thanks for the pointer Stuart but I still need a bit more help choosing a color scheme.

If I head over to Options->Libreoffice->Colors I can see the RGB values for colors. EG Gray2 detailed below (1450253) is shown as R:221, G:221, B:221. I don't see the tie in between the RGB numbers and the number I need to enter in options.

when I am finished with a doc I exit the doc and LO leaves me with a
display containing tiles of my recent files. Up to my most recent dev
version of 5.0 the background was a slightly off white colour with the
files tiled on top of this. The background is now a dull grey colour
which quite frankly looks awful.

Is there anywhere to change the background of the tiled view (ie. not
application specific)?

That is the new Design & UX-advise approved color pallet for the StartCenter
at 5.0. Also new for the 5.0 release are Expert Configuration stanzas to
change those colors.

Tools -> Options -> Advanced: Expert Configuration button

Enter "StartCenter" in the search bar.

You'll want these stanzas, values are from RGB hex values converted to
decimal integer--reverse the process to convert RGB colors of your choice
a enter the decimal integer value (i.e. use MS calculator in Programmer
mode to convert).:

StartCenterThumbnailsHighlightColor  (default 1450253 --> #16210d or
LibreOffice Gray2)
StartCenterThumbnailsBackgroundcolor (default 6701886 -->  #66433e or
LibreOffice Gray7)

See  tdf#90452
