In TCustomDBGrid.DrawCell, this bit of code makes the selected cell's colors conform to the settings in Windows :

        if Highlight then
        begin
          Brush.Color := clHighlight;
          Font.Color := clHighlightText;
        end;

so, if you want to use other colors, set DefaultDrawing to false, and write your own routine in the OnDrawColumnCell event. You will have to consider selected or not, fonts, alignment and focus rectangle when you 'draw' the cell yourself.
