Add site logo and choose background colour

When you hover your mouse over the page header you get an Add logo option where you can upload or select a logo for your site that will appear in the navigation area of the site see Site Logo.

Custom theme colour

Once you upload a logo you can Edit logo to pick a colour based on the logo. Alternatively you can pick any accent colour for the site from the Theme panel and then use the custom colour picker: Custom Theme Colour.
