The trademark of ARTISAN style interiors is a relaxed, comfortable look that has the ambience of a historic place in time. This welcoming style can be created through the use of color, texture, and material. Artisan design blends simple styling and quality craftsmanship to create a setting that is both of the moment and timeless. Artisan elements are a mix of various influences, such as antiques, and earthy materials, like tumbled marble, tile and limestone. Colors are commonly rich, warm and deep in tone. Beautiful details are incorporated into construction such as clean lines, plastered walls, and exposed beams.
Shapes are detailed and unique to provide a hand crafted look. The hardware is often bold and oversized which adds to the rustic appeal.
Distressed and matte finishes are most common in this design style. Warm earthy tones such as copper and wrought iron give an historic essence.
