To change the color of TODO states, you can use the variable
org-todo-keyword-faces. Here's an example from my own settings:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-todo-keyword-faces
  	 ("TODO"  . (:foreground "firebrick2" :weight bold))
         ("WAITING"  . (:foreground "olivedrab" :weight bold))
  	 ("BORROWED"  . (:foreground "olivedrab" :weight bold))
  	 ("ORDERED"  . (:foreground "olivedrab" :weight bold))
    	 ("LATER"  . (:foreground "sienna" :weight bold))
   	 ("PROJECT"  . (:foreground "steelblue" :weight bold))
 	 ("DONE"  . (:foreground "forestgreen" :weight bold))
 	 ("RETURNED"  . (:foreground "forestgreen" :weight bold))
 	 ("RECEIVED"  . (:foreground "forestgreen" :weight bold))
 	 ("RESOLVED"  . (:foreground "forestgreen" :weight bold))
 	 ("MAYBE"  . (:foreground "dimgrey" :weight bold))
 	 ("CANCELED"  . (:foreground "dimgrey" :weight bold))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

To customize a line in the agenda, simply type M-x customize-face on
that line and emacs should take you to the correct customization buffer.

Or you can add lines such as the following to your .emacs file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(set-face-foreground 'org-warning "firebrick2")
(set-face-foreground 'org-todo "firebrick2")
(set-face-foreground 'org-done "forestgreen")
(set-face-foreground 'org-scheduled-today "limegreen")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Hope this helps,
