Characterized by warmth and simplicity, natural textures and materials like wood or galvanized steel, elements of modern farmhouse design have been finding their way into more and more homes.  Think kitchens with warm wood details and white shaker cabinets or living rooms with textural features and natural embellishments.  It’s not surprising then that these same elements are making their way into more remote areas of the home like closets, garages and home offices. We’ve recently installed wood accent walls in several of our projects at the request of our clients.  And why not?  Incorporating natural textures like a wood wall adds not only an element of warmth but also character and interest.  Combined with clean lined cabinetry, it even can add a modern edge to a space.
