We Brits call it tongue and groove, our cousins across the Atlantic call it beadboard or wainscotting, but whatever it was called it's always been solid... until now.
A blogging friend of mine..' hello Clara' did a post recently about what she was thinking of using on her bedroom walls and this new paper version of beadboard is one of her potential choices..
I knew I'd just seen it used in a magazine, and thought it was a blinding idea.. so I went to find it, and here it is..

But the fact that the tongue & groove below the dado rail was a wallpaper, just blew me away.
|The real thing does still look great though.|
So it seems I'm coming quite late to the party... with many bloggers it seems having caught on to this product already over the last couple of years.
In fact it's interesting that bloggers had caught onto it when the magazines evidently hadn't.
Which leads onto a topic I won't cover today, but that I have been thinking about more and more lately and will blog about soon.
Namely.. 'Are home decorating magazines now obsolete ? Discuss'.
I know what I think.. but more on that next time.
