My emacs looks ugly and weird with 2 colors in the background. It looks like "light cyan" everywhere, except "ivory" which is under and near text lines. Not sure how that is controlled. How do I fix this
... ivory would probably ok.

Some windowing environment may be attempting to overlay it's idea of
your desktop "theme" on to Emacs.

From the Emacs Wiki:

I am using KDE. I found my emacs was colored in a strange way no matter how I changed the background and foreground settings in my .Xdefaults. I tried all methods I could think of, including deleting
   my .emacs, changing the font, recustomizing my KDE environment
   through the KDE control center. But without luck.

For KDE 2.1.2, I found the option called ‘Apply fonts and colors to
   non-KDE apps’ in ‘/Look and Feel/Style’ in the control center.
   Disable it. Then logout and log in. Everything becomes fine.
