Angel in the details

Luckily, that old saying is true; the angel is in the details. Well, maybe that’s not the exact expression. For our purposes, though, it is. There are a number of options to create that ambience of elegance not by focusing on the grand, the sweeping, the expensive which include the above, and go beyond.

Details are powerful. It is very often the finer textures and contrasts lend a space that much sought-after atmosphere where grander and more expensive designs often fail to reproduce. These details are the pieces, the fixtures, the heirlooms, that we come to treasure the most. They are the elements that remind us of our personal senses of style, and remind us that we’re home at the same time.
