I confessed way back in May to recommending paneling to a young male client who I promptly never heard from again. Well, guess what?? I did it again. This time I am more confident my recommendation has fallen onto favorable ears.
The DC condo will sing with paneling. Not everywhere, but just on the wall opposite the curved bank of windows. And not white. No, this is not a country home, but will be urban contemporary in style. Deep stain will serve to draw attention to the view, and will form a backdrop for the television.
So many things from the past are now wholeheartedly dismissed, simply because of too many horrid memories. Memories of wallpaper that refused to come off. Memories of harvest gold appliances way still running well past fashion. And memories of paneling that was not even real wood.
I refuse to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Not many would scoff at a wood ceiling. So why discriminate against a wood wall??
