You would go to your css file and target all the h1 elements like this.

h1{
 color:(insert color value)
  }

here you could use various methods of using the color of your choice If you want to target certain h1 elements then you would give them a class and use a class selector instead on your css file

Should be able to open your Style Sheet and then

h1 { color: blue; }

should be the proper syntax. Let me know if more information is needed.
