It's in the Details

Today I am featuring a guest post from Susi over at Design Shuffle. I asked about her five favorite design details . . .  because it's all in the details, right!




Hi, everyone, I'm Susi and I write as a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, a fabulous social media site that promotes interior designers and their work from around the world. My writing focuses on things I'm passionate about: interior design, decorating ideas, home furnishings, gardening, travel and art. I get to look at gorgeous things all day and write about them. I'm a very lucky girl!


I am delighted (and challenged) to be guest blogging for Spicer and Bank this week. Narrowing my favorite decor details down to five was nearly impossible. Well, here are mine at least my five favorite for today. Tomorrow they might change. ;)


Thanks for letting me and Design Shuffle visit. Enjoy!

A lovely collection of similar tone photos of architectural and design details makes an inspiring collage of Paris. Photographs, whether of architecture or portraits, professional or personal are one of my favorite interior design details.

In decorating, the details can add that special something to a piece of furniture or a room. Nailhead trim is a classic decor detail. Other classics dÈcor details that are currently popular, and also some of my faves, are Greek key pattern and chevrons. My china is from the 60s and has a silver Greek key pattern - it all comes back around, doesn't it?

Another personal favorite decor detail for me is books. Design books, current summer reads, vintage books with decorative covers, treasured first editions all fill shelves and bookcases. Books are decorative, informative and entertaining.

Dressmaker details in furnishings and accessories are another one of my favorite interior design ideas. Pinking, pin tucks, ruffles, box pleats, even menswear pinstripes can all give a tailored look to home decor. I love textiles and trims. An interesting pillow, throw, piping on a chair, trim on a curtain or coverlet can turn ordinary into something more.

And my favorite decor detail is the unexpected or whimsical touch. Love terrariums for bringing nature into a room. But the dinosaurs are unexpected and make me laugh, and want to know the homeowner.
