Behind the Big Green Door: Style Crush: The Dime Building - Detroit, MI

Style Crush: The Dime Building - Detroit, MI

7:11:00 PM

A couple of weeks ago, I visited Detroit. We stayed in the downtown area and was in town to celebrate my cousin's birthday.

I'm a huge breakfast person, so when the group talked about walking around to find a good breakfast spot, I was immediately down. I can eat breakfast anytime of the day, literally ANYTIME. We stumbled upon The Dime Building that has a little brunch spot inside.


After doing a little bit of research, I learned that The Dime Building is one of Detroit's oldest skyscrapers. It got its name from a interesting marketing tactic, and being a marketer I found this story pretty interesting. The bank did not have a lot of capital so it came up with the plan of allowing anyone with a dime to open up an account. This idea turned out to be a profitable one, and lured in many customers. The bank went on to be very successful.

....and the rest is history....

But let's talk about this beautiful decor. I was so in love with this lamp. I love an interesting lamp. This lamp base is calling my name!


One thing I really loved about this space was the mix of colors and textures. This space features a cognac leather couch, eggplant microfiber benches and green linen armchairs.





I have lately found myself drawn to rich colors, and I love this mix. This gave me some ideas for my bedroom makeover.

 Another thing I loved about this space was how they took a big open area and sectioned it off into different spaces. Most newly built houses are open floor plans. I have one myself and my set up of furniture has always helped to break up the space.


They used a large long table to break up the sitting area and added more rich colors through the use of these purples chairs.

Lastly, one of my golden rules is always to add something 'alive' to a space. This space had big beautiful trees and plants throughout the space. Adding this simple element really made the place feel alive. This reaffirms my belief of adding greenery to spaces.



Always remember, inspiration can be found anywhere. I was not only inspired by the decor but also with the history of this building.  The power of people putting their dimes together built a successful bank. There are a couple lessons I can draw from this:

1. A little goes a long way
2. Small steps accomplishes Large goals
