Get that Hamptons | coastal feel! Fret work can change the entire feel of your home.

You can change the look and feel of your home by adding details like fret work. Interior fretwork is used to decorate hallways, window bays, doorways and other open spaces within a home. I love that it creates or re-creates a warm and charming entry to hallways and living rooms. Here we have used it in our entry hallway and the hallways towards the boys rooms. It's even featured in our walk-in robe (not pictured)

If you decided to add this to your home tag @hamptonsinhighfields on instagram, I would love to see your finished project.
