It’s All in the “DETAILS”

Rain on me!

”Custom DDT Designed” Chalk Board!

Great Design truly is ALL in the details! Why do we all love a nicer hotel over a motel? If  you’ve ever been to a W Hotel you can see with your eyes how plush and above average their gorgeous bedding is, why not bring that into your own home? Layering of pillows, sheets, blankets and fluffy comforters create a high-end hotel look and contribute to a restful sleep.

One of the best ways to bring in your own personality it to customize your details with textiles  place two or three fabrics from the ceiling to the floor implementing them into window treatments, pillows, wall art in frames, area rugs, and even lamp shades.

A small dresser can make a dramatic detail statement in a powder room vs a generic store-bought vanity or have fun with your exterior details just as much as your home’s interior, try hanging a large mirror on a covered porch or out in your garden propped up next to a vintage bench.

A few Tips to remember – Mix and match, the more “matchy” your design is, the less detailed and custom it will look, consider two dining chairs at the ends of your table that have the same or similar finish but not necessarily exactly the same, have two different table lamps at each end of your sofa. Just about anything can be re purposed to whatever your imagination can conjure up, what will you do to create a detailed design in your home, have fun and go a little wild even if it’s not in your comfort zone?!

Bathroom Fixtures can make all the difference in the overall look of your baths! Are yours old or just outdated? Consider an update, most faucets are under the $100 price point! It’s ALL about the “DETAILS”!!

This is one of the “Best” ways to create your own unique look to your space, create or have a pro design for you, pillow and window treatments, create continuity by bringing your pillow textile into your dining room as a table runner!

Detail your own projects such as pillows, bedding, & linens with ribbons & trimming from your local fabric store, they will really make a room pop and will be a fraction of the cost!
