The man page has details on how to set the colours for blist attributes,
message timestamps and message attribution. Specifically:

color-available = green; black
color-away = blue; black
color-idle = gray; black
color-offline = red; black
color-message-sent = cyan; default
color-message-received = red; default
color-message-highlight = black; green
color-message-action = yellow; default
color-timestamp = blue; default
#See below for details on color

These were introduced in 2.4.0.
