Another option is to use conditional formatting rather than an interior fill. By defining the name 'isSelected?' to refer to
= ISREF(Sheet1!H15 SelectedRange)
[the intersection of the current cell as a relative reference and a range set by the Macro]
one can colour cells using leaving the interior fill unaltered.
The macro is
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Target.Name = "SelectedRange" End Sub

Thanks - I am familiar with this method, but it has been less than 100% dependable in my experience. I have tried it several times, but it occasionally left cells highlighted after another cell had been selected...
