I am using the scrlttr2 class of Koma Script and I would like to use a different color for the letterhead, which contains my address on the top of the page.

Is there a simple way to apply the command \color{colorname} at the whole letterhead? Or, to stay more general, to apply a style such as \sffamily etc.?

The only way I figured out is to put the command in each definition of \setkomavar, but it does not even fully solve the problem because the separators are not affected.

Many thanks!
