There are certain features of a room that deserve to be played up, they are often sources of pride . . . " great architecture" is at the top of that list for most spaces.
These elements can be inherited or added to a plain space. Items such as fireplaces, columns, windows and beautiful moldings are all great "Architectural Elements" and in most cases will automatically become the rooms focal.
Often thought of as the "bones of a home"and same as with a beautiful woman . . . if the bones are good, they will always be beautiful!
