In interior design, repeating patterns in different parts of a house can make it look nice and consistent. At 308 Wonderwood, we did just that. We used a pattern called herringbone in four different places to make everything match and look really good. We made some small changes to keep it interesting. Let's take a closer look at these patterns and see how they make the house look even better.
When you pull up to 308 Wonderwood, you can't miss the impressive 2.5-car garage. To make a statement in this space, this is the first place you will see the herringbone pattern. Although this pattern isn't completely new for garages, it really stands out here because of the garage's large size. The herringbone design balances the large wooden beams above the garage and of course, these awesome gas lanterns. We source our garage doors from American Garage Door Systems.
As we enter the main part of the house, we wanted to make sure the kitchen island fit in perfectly with everything around it. We used the same herringbone pattern from the garage and placed it in the space under the island. To make it blend in nicely, we stained the white oak to match the rest of the kitchen. This made everything look cohesive and connected. The island is not just a useful centerpiece, but it also looks really beautiful and fits in with the overall design of the kitchen.
We were excited to use the herringbone pattern on a panel-ready fridge for the first time. By using the same stain and white oak as the island, the fridge and freezer fit perfectly with the kitchen's style. This subtle repeating pattern brings everything together without making the space feel too busy. It may seem small, but it's a clever design choice to incorporate repeating patterns.
The last place we added a repeating pattern was the scullery. Here, we installed floating shelves and decided to incorporate the herringbone pattern in a slightly different way. Rather than using stained white oak, we painted the pattern to blend cohesively with the cabinetry. This change to the pattern makes it special and keeps a similar look throughout the house.
