Architectural Details

When designing interiors, aside from examining the space, learning about the client’s taste, needs, and lifestyle, and before creating a furniture and lighting plan- adding architectural details to the space creates elegance, even in an empty room! I love trim work; it adds depth, texture, richness and sophistication to any space.

I would like to share with you some inspirational images... showcasing the collaboration between the architects and the interior designers. What do you think? Which one is your favorite?

Beautiful pictures! I love how Saladino used the architectural detail to bring the room down in size, to prevent it from feeling too cavernous.

The architectural design in Suzanne Kasler space was by Bill Baker. They have worked together on many projects.
