It's All In the Details

Good morning. I ended my post yesterday letting you know that I am starting another new (semi) regular feature on the blog today called It's All In the Details . In these posts I am going to share images where I see simple, impactful details taking a great design to an even higher level. Design really is in the details. Starting with good bones almost takes you to the finish line, details win the race.

Here are the seemingly simple to the eye design choices that I have been blown away by recently. These "simple" details are what turn these rooms into havens.

The first design is by Sean Anderson, (who is amazing). The way the sink and line of windows is nestled in so that the cabinetry is flush with the wall is an exquisite detail. The kitchen is large enough to spare the "corner space" and the room is so much better because of it; not to mention the windows meeting the countertop, the stone apron front sink, the pendant sconce, the beams and the artwork! They are all perfection.

This next image is a design by Katie Rosenfeld and Company. Katie is another designer I love, love, love. The transom window above the track to this laundry room barn door is gorgeous. I am also a huge fan of French barn doors and these are next level!

The way the picture is hung in this hallway designed by Tamsin Johnson is fantastic. I love the wide table too. This artwork could have been hung conventionally and the space would still be very attractive, the detail of the rod and wire though is amazing.

This bathroom designed by Joanna Gaines has a clever and cost saving detail: the way the faucet for the tub is built into a slightly protruding wall. Tub filler faucets can be extremely expensive and this installation technique opens the options for fixture choices substantially. It also makes the plumbing rough in much more cost effective. And the best part - it is beautiful!

The last two detail designs are in bathrooms too. Both of these bathrooms feature furniture pieces in the space rather than traditional bathroom cabinetry and that detail takes them to the next level.

The first is a self proclaimed budget remodel by Kismet House that has made the best use out of every square inch of space. Details galore - please take a look at the paneled walls and ceiling all painted the same color; the painted floors, the light fixture, the sink, the artwork and of course the antique cabinet. A tremendous amount of charm packed into a small space.

The next and last image for today is this bathroom by Stef Turner. The art deco cabinet and light fixture above it make the room!

I hope you agree that inspiration is everywhere, especially in the details! I will be back tomorrow with another new feature - Vignettes of the Month where I will share images of small parts of a room where the styling makes a huge visual impact. See you then!
