Rustic Office Reception AreaContemporary Basement, New York
The wall of antique barn wood paneling is unexpected in this company lobby. The blue paint treatment mimics the look of aging signs on barns across America, and highlights the company name. Inviting and relaxed furnishings and the presence of an employees dog at work welcomes visitors.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
12. Feature walls. Orient your feature wall vertically. Don’t be afraid to do something daring in a space with a low ceiling. Just ensure that you don’t emphasize that low ceiling in the process.Wall paint: Texas Leather, Benjamin Moore
Try a unique statement wall. Basements beg for a little extra fun, so if there is something you have been wanting to try but are afraid to commit to on the main floor, the basement is the perfect place to experiment. Paint an accent wall or try stencils, salvaged signage or a DIY art project. You can always paint it over if it doesn't work out the way you had envisioned.
A touch of the right shade of blue can make all the difference in a rustic room. This color against the weathered wood creates the look of wood reclaimed from a barn with an advertisement painted on it. The result is unique and fun.
