Fine by me, though it seems a bit...  drab and boring.  I think you
could say "some people don't like X" for just about any color.  I'd say
go for something pleasing to the eye, and if people don't like it, too
bad.  It's not like it takes effort to change it.

I vote for a vertical gradient using hot pink and dark brown as the two
end-colors.  Kidding!
