The details make the design

Charles Eames, whose mid-century modern furniture pieces are now considered works of art, once said: “The details are not the details. They make the design.” How true this is. A minimalistic style as in this interior decoration, where nothing stands out by its own, but every bit of it (from the two pictures on the mantelpiece and the simplest mirror-frame to the wooden floor and nicely covered books and notebooks on the bedside, maybe in fine leather) works together to showcase a streamline elegance. A classic-line dress, in which the only embellishment are the vertical ruffles and incorporated belt or the different textured short sleeves (they alone a remarkable detail on an evening gown) and two straps on a bareback or a beautiful act of a garment revealing a sophisticated slit… The little touches that create distinction and that indeed make the design.

I hope you had a beautiful weekend and that your week is off to a perfect start!
