Default Different Page Colors

Is it possible to have different colors for each page in a document?

There isn’t a way within Word to colour pages differently but one known, not very practical, workaround is to insert a Rectangle Shape with a colour of your choice into each page.
The shape is stretched across the page using the side/corner handles. A shape can be duplicated by pressing the Ctrl + D keys and then the duplicate is dragged to the next page saving time on inserting.
Individual inserted Shapes can then be coloured different via the right click menu or by the Format tab > Shape Fill. Each is then placed/sent/wrapped behind the text.

Printing these background colours would be rather expensive if a user wanted to actually print the coloured pages out. Not only is the printer being instructed to print the text, but the page colour also.
The paper could become saturated with ink and the text may well be very blurry where the colours have ‘bled’.
Note: Most printers by default have their own page border, usually around 3mm, so printing a page with a colour will have a white page border.
Some printers can print borderless but this option may only come into play when a particular paper is selected, e.g. photographic/high quality/archival types.
Selecting say an archival paper (for the borderless option), but using an optimised paper created for say laser/inkjet printers will most definitely saturate the paper and perhaps render it unacceptable.
A high quality paper could be used but the costs will sky rocket.

Coloured paper is often used to achieve coloured pages in printed out documents, but the colours are limited to a manufacturers product.
