# Beamer customization - itemize not changing color

I am trying to recreate this presentation in beamer. I finally made a proper header, but for some reason my itemize items won't change color. Here is a code sample

%&latex

,10pt]{beamer}

\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsthm,amssymb}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{bbm}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage[croatian]{babel}
\usepackage{ucs}
%\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\usepackage[scaled]{uarial}
\renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault} %% Only if the base font of the document is to be sans serif
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{subfigure}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{time}
\usepackage{extarrows}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{framed}
\usepackage[tracking=true,kerning=true,spacing=true,babel=true]{microtype}
\usepackage{tikz}

\definecolor{siva}{RGB}{147,162,153}
\definecolor{crvena}{RGB}{210,83,60}
\definecolor{ljub}{RGB}{87,87,110}
\definecolor{flatblue}{RGB}{0, 82, 156}

\usecolortheme[named=flatblue]{structure}
\usetheme{Rochester}

\setbeamercolor*{itemize items}{bg=siva,fg=siva}
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[circle]
\usefonttheme{professionalfonts}
\setbeamerfont{frametitle}{family=\sffamily, shape=\upshape}

\setbeamercolor*{author}{fg=white}

{\hspace*{-0.5cm}{
\begin{tikzpicture}
\draw[white,line width=0.12cm] (-1,6) -- (14,6);
\draw[siva,line width=0.51cm] (-1,6.31) -- (14,6.31);
\end{tikzpicture}
}}

\begin{document}

\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=crvena}
