Looks & Feels Like Real Wood - Thibaut Eastwood

Walking into Scott Cooke's Gentleman's Retreat in the DC Design House for the first time had me reaching out to touch the walls, certain he had clad them in wood.  After touching them I was still surprised to be told it wasn't wood but Thibault Eastwood - a vinyl, embossed wall covering.  It looks and feel that real.

The wall covering creates a rich backdrop for Scott's serene and tailored design.  Thibaut Eastwood also happens to be scrubbable which means it can serve heavy duty in in mud rooms, foyers, family rooms, vacation cottages, etc. If you're looking for a paneled look and and real wood isn't the right choice, be sure to check it out.

Now back to this beautiful room inspired by Bill Blass. Love the grouping of photographs near the bed and the abstract prints above the bureau.

The window pane plaid and the barley twist legs on the ottomans give it a bit of a Scottish vibe for me - or maybe that's because I've been binge watching Outlander these last few weeks.

The coverlet has a cut-out for a tailored look on the antique poster bed.

Michele that soft "wood" tone on the bedroom walls is perfect and the art, truly stunning, yet the master bedroom is soft and oh so comforting!

Convincing - really does appear to be real wood. We are trying to schedule a visit to the show house. We have been busy with home remodeling projects and I'm bummed I missed the cherry blossoms in Kenwood. It is my first year to miss them.

I have a box of it sitting right in my office ready to go to a clients and it is fabulous! The texture is amazing and its so washable! Its going in a study room for 3 children! xo K


They just put that wallpaper up in the showroom here at ADAC! It definitely has so much texture to it. I love the modern but classic feel to this room.
