K20D LCD color tuning

I know where to find this feature, and I understand what it's for and how to adjust it, but what do you tune it to? In other words, I'm looking at the screen for this feature and I see the solid grey on the bottom half and a grey gradient on the upper half and wondering if I need to tune the LCD color to a grey card or to some other object? Or is the answer looking me in the face?

Excuse my ignorance on this matter - I understand practically everything else about this camera, but the manual in certain respects is pitiful, like in this instance.

What I did is take a series of shots showing different colors and then uploaded them onto my mac. Viewed them on LR and adjusted the default rendering to what I found neutral. Then I tuned the LCD of my K20D to match it.

I found my K20D's LCD too much on the blue side (if I remember correctly).
