Updating older dark paneled house

A 1904 home in Atherton, CA – built in the Georgian/Federal neo-classical style.

beautifully renovated by Architect David-Buergler, Designer Dara Rosenfeld and builder-Paul Conrado.

In the '60s and '70s there was that awful faux-wood paneling all over living rooms. And now we're seeing the emergence of a different kind of wood paneling — less rustic, more elegant, and strangely perfect for a modern space.

In this Montreal home, Shou Sugi Ban (Japanese method of charring wood) paneling behind the bed adds a touch of modern warmth.

I also included a few that are either English or American Georgian which started earlier, but is covered in this time period. This is a parlor at George Washington’s Mount Vernon home which was built a little earlier and is therefore in the Colonial Period, but it is close-by.

I love how all of the painted wood paneling is only one color. Here we can see a mix of wood stain paneling and painted wood paneling. Yes, too formal, but there is no wood trim in sight.

Black paneling makes a similarly dramatic statement in this bedroom from Studio Mc Gee.

I apologize because there were some server issues on Tuesday night, and some people had trouble getting onto the site.

But my amazing techie, Tim Gary of Mindcue fixed in no time flat.

However it is a bit heavy and the wood has many knots.

It seems as though it was lime washed at some point to tone down the orange tone of the wood.

This is another view of the same room which is a room at the Metropolitan Museum of Art – Originally, the Colden House built in Coldenham, New York Again, it is all painted ONE COLOR. And it’s not that they never painted the trim white and the walls a color.
