The default color for drawing objects is #729fcf (pale blue), not easy to set back after changed into something else. The suggestion is to use a named color from the standard palette - and ideally to make it configurable via Tools > Options > Colors.
+1 in addition link the color with the color plate.
Seems there are a lot of places for this color (n=257).
Closest color from the new standard is Light Blue 3, #7da7d8 but why not go with the LibreOffice typical green and use Light Lime 3?
Suggestion on the mailing list to switch from blue to green received positive resonance (it should be a color from the standard palette rather than a branding color to not always switch back and forth)
Shape color is defined in include/svx/xdef.hxx as #define COL_DEFAULT_SHAPE_FILLING 0x729fcf. Unfortunately, the hard-coded color value is spread over the source code in particular at the unit tests. Decision in ESC was to to separate default on filter from default in UI.
