One option of the out of the box designs in Excel
PT per se are extremely powerful but without proper design options their basic objective is very limited: Show/present data in a clear and easy way in order to quickly draw conclusions and make it visually appealing.
Excel has solved this in the Design Ribbon with a series of colour combinations with which the user can play around, changing the colours on the fly. In Calc I haven't seen anything like this.
I know I can format the colour of individual cells but the point here is to create a consistent colour/format combination .
I think there is a lot of potential to actually beat Excel in two ways:
1. Apart from the predefined designs in Excel you can theoretically create your own design template but for me it hasn't worked at all, so if Calc get's this right we would take the lead
2. Implementing a way that users can actually create a design/colour template, export and share it would improve Calc exponentially. When it comes to design and looks the power of the community is unbeatable
What says UX?
I would say "yes" :) Thanks for filing Marcos.
Could you help with working out specific (partial) design goals?

Added this topic to our to-do list. However, I don't think we should follow Microsoft blindly, and color is not the primary method of UI design ;-).
We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval

Modified pivot styles
Checking back old UX tickets this one popped up. Actually we have pivot styles for category, corner, field, result, title, and value, and we could change the default styles and introduce background colors. Not the preferred approach, IMHO.
Another option is to have more than one style, meaning not only Default but also Rainbow, or the like, and means to quickly change all properties.
So this ticket is either a WFM or we should change its direction (probably there is also a duplicate).
