We can safely say that, while the standard orange of Elite Dangerous may appeal to normal PC users, it is a pretty demanding drain on the eyes when playing in VR. At least for me.

Luckily, we have cool tools such as the Sethioz HUD Color Editor, with which we can customize the of the cockpit HUD and some UI elements, to make them look better.

I found this config to be particularly pleasing for VR:

<MatrixRed> 0.05, 0.4, 0.4 </MatrixRed>
<MatrixGreen> 0.2, 0.8, 0 </MatrixGreen>
<MatrixBlue> 0.8, 0, 0.2 </MatrixBlue>
