Little details in design

Lately I've been thinking a lot about the impact of little details in a room, particularly with doors and trim. It's a case where the more I look, the more I are a few of my favorites:

Notice how that little curved piece of trim over the tub makes it seem like its own tiny room...

A square door would have been dramatic with the contrasting trim, but it's even more stellar with the curve in the corners!

(Bottom right) How amazing is this hot-pink trim?!?! Brings the old-school windows into a new century of pretty :)

Without the trim, the gallery art may have 'floated' in an undefined way. With trim, it looks very intentional and tailored.

For a more subtle take on trim details, here we have the inside of a door painted a high-gloss version of the wall color.

Love the house number painted on the door itself.

What an easy way to personalize the dining room, love that monogram!

Even renters can get away with a bit of personalization with colorful door edges...easy enough to paint back when your lease is up!

I love how the wallpaper in the hall adds to the living room's design

This little detail over the door makes the rest of the room feel put-together

Love the piping on the couch which ties in to other parts of this studio.

Last but not least, here's a little detail shout-out to my boyfriend...he designed the High West whiskey bottle label in the lower left :)

What creative touches have you noticed lately?
