    When we talk about attention to detail, in any type of industry, what we usually mean is the art of paying particular attention to the smaller details of a project. By not cutting any corners and taking the care to make sure an entire project is carried out successfully, with the dedication to maximise the potential of even the smallest features, a project will have a more professional and wonderful finish. When it comes to interior design, smaller features might not make the most impact but when all of those smaller features work together and immense care is taken at every level, that’s the perfect recipe for designing a home that is flawless and perfectly finished.

  • Make Your Entrance Stand Out

    The first thing that any guest in your home or building will see is the front door. While we’re all notorious for claiming we’d never judge a book by its cover, it’s a fact of human psychology that people do rely on their first impressions to make judgements. It’s a survival mechanism that has evolved with us over the years, allowing our cave-dwelling ancestors to quickly assess the danger of any given situation. Continue reading

  • How to Make Your Home Safe

    Home is a place where we are supposed to be utterly comfortable and at peace. It’s the place we go to relax after working all day; it’s the place we keep our most important possessions, the place we focus on our health and our relationships, and the place where we turn off the world for a while and just enjoy the space we’ve carved out for ourselves. One thing it is never supposed to be is threatening - so it is no surprise that we often go to great lengths to ensure that our homes are safe.

    In fact, protecting our homes from threats is a primitive instinct that goes back to our ancient ancestors. While ice-age humans were largely nomadic, that didn’t stop them from staking out territory and guarding it fiercely. In the same ways today, we guard our homes like dragons guarding piles of pilfered gold, taking advantage of the best security hardware and latest technology available. Continue reading

  • Decorating with Black

    In the world of fashion, black has long retained its never-out-of-style reputation. It can be sleek, sexy, and edgy, or classic, demure, and powerful. It creates the perfect palette for any style, any look, on any person. In interior decorating, many homeowners are intimidated by how dark black seems, but it can be used in surprisingly stylish ways. The “little black dress” for your home can be as subtle or as dramatic as you wish.

    For many people, black home décor instantly calls up one of two classic looks: Gothic drama, or Parisian elegance. If neither of those are your style, fear not; black can also lend itself well as an accent colour for a cheerful modern home. It can be used to offset the dusty, earthy tones of a southern style. Black even has its place in thematic décor, such as in rooms with a nautical theme. Continue reading
