Linda- Yes, the walls were primed first. I'm not sure what the painter ended up using, but in general for wood trim and paneling we use a satin paint. Sometimes it is latex, other times oil based (depends on the painter's preference). Each paint manufacturer has their own formulations (which makes specifying paint formulas pretty confusing!). I would recommend going to a Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore store and seeing what they recommend for your specific situation.

Sorry- the client chose the furnishings and we don't have that information. Here is a similar bed:

When searching for a nightstand, you can look for a "turned leg" nightstands.

Rhea- Thank you! The walls were painted a custom tint with Ben. Moore Grand Teton White as the base (it was lightened a bit, but this was done on site so there isn't a formula). These are 1x12 pine boards (no tongue and groove)- yes you would nail them into the wall studs. Furring strips, or solid blocking would be needed it you won't be crossing a stud. If you google "how to install horizontal wood paneling" you should get some good information. One thing to note- be aware how the paneling will affect window trim and wall outlets/switches. The extra thickness can cause problems if you don't work things out ahead of time. Good luck!

Thank you for the kind words. The boards are just 1x12" plain boards (no tongue and groove, etc.). I'm not sure exactly where the contractor sources them from, but you can probably find this size board in pine at the local big-box lumber yard. If you can find it in poplar it may be cheaper, and poplar is a more stable wood than pine. You might want to try different sizes- an 8" board may look better on your wall, and it might be less likely to warp. Be sure to take into account how the extra wall thickness will affect outlets and window/door trim, and good luck with the project.

The room is 23'-5" x 17'-10". The bed is on the north wall, which is the shorter dimension. The south wall opposite the bed has the entry door in the center and built-in cabinets on either side. The West Wall has a double french door leading out to a covered porch with double windows on either side. The East wall has three doors, one to the bathroom, one to a closet and one to an office space. The bed in centered on the north wall and there are some chairs near the fireplace. I don't have an exact layout of the furniture, but this should give you an idea.

We weren't involved in picking furniture and fabrics, so I don't know who makes this particular fabric. Perhaps someone else on Houzz can identify it???

It's called horizontal wood paneling, and yes, they are individual boards.
