Today, I was toying around with the theme colours on my Nokia Lumia 920, and I wondered: why do we have to choose between black and white as the background colour? What if Microsoft added grey to the possible choices? I decided to mess around in Photoshop to see what it would like like, and this is the result:
What do you guys think? Pretty cool, huh? Let's hope MS will add this colour anytime soon...
All the other theme colours with grey backgrounds are on my SkyDrive: http://sdrv.ms/18Gz3rq

I agree 100% with this. Its frustrating how limiting MS is with simple options like background colors. Why can't I pick individual colors for tiles? Why can't I have a color wheel so I can choose any color I want? I don't understand it, but hopefully they'll add more stuff in 8.1

I get that WP8 might have different code, but if you had Focus or HD7 with WP7 you could dev/interop unlock it and use custom colors for tiles or backgrounds. And it never seemed to break anything. If you chose a weird color combo sometimes it would be hard to see the app tile or words, but then you just changed your colors and all was good.

My ENTRY level - Android phone had a launcher that provided me with such SEXY colour combinations.
Yellow tiles with BLACK text. Unlike white, which is barely readable :-/
Also gave options to set a background, and set a transparency to the tiles.
I was really disappointed and would rather the developers be able to SKIP my theme options and give us a damn color wheel already. I am BORED of most of the colours and don't use most anyway since I don't like them. -_-
