Wainscoting...a client up-date

I wanted to update you on a clients home...
I've had so much fun working on this home....
Its very rewarding when clients love everything about the finished product....
Sometimes it can be a challenge to bring together the husband's taste and the wife's taste when they are on opposite scales of design...
The wife likes country farm....
She would love to take an old barn and turn it into a home...the rustic, the better...
The husband likes a refined feel...he likes traditional, french style...but they both love red, white and blue...

These are the before pictures of their living room.

They both agreed that they wanted their living room to be on the casual side and they both wanted wainscoting...

I had the wainscoting painted Dunn Edward's Swiss Coffee...
I tried so many different whites and they just looked dirty....
This white is a warm white...

We are still waiting for a few pieces to come in and art work and then I need to stage it for photos... but I thought you might want a little sneak peek!


  1. Julie,
    This is so pretty. I imagine your clients are thrilled with the transition. I use Swiss Coffee on all of our trim. It's warm and fresh.

  2. I love this transformation. The paneling and fabric choices are my favorite. I just painted my upstairs in RL Cove. I had the hardest time finding a good white. I'll test yours for my trim work.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the rest.

  3. I love what I see so far. Can't wait to see it all.

  4. Wow, what a beautiful transformation! Can't wait to see more!

  5. That wainscoting looks amazing! Looking forward to seeing how the rest of it plays out!

  6. You are working magic here! Can't wait to see the finished rooms!

  7. you're killing me making us wait! cant wait for more :)

  8. Benjamin Moore White Dove is also a no fail white

  9. Absolutely gorgeous. I want every wall in my house to be wainscoted and painted this color!

  10. Sweet Julie! (It's been while since I dropped by... Combination of burn out and swamped with work...) Liking the wine rack, too! Can't wait to the finished room.


  11. That looks really beautiful. I've thought about doing similar moldings in my humble cottage to bring a few rooms up to notch but I was just going to do moldings. What do the panels achieve that you added inside the moldings? Does that just give it a beefier look?

  12. Wow! I can't wait to see the rest of the room makeover - the wainscoting looks amazing!
