Distressed Walls: Inspiration Gallery

In this era of Undecorate and upcycling, there is a lot of value on the authentic patina, on the mix of old and new. One way this is manifesting is in artfully distressed walls — paint that looks like it’s peeling or cracked and old wood paneling that hasn’t been re-finished. To me it’s an appealingly Bohemian look, but I’m not sure I would adopt it in my own home. What do you think?
