It’s Time for a Trim!

We’ve always held firm to the belief that beauty lies in the details of design. It’s those little unexpected touches of luxury and whimsy that take a simply pretty room and make it ridiculously chic!

Trim is one of those little luxuries that adds an instant “wow” factor and forces you to do a double take at whatever it’s applied to. Pillows, sofas, drapes, stairways, lamp shades – all perfect canvases for some fabulous fringe. Here’s some of our fav ways to get creative with trim…grab a spool and get inspired!
