10 Savvy Shiplap Looks for the Home

Shiplap is a wall treatment that has been trending in home design lately. While it has been showing up a lot more in homes in the last year or so, it’s not a new look — in fact, shiplap is a classic design choice that has never gone out of style and looks great in a variety of ways.

What sets shiplap apart from other wood paneling is the width of the boards and horizontal layout. Wood paneling comes in a lot of different variations, but shiplap is very distinct by these two features. It is usually used as an exterior for rustic structures like sheds and barns, but it brings a lot of character to interior spaces, too.

Here are 10 stylish examples of shiplap walls in various different styles, from country chic to contemporary.

Home Tour: Michelle Monaghan’s Modern Home

Actress Michelle Monaghan and her husband, a graphic designer, fell in love with their Los Angeles home for many reasons, but one of the most breathtaking is the chance to see an incredible sunrise every morning. They say it fills the house with a golden light, and when you see the house, you can see where color and light played a huge role in the way they decorated it.

The home has a distinctly midcentury modern style with a few whimsical touches. On a crisp, white palette, they have introduced color in clever ways that create a beautiful impact and captivate you. They share the home with their two children and you can see the whimsy they have inspired in some of the decor while still staying true to a chic, modern look.

Check out this beautiful modern home tour from InStyle to get inspired on ways to use bold color in your home:

Dark and Dramatic Black Interior Doors

In most homes, the interior doors are some form of white or off-white. While this standard looks great, playing with the color of your interior doors can be a fun way to get creative with your home’s design. One of my favorite alternatives is black interior doors.

Black interior doors have an effortless sense of style that is bold, luxurious, and timeless. They’re a great choice if you want to add some drama to your home without getting too crazy. This look is classic and elegant and can suit a myriad of design styles, from sleek and modern to traditional and glamorous.

Though in most homes, painting every single interior door black might be overdoing it a little, it could be a great look to make one eye-catching statement, such as for your front or back doors, master bathroom, or French doors dividing an office space.

Here are 10 inspiring examples of how you can decorate with black interior doors in various ways.

Clearly Chic Dining Rooms with Lucite Chairs

Lucite chairs (and other lucite furniture, sometimes called “ghost” or acrylic) have been gaining steam in decorating in recent years. While it’s easy to think this is just a trend, lucite furniture has actually been around for a while and was very big in mid-century modern design. The resurgence of this classic look has offered up some great new spins on it that make it a fabulous choice for a variety of scenarios.

One of my favorite looks is a dining room with lucite chairs. There are a lot of benefits to using lucite chairs around a dining room table. Because they are clear and see-through, lucite chairs take up very little visual weight so that the space feels larger, airier, and more open. They can also keep the focus on bright colors and bold patterns or let you see a beautiful base of a table.

Here are 10 dining rooms with lucite chairs to show you the many ways in which they can be used, whether your style is rustic, modern, glamorous or something in-between.
