This Week’s Episode 13 – Paige & Jeff

I was waiting for what felt like forever to be able to work on an amazing beach space and, when we got to this house and met this family, I knew that the day had finally come! In a wonderful pocket right near the water, we found ourselves working on a home for an amazing couple in an amazing location!

There were sooo many elements that I absolutely loved, but I have to admit that the whitewashed reclaimed barn board herringbone wall treatment was my absolute favourite. I love all of those adjectives on their own, so imagine my delight when I saw that someone had combined them into one super-product! I didn’t just love this product though; I also love HOW we used it.

Often times open-concept houses lack any kind of definition to the rooms. By centering the barn board on the wall to the dining room light fixture and making it as wide as the eating area, we not only defined the dining portion of the space, we added a gorgeous feature that brings an incredible amount of beach charm to the whole main floor since you can see it from the kitchen and living room as well.

The only thing I would have changed was the time of year of the reno so we could have laid out on the beach in the sun to celebrate a job well done!
