currently loving: wood paneling

The first time I ever saw wood paneling used in a modern context was in an issue of Dwell Magazine in high school. I was blown away for two reasons: one, I had never seen a magazine so amazing in my life, and two, I had never seen wood paneling used in any setting other than dated basements and family rooms, (often accompanied by a tacky floral couch and some beige carpet). While garish, 70s-era paneling can still be found in plenty of dens and dive bars, the trendy new wave of wood walls has taken over and I'm a bit obsessed. It adds organic warmth and texture to a room while remaining simple and understated. It's also easy to do yourself at home as an accent wall, headboard, or tabletop.
