It is said that good design is in the details, and I could not agree more.
Often times I find myself hating things about a room in my house and its usually something large: the TV stand, the couch, the curtains, the rug, etc. To be honest I don't have unlimited funds to go out and change those, but what I can change is the smaller details. Recently I have been trying to appreciate what I can not change (totally easier said than done when you are a design freak, as I could literally rip out my hair
sometimes most times) and turn my focus to the smaller details.
Here are a few spaces where the details are really done well and what I am noticing in each room
I LOVE how the desk is made to look like a piece of furniture- the bottom of the file drawer is perfection. I also love the trim on the shades, and the gold on the inside of the lamp shade.
This is the perfect little space. Things I am noticing are: the sideways chevron chest- LOVE, the ruffles on the drapes (which are on the bottoms as well) and the little chevron pencil cup- so cute!
love that headboard shape and the nailhead trim, how there is a recessed circle around the drawer pulls, the small art that is hung under each mirror, the lace trimmed pillows, and how the side tables are covered in glass (great for those of you who like to keep drinks next to the bed, this way you wont get those nasty water rings)
Tobi Fairley, the queen of color and details does it again! Just about everything in this room is amazing but my most favorite things in this room are those yellow stools at the end of the bed. They aren't your typical circle or square shape- its like a really fat quatrefoil shape.
So tell me my lovely readers, what details are you loving lately?
