Row style will override column style so you need to apply your background colors in column 1 to just the text, not the row. This is difficult to do if you're styling the all the text in the cell unless you have already added the 2nd column and text into the column.

If you select some text, or a row/column/etc, and look at the Style Attributes inspector, it will show you what and where styles are being applied that pertain to your selection. That will help you figure out what's going on.

Let me know if you need more help with this!
