Got a nickel? Great, then you can pull off a contemporary shiplap look.
“When you use shiplap, clean installation is what makes it look contemporary rather than country,” says Nashville-based interior designer Jason Arnold. “Use a nickel as a spacer between boards to give it a very uniform, modern look.”
In this Nashville home Arnold designed, an entire wall of the guest bedroom is covered in uniformly-spaced shiplap — even the closet doors.
