I remember some years ago when playing with linux you could adjust the background color or picture independantly for each workspace, so you could have different colors on each space.
Is that possible in Ubuntu 12.04 lts ?

There is a tool called wallpapoz that will allow you to do many things with wallpapers including per workspace wallpaper.
sudo apt-get install wallpapoz
for colors I have no idea.
