Details are the Design!

October 11, 2017 Details are the design in interior design

“The details are not the details. They make the design.”

said Charles Eames.


The best working relationships start with an emotional connection. First and for most our clients need to know that we completely hear them, that they can trust us, and we are committed to delivering the best Interior Decorating and Design outcome that will surpass their expectations.

One of the ways Kathleen Steele Design achieves this is through exploring all the design details that are available throughout the day, week, and year. We are always taking photos that simple inspire our creativity. (Check out our Instagram.) Whether attending a new supplier event, an art exhibit, or large trade shows, these design details are constantly being cataloged, just waiting for the right time and right client.


Here’s How We Create the Design:


Statement Lighting.lamps for better interior design and lighting

Here we have two incredible designed lux table lamps. The black glass lamp (to the left), complete with round gray linen shade, has a masculine sophisticated look.  Where the cut acrylic and brass table lamp (to the right), provides a polished traditional look. Both lamps have lux detais, and will create a statement in the room.  The question is which statement? after working with our clients we instinctively know.  Both lamps can be found at Globalviews.

The important part of choosing upholstery furniture yes of course is the style and fabric, but their are other opportunities to create a custom pieces that can add that next layer of detail to the design. We always consider adding details like styled legs and nail heads to name just a few. Other options include adding piping and tufted button detail to the upholstered piece for more custom details.  Upholstery pieces Norwalk Furniture.
