Be very careful if you do as Angel suggests.  Many builders economize on prims by using a single prim as the wall for several adjacent rooms.  Changing the color of the wall in one of those rooms will change it in all of the rooms that share the same wall.  Same thing with textures, so be just as careful if you are applying wallpaper.  Remember, of course, that if diaster strikes and you do something irreparable, you can always rez a new copy of your house -- assuming that you have copy perms on it.

Hello AlexaShade. Although is no something difficult, you must to be very careful. If no, is possible to change the colour of all of the house or part of it. I explain:

  1. Right click on the wall --> Edit.
  2. Texture tab
  3. Choose "Edit Linked"
  4. Click again on the wall you want and be sure that it is highlighted (only the wall)
  5. Now you are ready to change or the texture (left) or the colour (right)
  6. Close the edit window

That's all.

Just to add to LoveAngel's excellent answer.  If you only want to change one side of the wall, you should use the Select Face as well as Edit Linked.  This is useful if you have a wall with a different outside texture and inside texture.  This allows you to select only the one side to change.

and to add one further point...the Texture tab of the edit window lets you change two things...texture, and color.

If the wall has any sort of pattern on it, and you want to keep it, don't change the texture.  Just try tinting it, with the color box.  You can revert back by changing the color back to white.  Once you change the texture, though, it's gone and you can't un-do it.

Rolig has a good point.  If the wall extends farther than the room you want to 'paint', your best bet is to make a new wall.  Rez a cube and form it into a thin, flat panel that covers your wall.  Then texture this prim, rather than the wall of your house.

Think of it as prim wallpaper.
