Double-click the layer thumbnail in the Layers Panel to bring up the Layer Options.
You can change the highlight color there.

The selection indicator color of an object depends on the layer where the object is. The color can be changed in Layer options. You find it for ex. in the panel menu of the Layer's panel. Create a new layer there and you can input directly the wanted selection color. An example:

Layer 1 has the default color (=blue). I created Layer 2 and set its color to red.

When you draw a new item select at first a layer for it in the Layers panel. I drew a path to both of my layers. Both paths are selected:

Layer 2 has a rectangle and Layer 1 has an ellipse.

If you move an object to another layer (=drag it in the Layers panel) its selection indication color updates. Now both paths are in Layer 1:
