From the living room to the bedroom, passing by the terrace to the bathroom, wood has made a huge comeback into our home decor. Strong, sustainable and easy to change when desired, the latter remains a timeless choice.

Stickers, decorative panels or wood paneling, you'll find them in different forms. The relief panels in three dimensions still offer a stylized effect and some originality! Personally, I'd advise you to choose only one wall or just a portion of the wall to cover the latter with wood, otherwise it'll be too much.
