It’s not on my goal list….but I really would love to add faux paneling to our dining room. Then I saw a photo that really pushed my urge over the edge. Check it out:
Look at all the purtiness! Yes ma’am. It’s cozier than siamese triplets in a sleeping bag! But as much as I wanna wrap myself up in that rouched quilt and lean back on that greige ornate headboard, the center of my attention is that faux paneled wall. The white on white paneling is just so stately and classy and well, hotter than “the Rachel” in ’95.
In my twisted mind, the perfect place for faux paneling is in our room dedicated to eating
bacon. Currently, we have the trim painted in Benjamin Moore’s Pastel white base. Above the chair rail is Valspar’s Dusty Trail. Below is Olympic’s Stony Creek. Yes, I am playing a little menage a trois on paint brands…they understand, I just can’t be tied down.
Bada boom bada bing. Here you go – the photoshopped version of what my dining room could look like with some non-silicone enhancements. What do you think? If I added some trim and painted it all white to make it look like paneling on the lower half of the room, is it too contrast-y? Eventually I want to stain the buffet to match the table – so take that into account when you make your decision. Is it too light, too white, too bright, too (quick, what rhymes with ite?) – I really would love all twenty of you guys to give your input…and I quite possibly think that this decision could change my life. And yes – it is the bacon that makes me melodramatic 🙂
