First, if you haven't already, you can go to the following link and download photos of the interior:
That link will not stay up forever, so get the photos now if you want them.
I loved the detail in the Brigham City Temple. The style is meant to tie back to the pioneer temples (Salt Lake, Logan, Manti and St George temples in Utah). It does this through a number of features. On the exterior, the two main towers with spires and four corner towers echo the pioneer temples. On the interior, the neoclassical style feels similar to the ornate grandeur of the pioneer temples, particularly Salt Lake and Manti.
One detail I particularly liked was the use of a cast bronze font instead of the white fiberglass fonts that have been used in recent years. I like that it makes it look more like the fonts used from pioneer times through about the 1950s. I also like it because as much as I like white oxen, you need to occasionally do something different. It feels fresh and I like that.

The Celestial Room has stunning detail. You can look at the photos. If I remember correctly there are gold peach branches on the ceiling of the room. I also noticed that the cream on white "wallpaper" appeared to be hand painted stenciling and not wallpaper. The sculpted peach blossoms in the carpet were also beautifully done.

There are many other aspects of this temple that I loved. I liked the unifying peach blossom motif. The intricate stone inlays were beautifully crafted. Many colors were incorporated into the temple making it more interesting than the white and off white color schemes found in most temples, while still being light and inspiring. The stained glass is really beautiful. Also, the railings and woodwork are very nicely done and detailed.
I could go on, and perhaps I will later add some to this post. For now, I'd like to hear what your thoughts are on this spectacularly done temple. So please comment.
One final note, the detail in this temple makes me optimistic that someday they will restore the Logan Temple with this level of detail. Clearly we can still build temples as ornate as the pioneers.
