Hi Arnold,

You should set background-image and background-color to none !important;,  in rfdSelect CSS class, e.g.
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <style type="text/css">
           background-color: Red !important;
           background-image: none !important;
        /* Items */
        .rfdSelectBox li
            background-color: Blue !important;
            background-image: none !important;
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="RadFormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="All" Skin="Black" />
        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddList1" runat="server">
            <asp:ListItem Text="Item1"></asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem Text="Item2"></asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem Text="Item3"></asp:ListItem>
