I love a good mix of styles, especially when the said mix involves a traditional Edwardian English home in London with the coastal feel of a Nantucket cottage clad in shiplap panelling.
Shiplap has been around for a long time and yet its appeal and timeless look never seems to get old. I love how this definition concerning this rustic and unassuming material which the homeowners installed and then painted in Strong White (No.2001).
“Characterized by long horizontal (or vertical) panels formed by overlapping “rabbets” (grooved boards), weathertight shiplap has long been popular in areas with harsh climates. Because of this functionality, and due to the fact that it was often made from relatively inexpensive pine, shiplap has traditionally been associated with less formal structures, such as woodland cabins and coastal cottages.” – Remodelista
Add a couple of Ercol’s Original Stacking Chairs at the eat-in kitchen table, a wire frame settee, and some simple brass accents and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous kitchen.
