I scoured my files for rooms that would demonstrate the wonderful texture of painted wood on walls and celings. Come take a peek and see what I mean.

Along with the all white-palette, I find the repetition of lines in the flooring and wall boards to be visually soothing. The furnishings are sparse and non-fussy, perfect for summertime living.
This entry way has the feel of a porch, with all its painted wood. The blurring of indoor and outdoor spaces, often found in casual beach cottages, inspires a carefree attitude. The dark wood column becomes a sculpture in this all white space.
This bedroom has several different textures. A ceiling such as this one sets a tone for other textures to come into play. The wicker chair and ottoman add a casual note. The potted palm evokes the tropics. Notice how the bedding is kept plain to let the architecture stand out.
This entire space is covered in white-washed wood. The exposed floor joists add such great depth to the ceiling. See how the wood tones look so warm against the flat white painted surfaces. Accents from nature increase the organic vibe.
All the textures in this room, from the sisal rug to the wicker to the floor joists, keep it feeling warm and casual. Pale sage green walls looks great with the color of the wicker and the gray sofa. The dual coffee tables add an unexpected touch. The uber-plush sofa looks nap-worthy. Contrast comes from the black chair.
In this room, the line and texture are of the wood are quite evident. It lengthens the space and draws the eye forward. The worn leather chair and wood table add some masculine notes to this otherwise girly space.
The organic feel of this room is fostered by the variety of textural and natural materials. The serenity of this space is unparalleled. Accents are minimal. The throw and pillows add subtle pattern. Multiple sets of french doors divide the space from other rooms in the house. This has got to be one of my favorite rooms!
I hope you have enjoyed this tour of wood-encased rooms. You can't beat wood, whether planked, paneled, or tongue-and-groove boards, for the casual texture it adds to your home.
Until next time...
