Changing the color/ material of an object?

Hello all,

       I am a high school senior that is currently using Autodesk's Revit Architecture to design a apartment complex for a computer aided drafting class. After somewhat getting the hang of this new software, I have come to a halt when I dove into the aesthetics of the building after completing the structure. All I am trying to do is change the color of the columns along the edge of the building to a different color, preferably tan. But I am having an awful hard time doing so, I have pressed f1 for help numerous times. Even so I just cannot figure out the splitting faces technique or the apply paint method and even the edit family command. Perhaps I am doing something wrong or skipping a step. Help is appreciated and thank you in advance.
