The Good House: Design Is in the Details

Architectural detail gives a house interest, texture, depth, a story and so much more. And while detail can liven up and enrich our experience of a home, it often isn’t thought about until the end. So what happens is that a crown molding gets added as a surface treatment that, while maybe nice, doesn’t seem to have a relationship to the overall architecture. Or a colonial-style balustrade gets installed alongside an Arts and Crafts trim. 


The trick, then, is to think about detail early in the design. And while this doesn’t mean that you’ll want to obsess unnecessarily about each and every detail early on, you’ll want to have an understanding of how each detail will enhance and reinforce the architecture.

The two houses here, both very different stylistically, offer some insights into how the careful consideration of details can enrich a home’s story.
