I’ve always preferred to believe god was in the details rather than the devil. It’s a far more positive way of sustaining the focus and the energy needed to get finishing details right. Especially now, when the pressure is on for our team to finish the finely crafted and designed homes we’ve been working on for nearly two years.
Every space plan, cabinetry design, coffered ceiling, tile detail, fixture, finish, color and wall covering (this is an endless list) takes its place in the overall vision we’ve had for the home. And when clients, and even our builder friends we’ve worked with side-by-side, begin to see color go on the walls and light fixtures installed, they breathe a sigh of relief.
They’ve trusted (sometimes skeptically, but that’s ok; we’re used to the raised eyebrows) our ability to see the final finish and lead decisions about the details we knew to be truly important to the overall design. And that trust is validated when they stand back and see how the wall covering in the dining room works with the pantry color, and kitchen light fixtures complement the stone countertops. That “I get it moment” for our clients is pure payoff for us.
Of course it doesn’t end there; just as the hardwood, stone, tile and color go in, there’s another layer of detail ready to be installed. Features such as cabinetry hardware, the restored settee, the custom draperies and the commissioned artwork truly finish the work and makes those rooms sing.
Stay tuned as we finish and share sneak peeks of the Summer ’17 Homes by taste. Until then, snapshots of finished interior details follow, to inspire you this summer.
Only the best,
