Architectural Details

In architecture and design, the devil really is in the details. It’s the little things in a space or home that tie together the history, the present, and the future

In the South, we have so many architectural gems like this one in Mobile, Alabama, that uses unique materials and designs to give character and to create a must-have porch and an ornate entry.

Aqua Chicago

Unique details also give life architectural design like Aqua Chicago. The unusual character of both the Alabama home and Chicago high rise make the design and uncover the personality of a space. Once you grasp the personality, a good interior designer can lead the conversation between past and present.

Architecture is like the skeleton for beautiful homes and buildings – I love to see the different “bones” used in houses and buildings around the world.

How would you mix some of your favorite architectural design details into your home?
