Details make the home – and its owners happy.
Interior architecture concepts start big: Creating a full-floor master suite. The his-and-hers bathrooms. The custom kitchen. Yet the most important measure of design is in the fine detail, which truly make the mark of a remarkable home.
For a worldly English couple in Richmond, that meant an entirely new level of deep detail: the brass knocker on the front door. The mirror-like, shiny lacquer paint that envelops residents and guests in a rich green upon entry. The reclaimed wooden beams in the kitchen ceiling, unique tile work in the foyer, and a custom-stitched runner on the stairs. An abundance of color runs throughout, while embroidered passion flowers on the master bedroom’s curtains link the inside of the estate to its gardens’ flora. The residents had also collected items from their homes around the globe: chicken wire from France, frosted glass panels, custom light fixtures – all of which were incorporated into the space’s fixtures and furnishings. Even the insides of the vanity’s makeup drawers are painted hot pink, adding a touch of joy to the owner’s day each time she opens them.
