Sara’s Stunning Favorites: Wood Accent Walls!

I am loving the mix of rustic accents and modern elements to create an awesome urban-chic look. The rustic barn-wood wall is one of my favorite ways to achieve that urban-chic style.

We like the barn wood accent wall so much here at Coleman Homes, that we put it in the Design Gallery lobby. You can also check out the rustic barn-wood wall in the beautiful Kirkham model home at Bellano Creek in Meridian Idaho.

With a little bit of elbow grease and some time you can get this look for your home. There are great ideas online for how to do it yourself and excellent local resources to find wood. One of those is Restore|Habitat for Humanity. They have two locations in the Treasure Valley and every day more supplies are donated. The best part is you are helping to re-use material that would otherwise be thrown out and supporting a good cause. For locations and hours check out

Nee more inspiration? I found these awesome DIY wood accent walls on Pinterest. I liked this one made from stained wood pallets.
