As for colors, painting the wall in one color and pigmenting the texture with another approximate color is a good choice and gives a very nice look at the end.
Or pigment with a color that gives a very strong contrast with the background color also works, but it is good to be careful and research them first, as the color difference may not work so well in practice.
It is also possible to do with the white texture and only a sealer in the background. There are many possibilities in terms of colors, so it’s good to analyze the environment a lot to see if you ask for something more flashy or more discreet, bold or traditional.
