Never ever out of style, the use of trims in design ebbs and flows. For my own projects, I’m of the opinion that the use of trimmings adds the finishing touch and detail that elevates a project. Trims make a special statement which captures the eye and draws attention to a lovely fabric or shape. Some refer to trims as embellishment which is a big word that says “anything that adds beauty or elegance”.
My favorite and go-to source is Samuel and Sons which I’m using currently for custom pillow shams in a bedroom.
The specifics for those interested are as follows:
Duralee: Laura Kirar for Highland Court with woven border by Michael Smith – Samuel & Sons
Duralee: Laura Kirar for Highland Court with 1/4″ cord with lip – Samuel and Sons
Previously, I used some unique trims again from Samuel & Sons as I added custom details to another master bedroom. This time the fabrics were from Duralee ~ John Robshaw and again Samuel & Sons.
