Blogger Reveal: A Hamptons Reclaimed Wood Family Room

By: Carmen Ballock-Bunt
Posted In: News

Sarah, a working mom of active boys, reached out to Stephanie Pohlman Designs to re-design her living room. She wanted a space that would be both functional and beautiful. Stephanie helped her realize that, “Having two boys doesn’t mean [she has] to sacrifice on style.”

When the two embarked on the transformation of Sarah’s living room, they reached out to us and asked if we’d help. We loved Stephanie’s vision of incorporating texture through using both interesting textiles and reclaimed wood wall decor rather than layering artwork on an expansive wall in Sarah’s living room. So, we hopped on board and helped them create their vision using one of our best sellers, Hamptons Pine Wood Planks.

While some would say that our Hamptons Reclaimed Wood Planks are our version of shiplap, we like to see it as more than that. Hamptons wood paneling is the epitome of sophistication. The natural wood grain of the wood, and the rippled texture help give the room a relaxed feeling, while the clean white color adds modern elegance to the space.

Sarah’s living room transformation went from nice to WOW in a matter of a day. We love the gorgeous herringbone design that she chose and think it incorporates an eye-catching sense of style. Stephanie and Sarah paired our white pine planks with a neutral color palette and pops of naturally stained wood elements like a bamboo rattan chair and a blanket ladder for a fashionable, current look.

Stephanie loves to make sure she works with her clients to get the look they want, while keeping it on trend. She says, the idea of minimalism definitely played a role in choosing Hamptons, “I love the simplicity of the Hamptons color,” and “Hamptons has just enough distressing to not be overpowering.”

Stephanie really hit the nail on the head with this look. Sarah mentioned to us that she entertains a lot and since installing Stikwood, people who enter her home have said things like:

  • “WOW!  Your house is stunning”
  • “OMG I love that wall, what is that?”  
  • “Is that real wood?”
  • “I’m obsessed with that wall.”

Stephanie’s goal was to make sure she gave Sarah a place to come home to every day and spend time with her family. She wanted to add accents that helped create that cozy, family friendly environment she knew Sarah would love. We're thrilled with how Hamptons reclaimed wood planks helped her do just that.

How Carter Crandall Chose The Perfect Stikwood Design

Carter Crandall, an interior designer from Blythe Interiors, recently worked on a small 10' x 10' canyon oasis that happened to start as a shed. Her clients, originally from the Pacific Northwest and Northern Idaho, love hiking, camping and anything to do with the outdoors, so Carter wanted to create a space that brought the outdoors in. She also wanted to make sure that she introduced some California Chic style. We recently interviewed Carter about the project and are thrilled to walk you through how she decided to use Reclaimed Weathered Wood White as her Stikwood design in this amazing space that they have named Nestled in Nature.
