celerie kemble is awesome

February 16, 2012

have i ever mentioned that, in addition to an obsession with grasscloth (which has been the case since i was young - i'm not just jumping on board here), i also have a very large soft spot for wood paneling? totally obvious that i was a product of the 80s? yes, i think so.

but take one look at this kips bay decorator's showhouse library and tell me you wouldn't love to have a cozy room of wood:




of course, if you're as talented as celerie kemble, you're bound to get it right.

yup, she rocks. I've never seen a space she's done that I didn't love. The proportion and layers and perfect!

We have a lake house that has wood paneling in the family room and I just can't seem to 'fall in love' with this... but after seeing your images... I think I have softened just a tad! LOL Thanks for sharing... have a terrific Thursday

I am a huge fan of wood panelling too! And of grass cloth, for that matter. :)

Very cool. I think it works so well because everything else is super bright/white.

She is very talented. Love the warmth with the wood paneling.

If you like wood paneling, you'd love my grandparents house!
Normally not a fan, but I do love it here!

When eating lunch at a Thai food restaurant a few months ago, my husband had the idea to put up home-made wood paneling on one wall of our dining room. Which would mean replacing the grass cloth. What to do? What to do?

Wood walls are so tricky to get right! Of course, it helps when the walls are this beautiful to start with. There are so many gorgeous elements in this room :)

Well you know my eye is immediately drawn to the Lucite coffee table! And the marble brass desk. I'm so predictable. Love Celerie's work!

Just love every single thing about these images! PINNED!

Erin said...

Fabulous! I do think the light rugs keep it from feeling dark and cavey up in there. But in her hands the wood walls are uber chic!

I didn't think I was a fan until I saw that second image! Maybe the key is to balance it out with light upholstery and lucite. In that case, count me in! xx

That beautiful window brings out the whole feel of the room so much more, it looks so warm!
