Shiplap. Do you love it or do you hate it? Did you binge watch too many episodes of Fixer Upper over the weekend (it’s okay, we did too!), that you are so over it?? Well… we are still loving it! And here’s why:


There’s so many different ways you can incorporate “shiplap” into a design! When we hear the word shiplap we immediately think of white painted wood, run horizontally on the wall, like the pictured here in this master bedroom. Now don’t get me wrong it is beautiful and adds so much to a space.

But why not change it u? Just by simply adding a coat of paint you can transform the style of your space. They used a dark gray shiplap on the ceiling here in this contemporary family room and it is stunning! it not only draws your eye up but it adds so much character. The dark grey is such a nice contract against stark white walls and furnishings.


Or why not tr turning the wood on a diagonal like we did here in the this dining room that we are loving! The texture and color of the white discs against the light gray shiplap walls creates such a focal point in this space. You can also use shiplap on a smaller scale, as little accents here and like they did in this super cool mudroom.

Or try herringbone pattern on a wall in a game room or kids room can be another fun way to jazz up a space. Mixing different color and textures of wood can instantly change the overall feel by adding warmth and dimension to a room.
