Experts in home renovation and interior design agree that paint is one of the most effective ways to make a personal statement, bring in a pop of color or create ambience. From natural tones to accent walls, Dave Perry-Miller & Associates present four homes that use paint for colorful and dramatic flair.
The home at 5800 Armstrong Pkwy. demonstrates the use of natural hues in several rooms. Airy light blue in the bedroom creates a calming effect, while pale teal in the children’s bedroom establishes a playful atmosphere. A deeper pale green in the dining room makes it cozy and inviting.
This gorgeous Park Cities home, within walking distance of Highland Park Village, also features authentic French influences and high-end finishes throughout. The chef’s kitchen has soapstone counters and a black granite island with top-brand appliances. The home also offers a formal library; master suite with his-and-hers 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 midcentury modern home at 10110 Daria Dr. has a must-see kitchen. The blue-hued Geneva cabinets are accented by silver backsplash tiling and sleek hardware for a clean, modern aesthetic. This home also features terrazzo and hardwood floors, master bath with dressing area, and kitchenette near the pool.
The living room of the Greenway Parks home at 5560 Waneta Dr. 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 — decorated by Michelle Nussbaumer, who is known for her interiors work — is pulled together with green side chairs and accents. 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 Blvd. 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.
