Illustrious paneling

So when exactly did wood paneling stop being associated with basement rec rooms and start showing up in super-stylish homes? I think the look needs to be balanced out with other wall treatments, but high-quality paneling is a trend I'm liking.

Check out that cabinet in the bottom photo! Oooh.

I like the paneling - given that I grew up in a house that had the original stuff, that's saying something.

And I love that cabinet - do you think if you found the right basic piece, it would be easy enough to recreate with a high-res blow up and some decoupage skills?

Perhaps. It might also be silkscreened right onto the doors. It's hard to tell.

Everything about that bottom picture is rocking my world.

You can have digital images made into wallpaper that could easily be transferred to any flat surface.

The last image is stunning. I want dibs on that cabinet too. My diy skills are meager, but that does seem really doable. Hmmmm....
