What is this Beautiful Room II?

Work done by Woodmaster Woodworks

For those following Woodmaster Woodworks previous blog post, you are aware that I am following up a small series on decoding interior trim architectural terms that break down a beautiful room. On this post, I have taken another beautiful room with different options than the original post to illustrate more alternatives to incorporate into your home.

French Doors

French doors typically refer to a pair of doors but can be  single. They are a light weight construction door that is primarily composed of glass. The pair in this beautiful room is called a 15 light, referring to the number of panes or glass boxes in the door. These French doors are also adorned with casing trim as previously described on the original post. Coming off the doors, are another style of beautiful wall panel design that again was described in more detail in the previous post.

Arch


An arch is a structure that forms an entrance opening in a curved, pointed, or square shaped design. Not only does it provide structure for support above it, arches offer a timeless classic beauty. Like all other divisions of interior trim, arches offer many different sizes, styles, and adornments in addition to the shape options. The beautiful room picture above shows a traditional style small curved arch with casing. Other examples of arches and additional trim options are pictured below.

The first and second arches are large arches adorned in different trim details but both beautiful. The last arch has recessed panels inlaid into the arch for even more added beauty.

Coffered Ceiling

The last and most stunning part of this beautiful room (in my opinion) is the coffered ceiling. A coffered ceiling is a ceiling that has a recessed panel appearance in multiple box shapes. They are typically square, rectangle, or octagon. They differ greatly in appearance from a tray ceiling that was briefly touched upon in the last blog, which is an inverted appearing ceiling with a solid, universal design rather than the coffered multiple box design.

All of the pictures above are custom ceilings done by Woodmaster Woodworks showing various options for coffered and tray ceilings. The first 3 pictures are coffered ceilings and the last two are tray style ceilings. The first picture illustrates a multiple shape and size coffered design with two tone paint to add depth to your ceiling. The second coffered ceiling shows elaborate trim detail encompassed into a single paint color ceiling. The last coffered ceiling pictured is a flat style design in two tone paint to highlight the ceiling design. Both Tray style ceilings shown are the more layered style. The first picture having a decorative trim inlaid within the inner border of the recess and the second has multiple layers offset with two tone paint colors to add more depth and a paint wall match. Which ever style of custom ceiling and options you prefer to incorporate into your beautiful room, the end result is absolutely gorgeous!

I hope both Beautiful Room blogs have helped to clarify some terminology but most importantly give you inspiration for your home. Regardless of which options appeal to you from both blogs, all are beyond stunning and truly sets any room of your home apart from any other.

Now and Then: Decade Do-Overs (The '70s)


The word "timeless" typically refers to objects that have a lasting presence and/or aesthetic effect.  However, this term does not describe the various home decor styles that soaked in the limelight and then quickly vanished during the '70s, '80s, '90s, and '00s.  In spite of these hasty home happenings, appearances of such decade specific patterns, styles, and designs are making their way back into the abodes of homeowners everywhere.  But this time...they may be here to stay.

1970s


Large patterns and brightly
colored cabinets make this a
 classic '70s kitchen
The '70s can be identified as an era full of peace, love, and...neon carpets?!
 Although the neon carpet probably isn't a modern update for hip homeowners, unlike previous decades, the '70s classic kitchen had an abundance of space and storage to contain the technologies and appliances that were becoming standard amenities. Additionally, built-in desks, beds, and other furniture were introduced during this distinctive decade.


Notice the extensive built-in bookshelf along the back wall.

Today

Large kitchens, expansive storage units and built-ins are not unfamiliar territory in the modern household (thanks to the '70s).  Although these added spaces are becoming standard among homeowners, the variety and designs are endless. 





Although spacious kitchens began in the '70s, bright white and tons of storage make this modern day kitchen a timeless piece. 


Additionally, paneling used on the walls of family rooms and recreational rooms were a result of the '70s.  While most homes are panel-free (from the traditional brown vertical panels), there are still traces of paneling...but with a modern flare.  

Custom paneling:  Beadboard recessed panels with applied moulding and crown detail


Although we may not return to neon carpets and retro color palettes, we must be thankful for what the '70s have attributed to modern day homes.  Where would we be without our spacious kitchens, beautiful built-ins, and The Bee Gees?
