Architectural details will make your home stand out and they will never go out of style. They offer timeless appeal and are a perfect backdrop to all decor styles, particularly contemporary.
Contemporary furnishings are often marketed in spaces with architectural details. The same is true for photographing today’s fashions. Everything looks great with a beautiful backdrop of architectural details.
Columns and Pilasters
Column is a particular kind of pillar with an identifiable shaft, base, and capital. Column Shafts are available in wood, resin, stone, fluted, smooth, tapered, rope, indoor and exterior options.

Crown Moulding – Crown Moulding -Crown molding gives any room more character and provides a decorative transition point between the walls and the ceiling. Crown molding draws the eye upwards, creates length, and unifies a room’s space. When choosing materials, size and design, make sure you take into consideration your room’s dimensions and overall style, as well as the overall style of your home. You don’t want to use an oversized molding, as that will overwhelm a smaller room or one with lower ceilings. Nor do you want to use something too small in a larger room with higher ceilings.The most common materials for crown molding are wood, medium-density fiberboard (aka MDF), polyurethane and plaster. And then there are many different styles of molding which to choose. The style of your home will help you determine which one is the best option for you.
