Ladies, I need your help deciding on a few things for the new house. I have a look that I think I'm going for, but I have no idea how to execute!
I love, love, love creams, linen, blues, and comfort in a home. Our last house was full of red, green and brown. This was mainly because it was our first home and we had a hodgepodge of stuff given to use. I know it's going to take some time, but I want this new house to be reflective of our taste and style.
|I just love this look!|
Our builder had planned on staining beater board and cypress beams on our kitchen ceiling. However, I just can't picture how this will work and he's willing to let me paint the ceiling instead. My fears in staining the wood on the ceiling is that it will close the room in and make the ceilings feel like they're not 10 ft. ceilings. I love everything about the house, but this detail. And the kitchen is the cornerstone of the house, so it has to be right!
So, my question for you - paint or stain?!? Here are two examples that I've found of paint vs. stain. I wish I had photo credits, but I can't remember where I pulled these from!
