It’s cherry blossom time. I know this not from seeing cherry blossoms outside my window (unfortunately), but from seeing so many on Pinterest. I don’t think Boston is big in cherry blossoms. In my neighborhood it’s magnolia trees that bloom like crazy, though not quite yet. If you’re wild about cherry blossoms, when you’re done scrolling through these, click over to my “Cherry Blossoms in the Home” post on Wayfair’s blog today too.
I think this may be the most comprehensive look at plywood interiors on the web. I tend to get carried away with my Montage posts; obviously this is no exception. And I left out at least a dozen. (I’ll eventually use them on Design Milk.) I began collecting plywood images about a year ago when I started noticing them, and lately, there’s been an explosion of them, as well as plenty of blogger round-ups.
But that’s not the only reason for the post. We’re actually planning on installing a plywood floor in our new Delray Beach condo. We had the contractor quote a price for tile, which turned out to be quite high, although we sourced an inexpensive tile ($1.99/sq.ft). We MUST change the floor; there’s ivory carpet, that upon close inspection reveals pastel pink and blue flecks. Not only is it ugly (though it IS clean), it breaks up the space awkwardly. When I asked about a plywood floor, the contractor was intrigued. He’s never done one, so he’s started researching and is excited. Even better, it should cost only half as much. I PREFER wood. Very psyched.
He wants to do 4′x4′ squares rather than 4′x8′ boards in order to avoid a Vermont feel. I had initially thought we’d do planks, painted white (remember all the white rooms with color pops for inspiration?), but I’m coming around to the idea. Anybody have thoughts? Also, if we do squares, do we just seal it, without painting it, for the full-on unfinished, natural effect? I’d love your opinions on this!
As you think, scroll through these plywood rooms. All au naturel.
