Day 11 Design Inspirations – Trim (Passementerie)

Oh, the joys of embellishment.  A designer dream come true.  This expert Seattle interior designer knows that ‘it’s all in the details’. And trims, aka passementerie, are the ticket for that signature appeal and final, finished look.

So what is  passementerie anyway? Passementerie or passementarie is the art of making elaborate trimmings or edgings (in French, passements) of applied braidgold or silver cord, embroidery, colored silk, or beads for clothing or furnishings. There are numerous, excellent vendors that excel in the medium.  I first look at Samuel and Sons and  Houles.
