We all know that, 'design is in the details,' so today I thought I'd share a few images where those extra little somethings make all the difference in my mind.
What first caught my attention in this space were the beautiful moldings and fluted half columns, but the gold leaf detailing is what makes them completely irresistible to me! This simple embellishment takes a casual, laid back room, injects a whole lot of glamour and succeeds in creating a unique and original space!
The sunlight, simplicity, and freshness all draw me into this adorable little sitting area. But the cute ties on the curtains, the clear finials on the rod, and the stripes on the pillows keep my eyes bouncing around the room with delight!
When I first saw this stairwell, I had never seen anything like it before! I'm not sure, but I suspect this is the work of the talented David Wiseman (please correct me if I am wrong). The ornate flowers and reference to nature add so much beauty and dimension to the space, it's clear to see what a different the details can make.
Anna Spiro's bathroom has quickly become a favorite of mine ever since Catherine Shield, writer for Vogue Australia, first featured it. And - surprise surprise - the mirrors are what did it for me! Adding two different shapes and colors, tied in by their antique quality set against a contemporary backdrop of white subway titles is the perfect example of how an overall look is truly created by the details.
Happy long, holiday weekend (if you're in the USA, that is)! See you Tuesday. xoxo Crystal
