Decorative Details

May 27, 2011

Here’s my latest round up of images that focus on the details in a room. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately as it won’t be too long before I’m in the decorating phase of my half bathroom remodel. Exciting!

There’s some classically well done styling going on in this photo. Variety, depth, and creativity make for a lovely display. Via My White Room.

A happy mix of vintage art and pieces from Etsy are on display. My favorite is the fuzzy little handmade llama by everyeskimo. This homeowner runs two Etsy shops herself. Via Design*Sponge.

If I was going to do shabby, this is how I’d do it. Key pieces that have the appearance (or reality) or extreme age can bring a sense of weightiness and meaning to a room. This worn-in chest of drawers belongs in a room that is comfortable, relaxed and well-loved. Via My White Room.

What an adorable message they’ve embroidered onto this headboard. I also love the animal figurine collection. I have been hoping to find some sweet little pieces like those for myself, in fact. Though I would probably veer less towards the cutesy side of things. Styled by Sofie Lawett via From Scandinavia with love.

Such beautiful colors. Photographed by Denise Grünstein.

I find this kind of old wall construction so charming. I’m not even sure what exactly it’s made of or what kind of age it indicates, but it seems like something straight out of a fairy tale. I think it’d be lovely to have a little cottage for vacationing and I’d definitely consider a spot like this.  Many more pictures of this wonderful home at 79 ideas, photographed by Lonngren/Widell.

The other day I was watching an episode of House Hunters International on HGTV, and I wish I could remember where in the world they were, but it was a couple looking to buy a home with breathtaking sea views in an area that was not very developed and they ended up choosing a positively ancient property at the top of a steep hill. It was several hundred years old, made of some sort of stone or clay, had an incredible amount of space with more than one building, no plumbing, electrical, or anything modern to speak of, in total disrepair, and I was SO JEALOUS. Clearly you have to have a lot of time and money in order to take on a project like that, but how magnificent would it be to restore a piece of the distant past like that and make it your own? Is there anyone else that thinks that would just be fantastic?
