Hot architectural details

A beautiful addition to any home is the application of millwork  trim and moulding panels on walls, ceilings and framing built-ins and kitchens.

Our friend Christine Dovey of Bijou and Boheme is masterful at designing spaces with this premier touch. I sure could use her carpenter for a day, week or year! The next three images are her designs and is pretty much becoming her signature look.

I 've often dreamt of hand painting this look on a wall, but I  came across a great wallpaper alternative to this look from (the always fantastic) Anthropologie:



There's no substitution for a high end look with real millwork, but this is an idea you might ponder.
Even small touches like this trim on closet doors makes a huge impact like in this bedroom makeover by our dear friend Pam, from Simple Details.

Have a great weekend, and stay warm!
