The shiplap trend extends beyond the walls of your home into this gorgeous "she shed." If you didn't want one before, you will now. You don't have to have a spare room to find solace, and you don't have to live at the beach to have your own seaside cottage. Let the men have their man caves -- we'll take this she shed from Finding Silver Pennies.

9. Stairway

The shiplap in this lake house leading upstairs is super charming. It's a little more rustic than some; you can see the nail holes as well as the knottiness of the wood. It works well for the space, and it's fairly hardy. Find out more at Pencil Shavings Studio.

10. Reading Nook

This comfortable beachy nook  from Talk of the House definitely feels more on the rustic side with the whitewashed walls and exposed beams (side note: gingham cushions! Yes!).

11. Master Bathroom

There's absolutely nothing rustic about the extra broad shiplap in this master bathroom from Wiseman and Gale Interiors. Vintage touches like the chrome fixtures and sink detailing add another layer of polish.

12. Kitchen

Here's the chicest shiplap kitchen via Style Me Pretty. The gorgeous green island with the white shiplap walls screams high style. Plus, that abstract painting pulls in the color of the island perfectly.

13. Restaurant

The restaurant banquette found via Remodelista feels expertly designed to feel rustic and luxe thanks to a mixture of fabrics and textures. Single light sconces provide the finishing touch of vintage style.
