In the Block Settings menu, there are two fields that will allow you to change the color of the block.

        1. The Outer Color field will allow you to change the color of the area of the block where no elements will reside.
        2. The Inner Color field will allow you to change the color of the area of the block where there the elements reside.

For both fields, you can change the colors by selecting a color in the field, by inputting a hex code, or by inputting RGB color values.
