bendsurgerycenterfoundation.org The backgrounds of two pages have changed from blue to pink...Home and About.  I have attempted to change them in the Background Color menu back to blue, but they still come up pink.  I have refreshed my page (Chrome) and looked at the site in Firefox to make sure it was not a browser issue....still pink.  Have changed it to a different color - even a pattern, but just comes back pink. Saved, published.  Still pink. I believe this is a Homestead bug?  
How can I get it addressed.  Image included of the background menu with blue selected.

You can chose a color, a pattern or an image. No combinations. You must select the background for each page > Save > Publish. After performing this process: F5 or use Shft/Ctrl/Delete to clear browser history.
Using this procedure intermittently provides solutions to cache and cookie related interference. A browser works by downloading a page to your computer. Browsers will then show the page from your computer as opposed to downloading it every time you visit the page. This speeds up the process and lessens the traffic on the Internet. Depending on the browser, it will periodically check the website for a new version of the page and download it if it has changed. If you don't see a change that you expect, then press F5. That tells the browser to go to the site and download the page now.

Thank you for your response.  But I have refreshed the browser and tried IE, FF in addition to Chrome.  I teach on week on browser technology in an Internet course I teach at the college here each term and spent 10 years with Cisco.
I solved it by creating a Gif the color I wish using Photoshop and then using the Custom background with that color.  So not an issue for me any more.

After selecting your background choice, review that menu for another element that may need to be used to initiate the selection. I used SB+ for years but don't currently. I do not have the program to review the process. Sorry, that's all I have. It does have some peculiarities but never impossible.

I am glad you got it straightened out. I believe the issue is that you have a background color specified in the header. Pages settings > Advanced > Head.
