I'm having a moment with natural wood right now. Something about the warmth, the subtle variations in shade, the imperfect repetition of the grain...you get where I'm going with this?
So, I'm digging around for more gorgeous ways to use it in our projects and come across Dinesen, a Danish flooring company that makes next-level wood applications.
Check it out.
Wainscoting should be traditional and painted (and probably have some wallpaper above it). Stripping it down to it's most basic elements makes it modern, sculptural and warm.
What makes this so special? The width of those planks. You see all the idiosyncrasies in the wood, which create an abstract pattern of shapes across each board. And, they hit the design out of the park by using dark, matte finishes in all the other materials so the patterns in the wood jump out at you.
This couldn't be simpler or more sophisticated. When you repeat an element, like the wood on the wall and ceiling, again and again, you increase it's impact. Then they made it completely fabulous by adding a table top of wide planks to contrast with the narrow pattern on the wall and make it really stand out.
Should we all go in on a wood house in Sweden? #hygge
