I was reading about the Lockheed L1011 TriStar yesterday and apparently they offered 3 color schemes for the cockpit:
1. gray, most common
2. blue, a few were spec'd this way
3. olive green, apparently none were built this way

Are there other commercial planes that offer customized cockpit colors? Of course the passenger compartments offer a multitude of options, but I had never thought much about the working part of the plane.

Aerospace companies use "Human Factors" experts when designing interiors and instrumentation layouts.

I can tell you that all current production 737's are gray, 777, 767, and possibly 747 are a brown color.

Forget the "Human Factors" experts... all I need to see is a lot of Zinc Chromate and Flat Black to feel good things are about to happen...

The C-130Es that I worked on were seafoam green and the C-130J is gray.

I'm not aware of any cockpit color options in current production airliners. The cockpit colors are all the same.

Now, there are a ton of options on each model, so overhead panels and other systems controls have slight variances among airlines...but they are minor...

And all the same color...

With more and more glass in the cockpits they are going to be able to set a theme like on a forum or in Windows, soon

Airlines can't decided whether customers want the theme "you have died and gone to heaven" or theme "welcome to the casino"... I prefer theme IP (Instructor pilot) a seat with the forward view...

Some of the mood lighting in the passenger compartments is a little too much for me. Even the purple-everywhere uniforms and interior/exterior of WOW Air planes would take some getting used to.
