Dry Stack Panels Bedroom Accent Wall
A couple creates a stunning bedroom accent wall with Somerset Dry Stack panels in their Albuquerque, NM home.
New Mexico is an American contradiction. The heart of the Old West, it simultaneously enjoys a rich and vivid history, while still remaining largely unspoiled and undeveloped. That's why this historic state has so many new homes and constructions going up.
For a couple living in Albuquerque, the contrast between historic and modern style offered an opportunity; so they went out of their way to combine the two in their large and spacious bedroom.
Despite their home's modern decor, the homeowners chose to add an old-fashioned touch by adding a stone-look accent wall in their bedroom. They used Somerset Dry Stack panels to completely cover the headboard wall; and the result is fantastic.
The wall features the texture of real dry stacked stone; all painstakingly finished in realistic colors. It's beautifully timeless - the sort of thing you'd expect to find in a sexy luxury hotel room; not a home in New Mexico.
But despite its realistic look, the panels are molded entirely in high-density polyurethane foam. This material costs a fraction of what real stone would, and is much easier to install.
In fact, the panels installed directly onto the existing drywall with construction adhesive and screws; so the entire wall was finished in just a few hours.
You can see for yourself what a dramatic difference the accent wall made - it looks like it came right out of the Old West, and perfect for a home in the middle of what used to be the American frontier.
