Some things just come and go cyclically. Think wallpaper. Or bell bottoms. Shiplap is one of those elements in design that has returned with a vengeance. It seems like you can’t open up a home magazine or scroll social media without seeing it all over. Don’t get us wrong, we happen to love shiplap. But, as I do not have a farmhouse nor does anyone in say, New York City, we are firm believers that a design can be repeated too often. In fact, we are pretty big believers that a home should be a reflection of YOU. If you love the idea of texture on your walls but want something unique, let’s think out of the box for a minute. That is part of good design – and a good designer will try to give you something unique and creative that you will love to come home to.
Yellow Shiplap is incredibly sunny. If you did sunshine on your walls would you pair with neutrals or a an extra pop?
An orange barn door provides a fun pop for this otherwise simple space. Perfect for a kid’s space!
Navy shiplap adds balance to the overly feminine space.
Pink shiplap … two words you would never think belong in the same sentence
Farmhouse takes on an unexpected hue
A modern feel with traditional elements .. do you prefer the shiplap to be horizontal or vertical?
Green shiplap is unexpected and welcoming. The undertones create a warm feeling where white would not.
This shiplap can only be called charming.. or whimsical?
That blue shiplap fed into the bunks makes a fun change to the standard white
Do you love it or not so much? Look closely …. striped shiplap
Red shiplap is a bold move
The black shiplap wall provides a striking balance to the light furnishings and artwork
A custom hood adds an extra element of interest to a kitchen with a timeless elegance
Black Shiplap gives a timeless design element a little edge. As always, we would love to know what you think…… Creatively yours, Andrea and Kimberly
