You probably want guix package -i emacs-rainbow-delimiters.

(add-hook 'scheme-mode-hook 'rainbow-delimiters-mode)
(add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook 'rainbow-delimiters-mode)

Also you probably don't want to use the standard emacs theme.  It's

M-x list-packages RET

Install zenburn-theme.  (It's one of the better ones

Tweaking your Emacs takes a lifetime.  :)

You might also want to try an Emacs distribution:

- Spacemacs is beautiful!
- prelude
- Graphene
- Emacs Bootstrap
- Frontmacs
- Steve Purcell's config
  I personally cloned his a long time ago.
