I have a DxNavBar component and and ViewStyle is set to "SkinNavigationPaneView".
It looks like that I cannot change styling colors (OptionsStyle). Is there anyway to change for example the background color of component and/or buttons?

The Delphi standard buttons do not change color. Either use third party or you can use a standard SpeedButton (set to transparent) and panel which supports changing color.

As an example you can download TColorButton from delphi.about:
