Most (all?) terminal emulators can adjust the colors, even without X11.  I
just brought it up in the case that you had changed the background color
and missed the bold color.

As an example, I use PuTTY as an SSH client, but change the background to
be white.  If you just change the background and foreground colors, you
miss the "bold" because it is white on white.
