Design Is In The Details

Every now and then, I stumble upon an image of a room that makes my knees weak. Sure, in most cases, the source of weakness comes from a classic chair, brilliantly antiqued kilim rug or a quirky collection of busts, yet sometimes what really gets me is the details of a room. A surprising staircase railing, an impromptu storage solution. Details are so often overlooked, yet so important when it comes to pulling a room together and infusing it with personality. Behold, a few of my favorite kitchens that showcase not only great design, but extraordinary detailing. Enjoy! In the above image, truck springs are re-purposed as stools, creating an industrial aesthetic in an otherwise seemingly mundane kitchen.

A modern kitchen gets a healthy dose of old world glamour with statement lighting and an over-the-top ceiling medallion. Amazing what a bit of texture can do to a room, yes?
