A decorative + functional detail
Design is ultimately all about the details, whether they are functional, aesthetic or a combo, designers are constantly trying to create functional spaces that enhance our client's life and home. (that's my goal!).
Often times I come across a design challenge based on the technicalities of the room or space. For example: heating and venting - this is a biggie.
My goal is to blend the two challenges...In this case a wonderful solution to the venting or heating dilemma is using metal mesh or a beautiful grille. Below are some gorgeous examples. I usually find the solution enhances the design and I use it again in the future, even when I don't have an issue. The look simply becomes a part of the design experience!
One of the best facets of my job? Devising endless design ideas and possibilities! I'm off to Boston for a couple meetings....Happy Thursday! xx
Van Dykes is a great source for mesh..
This screen is used as both a decorative and functional element. It helps contain the glassware but leaves the shelf with an open look.
