The original fireplace brick was painted white and shiplap paneling with a natural wood mantel was installed. The living room is staged with French Country accessories, books, and bright linen window treatments.
The new living room in the King home is open and spacious. Walls have been removed, creating a much more open feel. Shiplap has been put in and new wood floors have been installed, as seen on Fixer Upper.
Embrace shiplap, the wide wooden boards that have historically been used to construct barns and older homes and a design favorite of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines. Allison Worley, senior designer at Atlanta's Haven Design Works, installed shiplap in her bathroom and painted it in Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray. Shiplap can be done as an accent wall or installed along the entire room. Haven Design Works owner Donna Mathis adds that putting shiplap or tile just behind a vanity mirror can change the whole look of a bathroom.
Designer Karen Swanson of New England Design Works used found plywood to create unique walls that resemble shiplap siding. A stunning round chandelier with Edison bulbs is a charming edition to the room.
The living room of the newly renovated Magnolia House bed and breakfast has been completely transformed. Walls were removed to open the space, new windows and flooring were installed and shiplap walls now brightens up the space, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
