Beadboard love...

There is something so cozy and inviting about a room that has beadboard, especially when it's on the ceiling.

We're used to seeing beadboard lining the lower chair rail of a room. But putting it on the ceiling adds immediate interest and warms up an otherwise run-of-the-mill ceiling.

I am a huge fan of the beachy cottage vibe, but I can't commit to designing an entire house or even an entire room in that style. The beadboard on the ceiling helps bring in elements of the cottage look while pairing it with other styles. I love the sleek look of modern lines paired with the weight of vintage furniture underneath a sky full of beadboard. It evokes a lived-in, always-been-this-way feel that seems almost effortless.

And it's not just for kitchens and dining rooms. Check out this bedroom.

I dream of having a breezy front porch like one of these some day.

But it sure does look good in the kitchen. Maybe some day....
