Big fan here of the beautiful traditional style architecture and interior design happening in Utah by The Fox Group. Have you stalked this dream team’s Instagram feed lately?
Classic Traditional Design Details to Inspire
Let’s peruse their beautiful portfolio and note a dozen enchanting design elements from their lovely residential builds.
Traditional Design Detail No. 1
For fans of: Georgian style, classical details, and English Colonial architecture, the beautiful home above with its symmetrical design elements and head turning curb appeal is sure to please!
Traditional Design Detail No. 2
Classic Wall Panels.
Geometrical wall panels on stairway in this home by The Fox Group add so much timeless architectural interest and character to the space.
Traditional Design Detail No. 3
Allowing more space and light to enter the top floor, the gabled dormers on this, the architect and designer’s own home, enhance the exterior and contribute a sense of character and history.
Traditional Design Detail No. 4
Oh this foyer. Just kill me now. And I’m hungry this moment and want to eat those stripey ribbons which remind me of fruit leather.
Traditional Design Detail No. 5
What a beautiful detail to honor the past and create functional sculpture outside!
Traditional Design Detail No. 6
Just how traditional are columns? Um. They have been around since around 2600 B.C. in Egypt!
Traditional Design Detail No. 7
Why not let the sunlight stream in your front entry? And aren’t these transoms above extra interesting since they don’t stretch to the bottom of the door? Custom is crazy cool, y’all.
Oh, hark! Here’s why they don’t stretch the full length of the front door!
Traditional Design Detail No. 8
Shaker style cabinetry that will likely never have to be demo’d in years to come and a new owner takes possession.
Traditional Design Detail No. 9
Kitchen range area that feels like a hearth.
Traditional Design Detail No. 10
Fine craftsmanship and artful thoughtfulness on the “fifth wall.”
Traditional Design Detail No. 11
Recessed panels on a fireplace surround.
Traditional Design Detail No. 12
Built-in bench with functional storage.

You’ll Love This Heartwarming Countdown…Oooooh, #4 is everything! Which is your favorite?
What’s on your heart today this day, a week before Christmas, friends?
I have had a somewhat weary day and will be seeing two different doctors this week for ongoing health issues I haven’t shared with you. Thank you for keeping me company on the journey and adding beauty with your positivity in comments. I know I’ll be just fine. My capacity for negativity and distressing news is unusually low right now so I am praying for renewed strength, assurance, and endurance.
Should you find yourself at a similar juncture, I join you – take heart – this too shall pass – the light is coming!

Thank you for your blog and positivity! You have a great eye and you add a little sunshine to my day. I wish you all the best at your appointments. The most important and lucky thing is that you are going to people who can help you feel and get better. Ill be thinking about you and wishing fo rate very best!!
Thanks for the encouragement. I’m often a mess during the winter months when I don’t get as much sunshine and struggle with respiratory stuff. Peace to you right where you are, friend.
I love symmetry, dormers, large foyers and white kitchens. Timeless & classic design. Beautiful!
Me too! These details give me the itch to design and build something new…uh-oh! 🙂
Always such a pleasure to see what lovelies you’ll share each morning! These homes are stunning!
….and what’s on my heart this week before Christmas? Ahhh….the desire to find like minds who share my passion for music, decorating, and…..puppies and dogs. 😉 To like something is one thing: to have passion for it is quite another level of involvement indeed.
Also on my heart this week is sending out comfort to those who’s lives have been wrought with pain…pain of sadness of loss, physical pain, pain in lost relationships and so many other avenues that pain can take. Many prayers for so many souls.
But…to end on a very happy note! We have had THE most gorgeously warm weather in our area (upper 40’s) and though there won’t be snow for Christmas (and what we had earlier is mostly gone) I’m as happy as a spring bird enjoying this lovely warm weather! 🙂
May God bless you with His light of hope!
Your enjoyment and gratitude during the season is refreshing – here’s hoping it can cyber-ly rub off on me. Peace to you, friend.
Oh, dear Lord in Heaven, Michele, that dining room rug in Traditional Design Detail No. 9 is positively gorgeous. I sent a note to Cara at The Fox Group – I would really love to have that rug in my living room. It so reminds me of alot of the primitive heirloom blankets and coverlets and since my primarily colors in my living room are beige with reds and blues, it would be perfect. Do you have any clue how to purchase a rug like that? Thank you.
I so enjoy your blog and some of the homes you feature are to die for. Thank you for sharing these with us and I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I couldn’t stop staring at that rug, and it made me happy that there was so little decor in that room so I could study it! I hope Cara can help with the source! 🙂
I hope so, too, Michele. If I hear from her, I’ll let you know.
Haven’t heard a word back. But I did find a similar rug online – have to figure out where it was now so I can post the link for you. It’s not exactly the same but similar. Kind of disappointed that I haven’t heard back.
Thanks so much. I will keep my eyes open.
Oh, my friend Michele, I join you with winter ailments — in my case, a recently diagnosed cardiac disease. Scary, but I’m learning to live with it. God has been preparing me through all my Bible studies in BSF this fall, and all my readings. Still, the news landed like a bombshell. Let’s continue to remind each other that “this, too, shall pass.” ~ Jo
So sorry to hear this – and yes, ‘this too shall pass’ has always helped me more than I can say. What a blessing that you feel you have been prepared and given capacity to cope. This is so encouraging! xox
Michele, I hope that all of your appointments go well. In the comments you mentioned that you suffer during the winter months, do you have one of those lights that people with SAD use? Maybe that would help a bit.
Your beauty, life and light are a bright spot in the lives of many during sunny days and long, grey winter days. Be well and at peace my friend.
Thanks, Elizabeth. I’m so grateful for the support. xox
Wishing you better days and happy holidays with those around you. You are truly an inspiration and your blog is a delight. Prayers .
I’m hangin’ in there and have hope all will heal very soon. Thank you for reading and for adding beauty here!
Hello, do you have any idea what type of counter top is in the kitchen – it’s beautiful! Thanks in advance!
Hi Cathy – thanks for reading. It looks like it is Arabescato marble! Hope this helps. 🙂
