Transformative architectural embellishments offer a simple way to transform a ho-hum room into a finely decorated masterpiece. These architectural details help to create an interior environment in which people genuinely enjoy spending time together.
It's so easy to focus on the big picture items when thinking about decorating your home. Of course, the larger pieces are important in contributing to the look and feel of your home's interior, but too often the smaller embellishments are forgotten, and the opportunity to create an interior that genuinely sings is missed.
The minute architectural details aren't complicated or pricey; instead, they are the simple touches that manage to provide the finishing elements that effectively tie a room together. Without these embellishments, a room can still look fine, but it almost seems as if it's a bit bland or that something is missing. Including small exuberant details such as panel moldings, stair brackets, or a strategically-placed wall niche can go a long way toward adding style and panache.
Take panel moldings, for example. These simple pieces frame a wall, a window, or another detail on a wall, and they can range from simple beveled designs to more ornate scrolled pieces. A panel molding embellishment can be easily placed and painted either to match the existing wall color or in a complementary color for added emphasis. The resultant flair provides a sense of elegance and closure to any room's decorating style.
You may have noticed for quite some time, how designers implemented grey as their trusted beige! This neutral color selection creates an airy feeling in this room setting. To create a good flow in a space you can paint all architectural accents on the wall the same color, they still will provide a distinguish details while creating a more contemporary look. The wall panels encase the sconces creating a crisp cohesiveness; the glass tiles on the fireplace surround selected in grey hues introducing a different texture, creating interest, and adding depth into the design.
For homes with a staircase, the easy addition of stair brackets dresses up the stair treads with a minimum of effort. These graceful embellishments, which come in the right- or left-facing designs, help to define the staircase and draw the eye in an unobtrusive yet charming way.
Wall niches provide one of the most versatile methods in which to dress up a room or hallway. Once used to showcase works of art, a wall niche now has a myriad of uses in a home and provides interest and depth. Indeed, a wall niche can also add functionality in addition to artistic interest; consider adding a simple niche in an entryway as the perfect place for keys and the mail. A niche can blend in with the existing walls or can be painted in vibrant colors or patterns to serve as the artistic focal point for a room or a hallway.
Whatever the architectural details you choose to embellish your home, the finished product will offer a transformative impact and provide a feeling of warmth and completeness.
