Beam Me Up, Scotty!
One of my favorite architectural interior design features is the beam. I love that beams can warm up a traditional room, or equally, make a room feel starkly modern. After all, a post-and-beam house is a descriptive synonym for mid-century modern home.
I also love that, while beams are a needed structural construction feature, they can also be added as a completely faux decorative feature. These pictures are all from from my portfolio. Can you tell which beams are structural and which are purely decorative? My lips are sealed!
