the Curses theme is using your terminal emulator's theme, which is why
the ui.set_theme is usually wrapped like

if not CURSES then ui.set_theme(...) end

You could try using one of the base16-themes for Textadept[1], there are
also variants for various terminals[2], so you could try using one of
these in your terminal emulator.

Not sure whether this would give you the exact same colors for all
styles though.
