This is built into the css file of the theme.  You would need to edit the css file or create your own custom theme.

There are three places you will want to edit to add your own custom color

I highlighted one of the colors, oe_black, but you can make a new one with the same naming structure, like oe_custom.  Create all the css attributes and then add it as an option to the snippets.xml file in the list.  It should work.  I have never personally done it...

And remember that these are not permanent changes and can be overwritten so be careful. 

Thank you Stephen. Can you please tell me exact css file. So that i can change
