  1. Details make a big difference in the final appearance. For instance, look closely at the 2nd photo.
    – cove ceiling between round timbers and where ceiling meets walls
    – thick interior walls with rounded edges curve inwards slightly with a large wooden beam on top
    – curved openings next to windows versus square corners
    – recessed lintels above windows (note how plaster curves onto lintels)
    – thick wooden sills with curved ends
    – diagonal floor tile
    – no factory made trim
