Bold Color Choices Can Make Your Property Stand Out From the Crowd

Experts in home renovation and interior design agree that one of the most effective ways to make a personal statement, bring in a pop of color, or create an ambiance is through paint and texture.  From natural tones to accent walls, here are four homes that use paint for colorful and dramatic flair.

Natural Look


The home at 5800 Armstrong Parkway demonstrates the use of natural hues in several rooms. Airy light blue in the bedroom creates a calming effect; pale teal in the children’s bedroom establishes a playful atmosphere; and the deeper pale green in the dining room creates cozy yet inviting ambience. This gorgeous Park Cities home features authentic French influences and high-end finishes throughout. The chef’s kitchen has soap-stone counters and a black granite island with top-brand appliances. The home also offers a formal library; master suite with his/her baths, walk-in closets, and coffee bar; and exercise room/study. Additional features include an elevator, motor court, art gallery, and exterior apartment.





Bring in the Blues


The Mid-Century Modern home at 10110 Daria Drive has a must-see kitchen. The blue-hued Geneva cabinets are accented by silver backsplash tiling and sleek hardware for a clean and inviting modern look. This home also features terrazzo and hardwood floors, master bath with dressing area, and kitchenette near the pool.

Go Green


The living room of the Greenway Parks home at 5560 Waneta Drive is a study in green. Three walls are painted in a lime hue, while the fourth wall is covered with kelly green patterned wallpaper. The room is pulled together with green side chairs and accents—and decorated by Michelle Nussbaumer, who is known for her beautiful interiors work. This four-bedroom home is located on a greenbelt and features an open floor plan, chef’s kitchen, game room, and office.


Another estate to use green is the Classic Mediterranean at 6810 Turtle Creek Boulevard. Here, you’ll find taffy green walls and matching furnishings (including a green chandelier!) in one of the six bedrooms. This home sits on 0.9 acres along Turtle Creek and features beautiful landscaping, wide plank wood floors, paneled study, wine cellar, and a master that opens onto a terrace.
