and loads of old wood wall character
Paired with hardwood floors and bead board and beams on the ceiling
it’s love when I walk into a room and see them.
But I didn’t always feel that way.
and when I first walked in- I felt a little overwhelmed and claustrophobic
like I needed to turn on 150 lights
even with the windows and doors open.

In the kitchen. In the bathroom. In the hallway. In the bedrooms. In the cottage.
with those wood walls
but to me
the look of that knotty pine was taking over.
So it’s safe to say that I didn’t love them when I saw them…
but I didn’t hate them either.
They were beautifully detailed with patterned grooves
and they are thick- thick- thick pine-and original to the house.
So even though there was no insulation behind them- the boards are nailed directly to the studs
and even though they were dark and dreary
brushed on by hand to fully cover but
the rooms felt 500 times bigger, brighter,
warmer and welcoming.
