Design Trend: Shiplap

At the start of each new year there's a lot of chatter about what will the design trends be that year and what will be "out".  One trend I started to see a lot of in 2015 and I think will explode in 2016 is shiplap!  Shiplap is long boards applied to the wall as a decorative paneling.  

And while it's nothing new in the world of construction it is becoming a huge trend in decorating. 

It can be used in a shabby chic/ rustic way or as it's starting to grow in popularity, I'm seeing it replacing wainscoting in transitional and modern decor.

Not usually a fan of really dark walls, but this slate color works great with the stark white - also love the shiplap wall treatment:

I love it being used as an accent wall.

Or as a detail above the mantle.
Gorgeous Fireplace Makeover. I want to put molding around my ugly brick fireplace to update it.:

Is shiplap the new wainscoting?  Probably not but get ready to see it everywhere this year!
