The Power of Color: Unique Ways to Paint Your Home

Color is a dynamic tool that can be used in any room of your home – just a couple of modifications can impact the atmosphere of your space. Here are a few unique and diverse ways that you can incorporate color into your new Toll Brothers home.


Add an accent wall

Change the focal point of the room with an accent wall. Select a bold, contrasting color from the room’s current color scheme. Draw inspiration from a piece of artwork, fabric, or furniture piece. If you get stuck, paint your accent wall a few shades darker than your current wall color to add just the right amount of “pop.” Read more about incorporating accent walls into your home.


Paint the ceiling

Transform the overall look by painting the ceiling a different shade. Use dark tones in large rooms to make the room feel cozy or select lighter shades for smaller spaces to accentuate and open up the area. Ceilings are often the forgotten “fifth wall,” but by selecting bright or darker colors, you can creatively reinvent the space. Want something adventurous? Add embellishments such as patterns and borders.

Create bold walls

For a bold, daring look, paint all of the walls with jewel-tone dark blues or bright greens. Create a brilliant contrast and balance the loud colors with neutral furniture that will inspire and delight.


Use colorful furniture

Rather than creating a bold wall, do the opposite. Paint the walls a neutral color and balance the neutral walls with colorful furniture. Using colorful furniture or accessories in a neutral room will change the focal point and allow the design to shine. Read more on how to make a room flow.


Incorporate pillows and curtains

Add pizazz to your favorite spaces by placing colorful throws, pillows, or multi-textured window treatments. Unify the room by coordinating fabrics and other accent pieces. Feel free to be creative and blend in contrasting colors to create visual interest.


Use colorful fixtures
