I’ve always liked textured walls, these days “shiplap” walls are turning up every where. Really they are rooms with wooden boards on the wall that run vertically or horizontally, of course I love them painted white. I have white vertical boards in the room on my third floor, like you see above. These are original to the house and the boards range in size but most are around 5 - 6” wide. There are also boards on the ceiling so it really completes the look.
Here are a few spaces that I find very inspiring - showing the white painted horizontal shiplap!
I have a cool ship lap DIY idea coming soon!
