Of all the things that can take a room from blasé to beautiful, molding and architectural details are some of our very favorites.

 Those simple little touches can make even the plainest rooms look fabulously chic and perfectly lived in.

 These architectural details may be fabulous, but, well, sometimes they are easier said than done. Finding the right materials, creating the right look… It can seem overwhelming.

 You all know we went to our first Design Bloggers Conference a few months ago, and we met some amazing people and saw some incredible new products. But, of them all, the very tip top of our list was a company called Metrie, North America’s largest wood and MDF molding manufacturer.

 What makes Metrie so special is that, instead of creating a situation where homeowners have to put together tons of different pieces of molding and try to coordinate them, Metrie’s Then and Now Finishing Collections includes perfectly coordinated and proportioned moldings and doors to give a room a totally unique look.

 The products are perfect for designers or individuals. All you have to do is choose from one of the five collections, select the elements you want and add personal touches such as stains, paints or finishes.

 Metrie’s website has a fantastic Room Styler and a Styling Quiz that make it easy to choose the look that’s right for you and then implement it in your home.

 From casings to crown and panel moldings to baseboards to doors, Metrie provides every element to create a work of art from a blank wall.

 This is the first transformation that we fell in love with when we were learning about Metrie. A simple, nondescript room became fabulous with the addition of these amazing details.

 The doors are really one of our favorite elements. They add so much elegance and give the home age and history instantly.

 And the ceiling is interesting and a little bit fun.

 Gray and brass is one of our favorite color combinations, and this room blends it perfectly!

 The French Curves collection is also so fabulous. It is totally astounding how the addition of these elements, in combination, create a look that is completely one-of-a-kind.

Have you ever? Amazing, right? And, if you’re thinking that these rooms look fabulous, but they aren’t in your budget, think again. Every collection can be tailored to any budget. We were floored by how reasonable it can be to create this look. No doubt about it, when I move again, Metrie is the first place I’ll go to add some extra charm.
