More wall inspiration: wainscoting

pops of grey

For some reason I never really liked wainscoting. I always considered it to be associated with a very traditional country style of interior design, until I saw this dining room pictured above. By painting stripes on the wainscot and using modern white furniture, it actually adds something extra to this room.  It is also an easy way to add texture to a room. If the cap is big enough it even creates space for paintings or other decoration.

When I decided that wainscoting can actually look very nice, without looking too country, I found more examples that I liked and wanted to share with you. What do you think? Would you use it in your home?
