Ar­chi­tec­tural de­tail

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES -

Our fea­ture room abounds with ar­chi­tec­tural de­tail. While your home may not have all of th­ese fea­tures, you can add to what you all ready have to cre­ate a lit­tle more drama. The dec­o­ra­tive pil­lars, for ex­am­ple, are lovely and cre­ate vis­ual divi­sion be­tween the two spa­ces. Dec­o­ra­tive pil­lars can be pur­chased at most home sup­ply stores and are made of ma­te­ri­als that can be cut to fit your needs, in most cases. You can also make pil­lars from sono-tubes by paint­ing them in a faux fin­ish, like mar­ble. (This project takes a lit­tle prac­tice.) You’ll no­tice the pil­lar against the wall in our photo is cut in half ver­ti­cally to fit the space. Both of the com­pos­ite pil­lars (from the home sup­ply store) or the sono-tube can be cut to fit a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion. If you don’t have room for a com­plete pil­lar you could still make a grand state­ment by us­ing two halves in­stalled on a fea­ture wall or en­try way.
