Wood Walls Re-Invented

Slatted walls are starting to appear in my Instagram feed. This can only mean one thing…they’re having a moment! It’s not uncommon to use wood in a home as it’s a great material for adding warmth and richness to a space. But fake wood paneling from the 60’s and 70’s was pretty awful. So, the thought of a wood clad wall makes me a little nervous. But the good news, architects and designers are taking a more minimalistic approach with clean lines and the use of light wood, giving the overall look a very zen-like feeling.
