  • If you go to Tools > Options > Workspace you can change from Expression dark to Expression light.  Although, the light can be right awful to look at. 

    I usually just give my LayoutRoot a contrasting background color while designing and simply chage it back to none when I've completed setting up the control.

  • If we're talking about Blend, you can keep the "Dark" theme and just change your artboard background via Tools > Options > Artboard > Background > Color

    Or you can plop Background="Color" on your parent panel like Christine pointed out for the instance.
