We often see paneling painted white, but I love how the designer deviated from the norm and borrowed a warm beige hue from the area rug. The designer's selection maintains the entryway's cozy atmosphere and complements tones in the furniture and the wood flooring.
In lieu of framed artwork, a continuous wall of wainscoting provides visual interest while maintaining a clean minimalist aesthetic.
Want to add bit of flair to your traditional wainscoting installation? Wallpaper the upper half of the wall in a bold, colorful print. Not only will your space have the wow factor you crave, you also save money on labor and materials by only covering a portion of the wall.
Floor-to-ceiling wainscoting gives instant clues to the style of this lakeside retreat. Furniture and accents are a natural extension of the room's architectural and follows through with its cottage theme.
This has to be one of my favorite wainscoting applications. In this two story foyer, the paneling has been installed up to standard ceiling height, visually lowering the ceiling and making the space feel both welcoming and intimate.
Here is another illustration of the same technique. This cathedral-height foyer uses paneling combined with a checkered floor to ground the space while a formidable chandelier takes full advantage of the soaring ceilings.
