man wborder

       The  border,  wborder and box routines draw a box around the edges of a
       window.  Other than the window, each argument is a character  with  at-

You have to add the colors to the character, e.g.,

#define colored_ctype(ch, attr, pair) \
        ((ch) | (attr) | COLOR_PAIR(pair))

            colored_chtype(ACS_VLINE,    attr, pair),
            colored_chtype(ACS_VLINE,    attr, pair),
            colored_chtype(ACS_HLINE,    attr, pair),
            colored_chtype(ACS_HLINE,    attr, pair),
            colored_chtype(ACS_ULCORNER, attr, pair),
            colored_chtype(ACS_URCORNER, attr, pair),
            colored_chtype(ACS_LLCORNER, attr, pair),
            colored_chtype(ACS_LRCORNER, attr, pair));
