Disclosure: Norrlands Trä have kindly agreed to collaborate with us on this project after I approached them.
Incidentally - I love the light wood shelf across the panelling in the picture above, do you like it too? Something to consider for the cabin!
Choosing the panelling:
I had no idea there were so many different options in terms of finish, width and style - all of which result in a slightly different look and feel. Here are some examples of the subtle differences:
2. Contemporary with a rustic touch
Bead panelling rose to popularity during 19th century industrialism and is often added to kitchens to create a traditional look. It also looks lovely in other parts of a cottage - as seen in the Swedish stairwell above. I love this look, but since our cabin is a new look, I felt that a modern aesthetic would make more sense.
What do you think? Do you have a favourite?
I can't wait to see our new panelling on the walls - but as you can see from the pictures below, we have a long way to go!
Message to my lovely Swedish Mother-in-law who is so generously letting us build our cabin in her summer cottage garden: I'm sorry, we promise order will be restored come summer!
I look forward to updating you all again soon.
