Occasionally, panelling can add a nice architectural feel to a room. To be specific, I’m not talking of the dark vertical wood panelling that was popular in mid 60s-70s that you see everyone ripping out or painting over. I’m talking about white panelling done in a Georgian architectural style, as shown in the above photo. It adds a traditional element, and gives a nice contrast to modern furnishings and treatments.
Now, what’s special about the above photo is it’s wallpaper that appears to be panelling, which is just fantastic. While it’s not cheap (somewhere around £70 per roll), it most likely costs less than installing actual wood panelling, and it has the whole trompe l’oeil trickiness that us modern home owners love. Also, if you prefer a more ornate renaissance feel, Mineheart has a Stone Angels Wallpaper that mimics stone architectural details (shown below).
