Personalizing Display in Office 365

Greetings,
    I've just downloaded Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium on a couple of my computers.  The display on both monitors lacks appeal for me.  The only obvious color selections I can find in options are "white", "Light Gray", & "Dark grey".  These offer on my monitors a very light pink, light pink, darker but still light pink.  These colors show up in all the apps (Word, Excel, OneNote, etc).
   Note: My monitors are all color calibrated and I am having no color related problems with any other programs.

    Can Office 365 be "personalized" with a different color selection?

Thanks

Hello,

Don't shoot the messenger. The answer is: "No".

The Office chrome themes currently have only the options you mention and there is no way to inject customized color into them.

Rumor has it that the next Office release may contain an additional theme, but it will be just a fourth choice, not a way to modify the scheme.

If it's any consolation: You are not alone in your dislike of the offered choices.  When MVPs first tested the preview of 2013, our biggest gripe was that it was "too white". Now that I use 2013 on a daily basis with the light grey theme, I have gotten used to it. In fact, whenever I open XL 2010 I feel like the ribbon is meant for kids. All rounded and shiny.  And so many colors.

It's amazing how fast one can get used to a new color convention.

cheers, teylyn
