You could create a new wall type with a different color fill.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

If your version doesn't allow you to modify the wall type to change the color or definition, you can still use the "Hatch Wall" tool to apply a hatching (which you can change to a solid color) to indicate those types of walls.

Pro 2016 has a "Hatch Wall" tool where you can use it to mark walls of your choice with a hatched fill. It is found under the "Build Menu - Wall - Hatch Wall", the hatching can be turned on or off in "Display Options - Wall - Hatch Wall" after you mark the hatch walls. This is explained in the Reference Manual under the section covering Wall Tools - Hatch Wall tool. Where you might want to show where demo walls used to be, you use 2D CAD in your as built copy of the plan and then "copy-paste-hold position" those outline CAD lines into your remodel plan, usually using a "dashed" line style. Adding a text annotation with an arrow is also a good idea to further delineate what they represent.
