Hi friends! I hope your 2016 is off to a great start. I have been obsessively making plans for our new home. I seriously need to slow down and take it one project at a time. It is just all too exciting!! Today I want to share some inspiration photos on some easy ways you can add architectural detail to your home. We are blessed to live in an older home with amazing molding, arches and built-ins. We even have what I call “diamond door nobs.” I wrote all about my love of these vintage door nobs here.
Even though we are blessed with these character-enhancing features, I am still feeling the need to add more. I would love to add a bit more detail to our doors, walls and ceilings as in the images below.
With a relatively simple DIY, you can add decorative paneling or molding to any door. If you have builder grade doors that are as they say “plain”, this is such an easy way to add interest.

Driven By Decor
Since we already have some decorative trim, how fun would it be to accent it with gold to really make it pop like the trim below?
Let’s not forget about the ceiling. How amazingly grand are the two ceilings featured below. That may be too much of a project for us for now, but wow, what a statement it makes!

An easier DIY version with a similar impact is adding a ceiling medallion. These can even be purchased at the big box stores these days. I am really considering doing this to give a “wow” factor to our dining room chandelier and ceiling.

What do you think? Could your home benefit from one of these DIY’s? It’s all in the details right? It has never been easier to fake architectural details!
