Loving: Horizontal Plank Walls

Tillman Long Interiors
One of my favorite things about older homes is the character and workmanship they were built with. Crown molding, chunky trim, some wainscoting - beadboard or board & batten, and even wood paneling also make more of an impact in any space. These details are not in most houses but it is fairly easy to add. We did this in our last house, when we added board and batten in the bathroom, picture frame moldings in the dining room and crown molding in the living room. In our current house, I want to add in some extra character and I'm dying over these horizontal plank walls that have become super popular.

This wall treatment looks amazing in any space. Like a hallway:

I'm thinking about adding the horizontal planks to the upstairs of our bungalow. It has the slanted walls and I think this treatment would make it so cozy. 

There are quite a few tutorials about how to DIY plank walls. These two caught my eye, so I'll probably follow their steps:

As much as this is a recent trend, I do think it is a classic look that will not go out of style. I'm glad to see more people adding character to their homes! It will probably be a little while before we can start this project but I can't wait!

  1. It is the best time to make some plans for the long run and it is
    time to be happy. I have read this put up and if I may
    I want to suggest you few attention-grabbing issues or tips.
    Maybe you could write subsequent articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read even more things approximately it!
