The signs are all around us: The nights are getting cooler, leaves are beginning to change color, and boots and scarves are suddenly necessary. There’s no way to avoid it—our #SummerofShiplap is coming to an end.
We have spent the summer basking in the glow of one of our favorite interior finishings, and had the best time seeing the rooms of @andrewpikeinteriors, @monikahibbs, @coco.and.jack, @thehappyhousie, and many more go from cute to incredible, using Metrie Complete pre-painted shiplap!
If you’re like us, you’re not ready to say goodbye to all the shiplap eye candy. So, we have even more shiplap trimspiration! We’ve asked our community to #ShowYourShiplap and we’re featuring a few of our favorite spaces. Be prepared for some serious shiplap envy, below.
Weekend Project: Eating Nook
The shiplap feature wall in this sweet breakfast nook by Gaby, of My Chic Abode, warms the space and perfectly frames the picture windows. Gaby was able to complete her French Country transformation in a flash. Check out her before and after post to see just how much of a difference shiplap makes in the space!
A Simply Beautiful Bathroom Makeover
Ok, we were wrong. There actually is something we love more than shiplap—shiplap and subway tile! There are so many stunning pieces in this bathroom makeover, we almost don’t know where to look. From the patterned tile to the bronze fixtures and distressed vanity, everything about this bathroom makes us want to stay forever. Get all the details on this space from Simply Beautiful Eating’s blog.
Insta-Worthy Kitchen Redo
Krissy Peterson might get to do laps around this island every day, but we’re content in drooling over this picture. This Instagram-worthy, timeless kitchen is perfectly balanced with color and texture. Take a look and you’ll spot a vintage rug, sleek black lamps, reflective surfaces from stainless steel appliances, and of course, refreshing texture from shiplap installed on the ceiling.
Powder Room Genius
Jill masterfully maximizes the space in this charming powder room. In tight spaces, even the best design ideas can go from “wow” to overwhelming in the blink of an eye. Jill strikes the perfect balance of rustic and clean by matching up crisp, shiplap walls with a raw-wood sink and woven storage baskets. The soft curves of the mirror and faucet round out the look, keeping it contemporary and clean.
Weekend Project: Fireplace Facelift
Amber knows there’s no shame if your weekend DIY project takes a little (or a lot) longer than you thought. Especially if the result is as stunning as this. Do away with the 2000’s stacked stone look, and update your fireplace with shiplap. Pro tip: Balance the clean lines of shiplap with a circular mirror to soften the look and add interest to the space without adding clutter.
