You don’t have to go to school for architecture to communicate to your real estate agent the style of home you’re looking for. Cozy or contemporary, modern or historical, understanding home styles has its advantages.
Shiplap walls transcend a variety of genres: farmhouse, rustic, nautical, cottage, shabby chic – you name it. Here is a helpful how-to in creating this fun look in your home!
There’s something about the look of exposed wood beams in a home…they give an air of elegance with the perfect amount of rustic cottage feel. But authentic, antique, rustic wood beams are crazy expensive – and while they’re gorgeous to look at, who really has the money to spend on them?
So, what if I told you that you could get that same look for a fraction of the price? You. Totally. Can.
We found this nifty how-to on the White Buffalo Styling Co. website.
The trick with this DIY is using framing lumber, and staining the lumber to a shade that will acent your room. In this case, the homeowner wanted to pair the beams with the floors and create a stark contrast with the white walls and dark wood (#NailedIt).
The end result of this project is stunning, and adds a new rustic and classic focal point to any room.
The project itself is a more intensive DIY for sure, but we think it's totally worth it.
