I think you should take the blue color of the head and bottom and move it closer to the blues you are using in the main area. You could even try a gradient the same as you use in the menubar, but with dark on the top and fading down to the lighter color. Same for the bottoom.

I also think you should let the lighthouse only run 6-7 times and then stop. It's very distracting to have it on all the time.

Here is an example.

I dragged the gradient from top to about one third of the distance just to get a darker tone at the top.

My main idea is not to let the header take too much attention from the main area. How about going to grey? I made an example with grey but it could also be a grey gradient between two greys.
