The devil is in the details

Many would argue that the attention to details is what takes the project from good to great.

In the living room above designed by the Dillard Design Group,  the black inner frame you see in the picture on the far wall picks up the beautiful black bench below it –  definitely a thought out custom detail.  The grey-green banding on the cream silk cushions picks up the colour of the sofa.  This pulls it  together beautifully.
The details on this gorgeous velvet sofa below are definitely over the top!  Banding and contrast piping is used as well as a bouillion fringe along the skirt of the sofa.  Tory Burch is not shy when it comes to layering many details both in her home decor and in her fashion line.

We love using details like banding and trim to pull colours together and give it that special ‘done for you’ look.

And you can surely tell that the window treatment below is custom designed.  An ‘off the rack’ or ready made treatment would never have the details or fit that you see here.

Notice the two tone colours on the pillow on the chair below…repeating our accent colours that are also on the lantern, the art and in the stripe of the chair.  The area rug was also custom sized for the room and trimmed in a cotton tape picking up on the grey/blue colour of the room.

Finally Tobi Fairley always does a perfect job at paying attention to the details.  The room below is from the  New York City Holiday House she just completed. Note the repetition of the geometric detail on the wallcovering and the banding on drapery.  She also repeats black on the fireplace mantel, the wallcovering, the sofa,  the art and the beautiful wall sconces.  She definitely knows how to take care of the details!

A decorator should help you think of all the creative details needed to make a project shine.  Everything from the colours, the shapes, the sizes, the scale, the elements of surprise….no detail should be left unaddressed.  If you need someone to help you co-ordinate and implement all the details, give Lumar Interiors a call or [email protected]
