Vision is the Art of seeing the Invisible”-Jonathon Swift

Liz Grina, Interior Designer- Design West


When it comes to creating a space with depth and character, sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what is making the room feel special. At Design West, we think that the bones of an interior are where the magic happens! Whether it is stained beams intersecting within a ceiling tray, a wall molding detail in a dining room, or a unique built-in unit, beautiful architectural elements are what take a design from average to extraordinary.

A wall or ceiling detail can be the perfect place to display a gorgeous textural wall covering or faux treatment. If a client has a special piece of artwork or photo that they would like to display, why not create a special wall detail to showcase it?

Built-ins can also be the perfect place to combine form and function. It used to be the norm to hide a TV behind a chunky armoire, but creating a custom media unit that can house a TV while simultaneously providing a beautiful architectural element for the room is a great way to add depth and interest!
