BLEND IT WITH OTHER MATERIALS
Arnold suggests mixing shiplap with materials like brick, marble or concrete for a contemporary, urban aesthetic.
“Bringing in wood automatically softens the space to help counteract really cold concrete or brick, which is common in urban lofts,” says Arnold. “It’s also really great with marble or any other type of stone.”
If you have a kitchen with, say, marble counters, try accenting the backsplash with shiplap. Alternatively, if your living room has plenty of exposed brick, try one accent wall in shiplap.
