Shiplap, once primarily used on the exterior of historic homes, barns and outbuildings, is getting a lot of attention from the design and building world. As my Renovation & Design business consults on a project in Newport, I have shiplap on the brain. It is a cost-effective, striking addition to any interior or exterior space. Above, are photos from my kitchen renovation, where we used the material on the interior walls and ceiling, to add texture and depth to the space. Whether your style is modern or traditional, shiplap isn’t necessarily married to one style versus the other. Lighting, for example, can be a great element to dictate the aesthetic you’re trying to achieve. I’m currently coveting lighting from CB2, a source we use consistently in our design schemes.
