I recommend that kind of color scheme. It's really pleasant for the eyes to see all in grayscale.
Personally, when using VSCode I use Verdandi theme. In VIM, I haven't found a greyscale scheme. Could you share with me the name of the color scheme you're using? :D thanks!

Emilie mentioned using a fork of vim-code-dark. Maybe you can find it on the linked GitHub account.

If not, the only greyscale color scheme for vim I know is jaredgorski/fogbell.vim

Fogbell was something I investigated as well, but I found it didn't have enough levels of contrast and the highlighting groups were a bit off for me.

There's a whole collection of greyscale (or minimal color) themes at mcchrish/vim-no-color-collection that you might like to also check out.

My personal edit's not on GitHub yet, but I've just uploaded the vim file to this gist if you'd like to check it out, Kevin :)

I've found sunbather on that list. I like it. I guess I'll start using it. Currently, I use Iceberg.vim but it already bored me.
This is a screenshot of the sunbather. Lovely

Looks cool - has an extra pop of colour that I might look into as well!
