Library contemporary-home-office


This elegant walnut paneled library is the coziest room in the house. The vintage architectural “envelope” was so traditional, we used contemporary Italian furniture to complement the grid wall panels. A warm golden color, which was found in the Tibetan wool rug, was chosen for the ceiling, and chocolate browns, tans and reds accent the rest of the space . The bookshelves are filled with the owner’s artbooks and miniature chair collection. Photo by Beth Singer.

Hello. This paneling is over 70 years old, but it does look in person exactly as it does in the photo. I'm sure a painter could mix a custom stain for you to approve. Best regards, Charles Dunlap

Types of flooring - What other types of flooring do you all think work with wood paneling like this? Any sort of light tile, greens, etc? Trying to brighten a space with lots of this paneling.

Alex, I see the brown paneling as a neutral, so really any color direction on the floor would work. If you're wanting to do tile, I would probably do another neutral, such as a tan limestone. You can always add color with a rug, but you can't easily change the floor color if you get bored with it. Regards, Charles

Wainscoting - The wainscoting has a very clean and uniform finish to it, the same way that a piece of furniture does with no need to painting/varnishing on site. I am planning a wainscoting project and would be grateful for advise on how this clean uniform finish is created. Thanks

5. Wood paneling. This kind of goes hand-in-hand with dark colors, but I'd be remiss not to include it in our list as it is a hallmark of a classic study. If traditional paneling isn't your thing...

Paneling - This type of material can be used a couple different ways. Either like this, or just straight wood panels. It can be used anywhere but bathrooms or kitchens really, or any space where there is a lot of moisture that would wreck the wood.
