We get color info for each tile from the favicon. That process is asnychronous and currently involves loading the image to analyze so can be slow (see bug 931115). The result is slightly jarring as the color draws in. 

We should either fade or transition in the colors singly, or as a group to make that process smoother on the eye.
Best viewed with patch on bug 931115, which significantly reduces the severity of the problem this bug was filed to fix - a slighty jarring and distracting build-in of the start grids as the default tile colors get swapped out for favicon-derived ones.
 
This patch simple adds transitions to the label (topsites/thumbnail tiles) and colored bar (the other tile types) so it eases in rather than just blinking in. With the reduced number of favicons to load and analyze via 931115, it seems to be enough. I've tested with cleared cache and modem-speed network emulation and it WFM.
