interior wall cladding using boards


So no one told me that forming a startup is not a walk in the park! I have been trying out something that’s coming up pretty well and it turns three months old today! yay! which in turn has been consuming much of my time (not complaining at all) only bad thing Is that I’ve had pretty much no time to write, I know they say women are born multi-taskers but …I probably…am a man. Aaanyway, I thought I’d write something this weekend that I had a little bit of time off!

So last week I went to two restaurants in a certain small town (in search of the perfect muffin) and I fell in love with the simple concepts they used to make their accent walls!!! The first restaurant, my exhibit A (always wanted to say that) used medium density fibre boards (MDF’s) to form their accent wall and to also act as a back drop for the pendant light fixtures on their ceiling. I thought it looked great and effortlessly creative since they even went ahead and painted on some of them to break the monotony and form a pattern. The only problem was that the boards on the ceiling were beginning to warp ergo, creating a certain kind of an unpleasant imbalance which might become a design fail in the future.

My two cents; they’d have cut the boards into less bulkier pieces instead of using full boards and found a much stronger way to hold them up. All in all, I loved the simplicity.



The second restaurant used 4*2 lumber to create their accent wall. This one made me pretty pleased because they didn’t even try too hard to think about how to make the wall stand out but it did. Only thing they used is clear vanish to make them shine a little and down lighters to send just a little bit of attention their way.


My third exhibit was a hospital in Nairobi, they had a whole wall, painted in all white, with interlocking 300*300 cm square boxes made of MDF boards and it looked totally cool, white is moody sometimes but how they used it here played out quite elegantly. You’d definitely forget you were sick once you stepped in! Like… ‘Sorry doc, not today.’


What I learnt from these designs is that, simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication…all that talk on less is more is true guys : )

Have a beautiful beautiful week  ; )

*peace and laughter*
