Calendar colour scheme

Bug Description

I've had a few people tell me they don't like the vivid green used in the calendar app. Now the guidance from canonical design was always that the shell was to be a grey/white shade and some apps have followed that. But that each app should have its own visual identity. So clock is already purple, we probably won't want to use that. And weather has the dynamic colours

But I wondered if we could explore toning down the bright green a bit?
look for some other pair of shades which could well still be green, but not quite so .. uh.. "poke your eyes out"

My opinion is that this is something that should be left after release.

I'll repeat the same comment as on the MP, but essentially I'd like to have some design input/user testing on this one, before we do any changes.

It seems the reason we're changing this is because some users found the colour scheme not pleasant. The thing is, we cannot please everyone, and I'd like to avoid a situation where we keep iterating over this while there are so many higher priority tasks to do before release.
