Friday Design Inspiration - Texture, Paint and Trim Details

This year our local Kaleidoscope of Homes had some themes that emerged in texture, paint and trim.

A faux crocodile headboard adds just the right impact in this neutral bedroom.
Texture is one of the most important items in design - especially in a more neutral color scheme. The homes in this year's tour of homes were filled with quiet colors and rich textures. 

A burlap head board with nail head detail is juxtaposed with a collection of embellished pillows.
Love this linen covered bar stool....
Rich linen appears again in this curvy chair...
Texture is easily added through accessories  like the faux bamboo box above....
Paint finishes like faux treatments stencils have evolved a lot over the years (thank goodness in some cases...I'm talking about you sponge paint!) and we saw some great options on the tour.

Large scale damask stenciling on sherbet colored walls - yum!
A striped scheme makes a smallish bath appear huge!
A tonal stencil boarder with a little jewel detail.
A tonal harlequin paint treatment with nail head detail.
Another large scale stencil on plaster.
Another large scale damask stencil used on a vanity.
Lastly, we saw a lot of interesting design details, especially nail head trim used in a wide variety of applications.
Nail head detail combined with faux, stenciled wainscot - gorgeous.
Nail head combined with panel treatment and faxu leather paint.
Nail head corners on faux plaster wall treatment.
Nail head vanity accent...
Nail head detail on accessories too...
Hope you were inspired by our outing - have a great weekend!
