WOOD




SHIPLAP

The Modern Farmhouse style ushered in the SHIPLAP bandwagon. Offered in a variety of sizes and applications and typically seen with 6"-8" nickel gap planks in a horizontal or vertical pattern.

WOOD SLATS

Emerging from many Mid-Century modern designs, WOOD SLAT walls are making a comeback and provide a pleasing contemporary feel. Available in easy to install acoustic panels, these slat walls work great when juxtaposed with lighter walls to provide warmth and texture.

WALL PANELING and WAINSCOTING

WALL PANEL applications vary in height and design. Endless possibilities to achieve that wow factor! An architectural detail that can be sophisticated or whimsical; and let's not forget practical...far more resistant to scuff marks than a bare sheetrock wall. Typically wainscoting covers the lower 1/3 or 3/4 of your wall while paneling is from baseboard to ceiling.




BOARD & BATTEN - equidistantly placed vertical stiles or battens (usually 1x2 or 1x3) installed on finish-grade plywood or directly onto a sheetrock wall.


WAINSCOT PANELS - large or small scale squares or rectangles created using various trim details such as narrow picture frame moulding or 1x 4 with cove moulding. Timeless and clean, it creates instant character in small spaces as a Powder Rm or breaks up large expanses of sheetrock as in a stairway. The substrate can be either the sheetrock wall or plywood, bead board, shiplap, etc.

WOOD FINISHES

WHITE PAINTED - clean & classic

STAINED or WHITE-WASHED- provides warmth and showcases the beauty of the wood grain

PAINTED W/COLOR - packs the punch you need to an otherwise neutral color palette

SHOU SUGI BAN- charred wood finish provides modern appeal and a nice contrast with lighter woods and colors

WALLPAPER


Subtle or bold ....so many sublime choices to add interest. Wallpaper has come a long way with a smorgasbord of choices: natural, textured, hand-pointed, and specialty papers. You may opt for large graphic patterns or print designs on grasscloth...so many options.

TILE and STONE


Ceramic, handmade terra cotta, glass, metal, stone...so many great choices in shape, size and material. This world is definitely your oyster!


Natural stone slab backsplashes are becoming a popular wall treatment particularly in kitchens and bathrooms. It has a lovely aesthetic and practical appeal without the visible grout lines of tile and makes cleaning a breeze.

ADD CHARACTER

in subtle or bold ways by adding pattern, texture, and warmth throughout your home. Consider the possibilities - wood panels, wainscoting, tile, stone, wallpaper, grasscloth- or perhaps bring in the moody ambience of Roman clay. Whatever you choose, go ahead.... bring some life to those walls!
