Shiplap, shiplap, shiplap! With a twist.

I feel like all we’ve heard about the last 2 years on design TV is shiplap, shiplap, shiplap!  Thanks to Chip and Jo on HGTV’s Fixer Upper the 6-inch-wide horizontal wood planking has become a popular design feature for a light, yet rustic farmhouse look.  But what about a twist on this traditional shiplap look?  I was flipping through the LL Bean Home Summer 2017 Catalog and while I’m not a huge fan of their very country looking furniture, I was taken by a few shots with a natural ashy wood colored shiplap.  Even styled with their basic furniture this version of shiplap lended a modern styling to the overall look.  So, I went on a search for some other versions of shiplap than the basic white and found a few great looks that I wanted to share.  Turns out shiplap looks great in natural wood, a rainbow of colors, and even in black!
