Go geometric with board and batten

Working with clients who craved a feature wall in their family room, Sallie Lord, the founder of Grey Hunt Interiors in Chantilly, Virginia, decided to go geometric and play off the space’s coffered ceiling with a square board and batten design. For the paint color, she chose Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black. “We wanted the colors in the space to really visually pop and showcase the different colors and textures in the design,” Lord says.

Say yes to shiplap

Lord worked with architect Brad Norris of Norris Architecture to create plenty of fun nooks in this family home, including the wall-size one seen here, which contains a white shiplap backing and becomes the focal point of this entryway.
