If you have seen pictures of my home you know that almost the entire main floor is covered in wainscot so it's safe to say I love wainscoting. My love affair with wood work on walls started with my grandparent's home in D.C. and continued into my teenage years when I was enthralled with Parisian interiors and now I just accept wainscoting as a way of life. It's always going to be a part of my interior design 'bag of tricks'.

So with that said, I thought I would post my favorite pictures of wainscoting to inspire you.

Let's start with my favorite :)

And here are my other favorites...
These are more traditional/European

These are board + batten or more modern/updated wainscoting...

Do you have a favorite style? Are you more traditional or modern?
