Luxury Interior Design: Building Character

It is generally accepted that character is developed through life experiences and a history of growth. Character is a trait that we recognize and honor in those who display it, realizing that there is not normally a “shortcut” for achieving it.
Often, the same is true with the charm of an older home that has developed its own sense of “character” through the years. But never fear…. you can build character in a new home, as well! As you have often heard me say…. it’s all in the details!
You may choose to add character in a new home by bringing in vintage-feeling elements, such as:

  • BRICK and WOOD FLOORING
