Themes may not load correctly when using emacs as daemon. But you can
fix (tweak) it with

;; theme
(defvar my:theme 'distinguished)
(defvar my:theme-window-loaded nil)
(defvar my:theme-terminal-loaded nil)

(if (daemonp)
    (add-hook 'after-make-frame-functions(lambda (frame)
                       (select-frame frame)
                       (if (window-system frame)
                           (unless my:theme-window-loaded
                         (if my:theme-terminal-loaded
                             (enable-theme my:theme)
                           (load-theme my:theme t))
                         (setq my:theme-window-loaded t))
                         (unless my:theme-terminal-loaded
                           (if my:theme-window-loaded
                           (enable-theme my:theme)
                         (load-theme my:theme t))
                           (setq my:theme-terminal-loaded t)))))
    (load-theme my:theme t)
    (if (display-graphic-p)
    (setq my:theme-window-loaded t)
      (setq my:theme-terminal-loaded t))))
