Stop & Stare Ceilings
Colleen here. Home decor is one of my favorite pastimes and luckily, one of my many roles here at the showroom. I’m always looking for the latest trends and one of my go-to resources is Domino Magazine.
Recently, they shared a blog post about upcoming trends for 2018 - unexpected textures, statement ceilings, punchy patterns...hmmm all of those to sound like wood ceilings to me!
Fortunately, we’ve had several clients who were visionaries and saw the trend before it was mentioned. They’ve been generous to let us photograph their homes to fuel the inspiration for more projects.
Read on my trendy friends!
You can’t help but stop and stare at the lush, dark tones of this wood. It creates the perfect setting if you are wanting to create an opulent space with strong dimensional features.
I love the cool, unexpected texture and pattern of Eastern White Pine. It’s a knotty wood and will create a lot of “unexpected textures” and “punchy patterns” on your “statement ceilings”. If you are looking for a distinguished (pinky up!) rustic look, this is an awesome wood to charm your guests. In the case of this client, their playroom charms and inspires the younger guests.
It’s an easy product to install for any home that wants to achieve that sought after modern farmhouse look. Our NOT SHIPLAP: Nickel Gap in Southern Yellow Pine can be painted or left unfinished to give a natural, organic look.
Old School Oak
Oak is one of those woods that fits in anywhere you want to place it. It’s one of those laidback woods which takes stain well, can look modern or rustic, and its strength will hold up as multiple surfaces. This client created the ultimate man cave with a NOT SHIPLAP: Nickel Gap White Oak ceiling left unfinished and Ebonized White Oak flooring.
The Perfect Porch Scene
Nothing beats looking up at the sky and taking in the views from your front porch. With adding wood to the underside of your porch ceiling, you can add a bit more scenery to your view. This outdoor patio area was done by our timber framing friends, East County Oak and the wood used is Western Red Cedar - a superb wood choice for outdoor use.
