Home Style: Painted Wood Walls

A dose of interior design inspiration:

The Barn painted wall

The idea of painting wood fills me with anxiety and excitement. Perhaps only design junkies can relate to that rush that comes with anticipating the failures and rewards of taking a decorating risk. I liken painting wood to coloring your hair for the first time.  You believe that the result will look new, fresh, playful, and fabulous, and yet… you may NEVER be able to get it back to it’s original color AGAIN! At least not without some suffering. But taking risks can be liberating. I love what New England designer Sarah Steinberg did with this converted barn. The rustic farmhouse frame appears light and youthful covered in this on-trend minty blue-green. Somehow I doubt the homeowner wasted a single moment mourning the loss of the natural wood finish.
