Earlier this year I created a decorating story for House & Home all about special decorating details and trim. When it comes to decorating a home, it’s often the special little touches that make all the difference. I used fabric trim, wood trim, fringe and even some decorative tape for a DIY art project. And I was excited to use shades of coral and apricot mixed with taupes and khaki for an unexpected colourful-meets-muted palette. Hope you like ’em!
This was an Ikea dresser tarted up with white-washed trim and rustic hardware. The gorgeous art, lamp and flowers don’t hurt either!
In this living room I had a whole collection of cushions sewn with a variety of trims in various patterns and designs. Plus I added chocolate brown trim to the slipcover of this sofa. The artwork was decorated with a graphic trim border made from decorative masking tape from an artist shop.
And finally a little corner with a comfy chair complete with bullion fringe. It’s sort of an old school decorator’s look, usually used in posh living rooms, but I like how it mixes with this cotton slipcover and earthy rug. Just makes me want to curl up with a good book. So if you’re looking to take your space to the next level, think about adding trim – and check out my portfolio for some more ideas!
