Where can i get hold of the CSS of the admin panels? Id like to make it look different on my development environment so that no one changes the production server by mistake. Like giving it a different background-color.

you can use Blue Admin plugin for this and many more for the dashbord customisation – Vikas Gautam Oct 1 '13 at 12:18

One way is to enqueue a style.css for the admin panel.

Create a file to say custom-css.css and add css to it and then enqueue it to the admin by putting the below in the theme's function.php file.

function admin_enqueue() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'custom_css', content_url() . '/themes/theme-name/custom.css');
    //Please replace the path with the correct path to the file in your theme 
add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', 'admin_enqueue' );
