Why We Love It

I live in a city where affordable houses rarely have high ceilings, so the soaring woodwork in this Cottage Living house fills me with longing. It's also nice to see such a grand space furnished with mid-century furniture rather than the usual New Orleans fare of French antiques.

What Makes It Work

The millwork, which is no surprise since this is a woodworker's house, distinguishes the interior walls and adds character where there was none.

Steal This Idea

A beaded board wainscot isn't hard to do yourself with panels from a local hardware store and simple molding.
