The ability to change the color of your casinos has been long-requested, but due to technical limitations it was never possible. That all changes with this update! Simply visit your lot editor and go to the new "Paint" tab, which gives you the ability to change the hue and saturation of your casino, allowing for a huge range of new styles.
UPDATE
