How to change audio look in interface?

The audio used to always be color beige 100%. For some reason lately it’s like the beige is in the middle and there’s grey on top/bottom of it (see picture). It’s really annoying when editing because i think it now controls the volume. My big question is how to get it back to just being 100% grey?
I’m using a Mac yosemite. Audacity 2.0.6
