Add a Splash of Personality to your New Coleman Home

When you personalize your dream home at the Coleman Homes Design Studio, you get to select the features and finishes that are uniquely “you” – but the fun doesn’t have to stop there! Once you begin to unpack your boxes and settle in, it’s time to think of even more ways to help your surroundings reflect your life and your style.

Your beautiful new home has one fresh paint finish on walls and ceilings, and a complementary tint on trim and doors. Before you start pounding nails into those brand-new surfaces, consider adding an accent wall! The process can be as simple as adding a coat of paint in a contrasting color, but don’t be afraid to consider other options. A touch of texture, some interesting wallpaper, or even strategically-placed shelving can add a dose of striking design without a big commitment.

Bold Color

Don’t shy away from colors that make a statement! As long as your room includes complementary touches, an accent wall in a vibrant hue like jade green won’t overwhelm your décor.

Subtle Accent

Consider an accent wall even if you’re keeping your room neutral. An understated texture like this faux brick wall makes a big impact, even though it’s white on white.

Focal Point with Function

Floating shelves add visual interest and personality to your décor. Use them to display cherished photographs, beloved books, family keepsakes, or items related to a favorite hobby.

A Rustic Statement

Wood paneling offers natural warmth and texture to this elegant bedroom, while providing a pleasing contrast to an otherwise neutral palette.

Eye-Catching Wallpaper

Wallpaper can be a gorgeous choice for your accent wall. Today’s contemporary options come in a wide variety of patterns and colors and are much easier to apply and remove than those from years past. Try adding a wallpaper accent to your laundry room, powder bathroom, or children’s room.
