    I can see you have also opened a different thread related to the same question, it can be found here: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1049082 

    On that thread you will find the steps  to change the background color of the field container, if you would like to change the background color of the required message container as well then you would need to inject this CSS code: 

    .form-line-error .form-error-message{

        background-color:orange;

    }

     

    .form-line-error .form-error-message .form-error-arrow {

        border-bottom-color: orange;

    }

    Replace the "orange" color with the one you need, this guide will help you to inject the code to your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes 

    Hope this helps.
