The Imperial ships in ENT has gold-colored hull coloration. (pic)

The ISS Enterprise in TOS was mostly the same, just with a slightly darker hull.

The ISS Defiant in DS9 looked mostly the same, but the interior was reddish-colored. (pic)

So I think there is a precedent for Terran Empire ships having different coloration than that of Federation ships.

That said, I think they should be pale red rather than purple, both to match the ISS Defiant and to distinguish them from Jem'Hadar ships.
