Most of us have seen it or lived with it at one point in our life and with panelling comes several schools of thought. There are the wood purists. There are the painters. And then there are the demo'ers. A complex quandary, debated for ages.
Our client opted to keep the panelling in her den, since it was cozy and woodsy. When we provided our vision boards and plan, it was a pretty big wake-up call. With new furnishings and crisp new accessories, the wood panels went from cozy and keepers to a bit more confusing. To paint or to remove or to keep?
Panelling has been on the uptick all over blogland, many folks adding it to their ceilings, bathrooms or even whole rooms to give texture and architectural interest. It can really do a lot to enhance a room. While proving to be a pain, the options are endless and don't have to involve simply painting it white. It looks great whitewashed, painted gray or any color!

Our friend, Lauren Leiss, painted her existing panelling white to neutralize her 70's style master bedroom.

Amber also added panelling in her recent bathroom reno.
I've been smitten with this nursery for months now, one of the best reveals I've seen in a while, and they too added the panelling.
Our best blog buddy, Linda, added some panelling to the ceiling of her master during the One Room Challenge. And we all know I love a good wood panelled ceiling.
A pretty easy fix, if you wanna keep it and play with it. But sometimes you just can't get past it.
