March Design House....it's all in the details

The March house is almost there!  We have all new furniture and accessories, and the house is ready for spring this Friday, Sat. & Sun. (3/1, 2 & 3).

We've been trying to be more diligent about taking pics through the process of styling the house.
This month, we have all new furniture - kitchen islands, dining tables, refractory cabinets, sideboards & consoles, and upholstery.  We thought we'd take you through a few of the details of the new pieces....it was these details that caught our eye earlier this year and started the wheels spinning.

We're setting up this table as a bar in the sun room.  What caught our eye was the bolt detail on the crosspieces on the legs.  The look is pure reclaimed and industrial.  Do you love it too?

This is a coffee table we're using upstairs.  I love these zinc star accents!  We're pairing this with some of our nautical accents.

The wood grain on stain treatment on this new table caught our eye.

Details like drawer construction are SO important, especially so in furniture.  It's good to check the woods used on the drawer fronts AND the woods used to construct the insides of the drawers too.

Our bar cabinet downstairs has great carving detail.  We're really happy with the quality of furniture we found in January.  This new company is based on the East Coast, which makes the wait times for furniture shipments MUCH better....no more waiting 8 to 14 months for a piece!

Lots of great new upholstery this March.  Check out the embroidery detail on this chair.   The shape of the cushion is lovely too.  Pure spring!

We asked you on our Facebook page this week, and it seems like we have a lot of nail head trim fans out there.

Dark brown piping details are so crisp and clean on the sofa upstairs.  Yes, those really are giant mustache hooks!

The luxurious tufting on our chair upstairs makes me want to curl up and read a book.

We love the modern-looking silver nail head trim on this upholstered headboard

Simple nail head trim works with this feminine and curvy oversize chair beautifully.

Here is an example of Amy's laying, tucking & primping the perfect throw.  Even a detail like how you lay your throw over the arm of a sofa can bring your design up a level and make it look extra rich.

What details do you feel really make a piece of furniture or a room? 

What's left?  Well, we have a few cabinets of smalls to put away....

...and then it's on to the front porch!

Just so you don't think we just take pictures of unfinished things, here are a few rooms from the March Design House....almost there!

Join us this week on the blog as we finish The March Design House.  Better yet, join us this weekend - Friday, Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm for the March Design House.
