The combination of limewashed Oak boards and crisp white walls has been yet another slight obsession of mine for a couple of years now. In the stunning home in Trigg that I was lucky enough to work on across 07-09 (it took a while as the owners would tell you!) we installed gorgeous wide European Oak floorboards (from Classique Floorboards) which were then sanded and limewashed with Porters Wood Wash. We used an American White Oak veneer from Briggs Veneers, which we also limewashed with the same wood wash, as a feature in the kitchen cabinetry and some gorgeous shelving either side of the fireplace in the Lounge room. Unfortunately (for me) the lovely owners moved to Hong Kong just a month before the project finished and have rented out their stunning new home. I did not manage to get any photographs of the house before they left… cry…

To give you an idea of how beautiful the timber is, here are some stunning images recently featured on Desire to Inspire courtesy of the timber company Royal Oak by Harper & Sandilands. Oh sooooo divine! Enjoy!

    I LOVE this house and share your obsession… why don’t you email the owners and ask them to send you some pictures?? So calming and serene, I don’t know how to mesh my love for this look with my love for hot pink… they just don’t go together :(.

    I would never leave this house. I would wear pj’s all day .. sip tea and read books. I just bought those chairs today too (oldies but goodies) so it makes it seem even more ‘me’. Good searching (-:
