This week's Pinning Inspiration looks at just that!
I love the coils of wire used in the 'window garden' picture, for example. They slightly imitate the curved leaves of the plants and add extra interest to an otherwise plain piece of wire. This is only a small added detail, but is very effective!
When it comes to bolder details, the mass of golden feathers in the Christian Dior couture piece make a big statement, whilst retaining the aspect of class expected from designer couture.
For me, adding detail is about improving aesthetic, without detracting from the original creative vision. What is it for you?
(Next week, I'll turn the idea of details on its head!)
