Well, here you go.

Step 1 - create VF page like below:

<apex:page sidebar="false" showHeader="false">
  .sidebarModuleHeader h2 {
    padding: 5px 9px;
    display: block;
    background: transparent url('/img/alohaSkin/sidebar_sprite.png') -9px bottom no-repeat;
 .sidebarModuleHeader {
    padding: 0;
    color: #fff;
    background: #1797c0 url('/img/alohaSkin/sidebar_sprite.png') -209px -2px no-repeat;
        background-color: green;
 .sidebarModule {
    background: #cfeef8 url('/img/alohaSkin/sidebar_sprite.png') -9px bottom no-repeat;

        <div class="recentItemModule sidebarModule">
            <div class="sidebarModuleHeader brandPrimaryBgr">
                <h2 class="brandPrimaryFgr">Support</h2>
            <div class="sidebarModuleBody">
                <div class="SidebarShortcut">
                    <div class="mruItem">
                            <li><a href="/item1">Item 1</a></li>
                            <li><a href="/item2">Item 2</a></li>
                            <li><a href="/item3">Item 3</a></li>

Step 2 - create Home Page Component and make sure "Show label" is unchecked(this hides the component header that is outside of an iframe.)

Look at the VF page above. There is line <h2 class="brandPrimaryFgr">Support</h2> this will be your header.

Step 3 - Edit your HTML and CSS styles depending on your requirement.

Hope this helps you.

  • I believe even the background of item1, 2,3 can be changed from sky blue to some other color. Commented May 4, 2016 at 5:59

Hi @Sid it can't be possible even I'm also try to change background color of homepage and apps Selection.But previously it is supported with custom visualforce page.

But It's disabled by salesforce.Even you try to add that component to homepage it shows our custom code there.

Better you have to search in Lightning..
