Howww is it almost July?! 2020 will forever be known as the slowest yet fastest year known to date. While COVID may have caused us to rearrange some plans, one perk is that it has given us a little time to go down a Pinterest inspiration tunnel, hence our post today.
We get hired to come into homes old and new. We’ve had the pleasure of fixing up some 1950’s and 60’s homes preserving their quirks and character, while on the other hand, we’ve been brought on to bring life into some tract homes with not so much charm, architecturally speaking. Whatever the type of house, a big part of our job is making our clients’ home feel comfortable and well-lived while also making them feel interesting and current.
An impactful way to bring charm and personality to your home is through the use of custom millwork. We are talking wall paneling to be exact. Wood-paneled walls are a great alternative to the everyday paint job and wallpaper. It gives an otherwise ordinary room a custom and personal touch. Paneled walls can elevate the whole room by adding texture and dimension. Depending on which type of paneling is used, the detailing can feel classic and traditional, modern and refined, or even ornate and European.
We are tried-and-true fans of shiplap, but lately, we’ve been crushing on other types of paneling, too. You’ve probably seen the square grid, board and batten accent wall in our latest La Jolla Project via Instagram. We are so grateful our client trusted us to give her bedroom walls some much-needed lift and depth, and we are so pleased with the results. The pitched ceilings mixed with the square grid walls made this space feel much larger while also staying warm and inviting.
The possibilities and locations within the home for these beloved wood-panels are endless, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite examples below. Hope you enjoy the inspiration as much as we did!
