Recently my brother asked me take a crack at designing a feature wall in their home. The only requirement I had was to try to integrate reclaimed wood (aka barn board). Their home is a new build, they just moved in last year. And while it has a bit of a chic rustic feel to it, it is also quite contemporary. With beautiful cream/beige kitchen cabinets, granite countertops and a simple slate coloured backsplash.
I have to qualify, that my brother still lives in Manitoba. So coming up with a design is a tiny bit harder in that I don’t have access to suppliers to check out what is available for materials and mainly see the entire space together. What I do have on my side are the actual plans (woo hoo!!) and the fact that my brother and my dad have done a lot of the work in the house, and plan to do this work as well.
I drew inspiration from one picture in particular, shown below
