Architectural Detail: Trim Work

Living and working in New Orleans I’ve come to appreciate the attention to detail that can be found in some of the homes here. The elaborate architectural detail can be seen in the homes along St. Charles Avenue.

One important aspect of architectural detail is trim work. It’s a great way to add interest to a space. It can completely transform your home and create depth and symmetry to an otherwise lackluster room.
