The hand-crafted artisan details we see in bespoke fashion also have a place in the home.
Everything from hand-carved molding to scenic murals enliven interiors by incorporating the human element and imparting personality, style, and visual interest. Here are a few ways to incorporate these one-of-a-kind, bespoke elements into a space.
Consider the walls. Carved moldings can create the illusion of higher ceilings. Wood paneling adds architecture to a room as well as warmth and texture. Rooms clad in woodwork of light oak or darker stained woods are in demand for libraries, dining rooms, and offices.
Hand-painted wallpapers have returned in a big way. Scenic murals and trompe l’oeil can be customized to incorporate personal moments, from a country property to a favorite garden. They are a beautiful and imaginative way to bring the outdoors in.
Decorative and faux painting can make otherwise staid walls stand out. Looking to add a dose of whimsy with a favorite lattice motif or create textured Venetian plaster? There are extremely talented painters to make a vision a reality. Hand-painted patterns and individualized details add instant personality and pique interest.
Whether it is the return of layered, British-influenced interiors, or the love of a cozy wood library, one thing is for sure: decorative details provide the finishing touch.
