Bug Description

The xdg folder icons[16px] in the side pane , are very similar to action icons or mime icons

Ex:
Downloads folder > go down action icon
Pictures,Music,Videos folders > image , audio , video mime
Documents > similar to copy action icon

This could be very confusing to new users , also to an average user , who is new to Ubuntu.

This confusion can be avoided if there was a folder in the background ,[ even a faint hint of the folder or a folder at 50% opacity would be ideal.]

An example of how a folder in the background could provide better representation of the side pane icon being a folder.

I don't think these icons are confusing taken in context. They exist in the "Places" sidebar. So, obviously, they are places.
