At Milton, we believe that there is nothing better than attention to detail. Thoughtful details are the hallmark of quality construction and exquisite finishing touches often mark the difference between good and the best. Part of the fun in designing your own dream home comes in exploring what speaks to you personally and compiling a wish list and collection of images that inspire you. Architectural details that you admire can be customized to reflect your own tastes and ideal aesthetic.\r\n\r\nWhat does your dream style look like? Hint: finely detailed does not have to mean ornate. Beautiful design is often stunningly simple but with luxe elements and meticulous attention to detail. This bathroom with precise millwork and beautiful limestone floors is a great example:\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nWe also love the inclusion of the side wall mirror in the bathroom to help expand the space.\r\n\r\nGenerous mirrors easily lend a sense of indulgence to a room while at the same time enhancing functionality. Closet doors are a great place to add them!\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nSpeaking of doors, this is a key opportunity to make a striking statement, both inside and out. A beautifully designed front door is like a smile – a welcoming first impression for your house.\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nDoors can be used creatively to create welcoming spaces outside of the home as well. Bold and graphic cedar fence doors really set the mood in this Southampton garden:\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nInside, quality hardware and fixtures contribute greatly to innovative design. You can use them to create contrast and a visual counterpoint, or to continue a theme. We love how the circular hardware complements the graphic appeal of this bathroom:\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nThe right furnishings are important as well. A chorus of similar shapes can create harmony and make a room feel complete. In this bedroom, the square angled side tables combine with the square pattern of the silver leaf framed headboard to provide a sense of tranquility and order.\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nThink of your ultimate goal for a room and select details that will complement that objective. Remember that they can be whatever you want them to be as long as they are well executed. Meticulous attention to detail will make all the difference in your final product – enjoy the process and don’t be afraid to mix it up. We’d love to see what is inspiring you!
