On the Charmed-mag.com Blog page today
Today on the interiors page of Charmed-Mag we go to San Francisco to see the work of interior designer Kevin Sawyers.
My fascination with old decorating books on today’s blog.
We are so excited to present the new web home for Charmed Magazine. We are switching up our format so that we can bring you new content more frequently. Our blog will now be part of our website. We will keep you informed of trends, inspirations, and the random things we happen to be obsessed with at the moment. Remember, new articles, as well as new blog posts will be added to the site every week. You no longer have to wait months to see what we have been working on. This also means we will need more submissions, so please, keep in touch and share your interiors! We love hearing from you. firstname.lastname@example.org
E is for Escutcheon. In furniture terms it is the metal plate over a key hole or the backplate of a door knob. It is one of those details that adds another level of interest to a piece of furniture.
F is for Finial. A finial can be any ornament that caps the ending of a structural element. Our favorite finials are those used at the end of a drapery rod. Draperies are such an important part of your interior and the finial is just one of those details can further carry your design statement, even if that means it is a simple end cap.
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Mine was a busy one with work and travel. Although it’s hard to live out of a hotel for a week, at least it’s in Florida where I will have a nice break from the freezing cold weather we’ve been experiencing lately.
As I’m here installing a project I thought I would share some of the images that have brought inspiration lately for many vastly different interior projects simultaneously underway. Perhaps you’ll find some inspiration as well.
C is for Capital. The capital is the head of a column. C could also be for Corinthian, the particular style of the capital shown. You do not see too many homes these days being built with a lot of columns, but these same details are used on furniture as well.
D is for Dovetail. Dovetail is the interlocking of wedge shaped ends to form a joint. This construction method in furniture is a sure fire way of knowing it was made by someone or a company that believes in lasting quality. For example my cute modern dresser that was very well priced DOES NOT have dovetail joints and its veneer is already peeling off after just a few years.
