I love this feature wall. Usually I am not into feature walls, but in this case... LOVE IT! I stumbled across this photo in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. I could not find this photo on their website so sorry for my bad photo taken of the magazine page.
As you know, I did a Board and Batten project in my master bedroom. I have gotten lots of compliments on it! I like a project that adds character to a house! I have also admired exposed board walls like the one Miss Mustard Seed created. Unfortunately, the exposed board look does not really go with the style of our house which has a lot of molding, wainscotting, etc. I think it is a little too casual for our home. If we had a cape or bungalow it would be great, but our Royal Barry Wills colonial calls for something else.
I have this idea saved in the back of my mind if we ever finish our attic or perhaps for Avery's room when she gets older! :) You cannot really see the detail in the picture, but the squares are all backed with beadboard that go in opposite directions on the diagonal to create a herringbone type look. It is classic yet with a twist!
What inspires you these days? Until next time...xoxo
