You have the perfect color palette and have the perfect accessories cycling through as needed. Furniture layout is ideal. Your home looks stunning and is functional. But something is missing.
Or you're just bored and are looking for another home design project to help fill up a weekend or two.
Why not add some architectural interest?
But wait, you're not an architect and you don't want to do any major construction projects (they are just sooo messy and disrupting). Nope, not what I meant.
There are actually some quite simple ways you can add architectural interest to any space. Try updating the baseboard in your home with a new height and shape and/or switch out the framing around doors and windows to help complete this look update.

Take a look at installing a coffered ceiling, true of faux, or adding a wainscoting to the walls.

|You could also add wainscoting and wood paneling such as in this picture.|
|Here is another option for some wainscoting and baseboards. |
Note the inset where the plant is; these can add depth to any space.
You could also take molding pieces and add texture to walls like in the picture below, such a hundred steps up from the standard wall paneling of the 70's.
|Ever thought about taking molding and creating a wall like this?|
|Mirrors are great at adding visual space to any area.|
|Don't forget the magic of wood beams!|
What ideas do you have? Any good pictures on how you dressed up a space with some trims, frames, etc?
