Inspiration Friday- The Character of Wood

There is nothing like paneling to give a home character. Vertical or horizontal, it matters not to me. I love it either way. Floor to ceiling, creamy paint, texture and charm. It seems that most people that have it don't appreciate it and those of us who do appreciate it, don't have it. I would love to add it to at least one room in my house someday.

  5. I totally agree with you. I wish I had paneling, maybe in the dining room as well as in the bathroom. I especially love that bathroom picture, I saw it sometime in the past and fell in love with it.

  8. Jen what wonderful inspiration you have shared. I'm like you I have always loved wood paneling. In fact we were in Lowe's tonight checking the prices of beadboard and trims. We are going to add it to our kitchen bookcase in the coming weeks. RJ

  10. You are so right. There is nothing like beadboard or wainscoting to add some charm and character to ahome, especially a new home. We plan to add both to our new house. That's the drawback to new...not as much character...
    Great inspirational pictures!!

  17. Love the pictures. When we lived in Calistoga, CA we lived in a house that was built in 1857. It was said to have been an old stagecoach stop in its day; square nails and all. It had been added on to over the years and one of the additions was white wood paneling - not for decorative purposes I am sure. It can also be a good choice when you are trying to cover imperfections! Thanks for the great post - have I mentioned lately how much I love your blog?

  18. I love all the pictures. The textures really do add personality. My brother has pecky cypress in several rooms of his home. It is gorgeous and timeless.

  20. Such pretty photos! I, too, love painted wood and paneling, and your pictures show the wonderful texture that various woods bring to a room.

  21. You have me longing to throw everything out and go all white!!! Maybe someday when my girls aren't such dirt magnets (they are as bad as boys!)

    I am totally digging the huge clock, upside down cloche light fixture (?), and just about everything else in the second to last picture...thanks for sharing!

    PS~ I have beadboard and DO appreciate it...probably because I put it there, LOL!

  22. Yummy pix!!! Love them all! We have beaded board wainscotting in our bathrooms and it makes us feel like we're living at the beach year-round! Thanks for the wonderful images & inspiration.

  23. I SO love paneling. As my husband says, I have an insatiable urge to "drape everything in beadboard." I didn't do as much as I wanted to in this house, but I hope to do more in the next one! ~A :-)
