One of the easiest ways to add impact to your home decor is by adding trims.  There are so many options available today and different ways to enhance fabrics.  And because we are still adding accessories and accents to our fall decorating, we are teaming up with Kristen Forgione of The Lifestyle Company for a fall pillow giveaway!  The pillow we are giving away is a great example of decorating with trim.  This orange and oatmeal greek key pillow is an original design using grosgrain ribbon on an oatmeal linen fabric.

We met Kristen through Etsy.  She was in a rush to get a roman shade made for a client and we were able to accommodate her.  She is so talented!  Check out her blog to enter the contest, and also see all of her awe inspiring designs.  She has got it going on:  The Life Styled Company.  Don’t wait!  Giveaway ends on Friday, November 14!

So, getting back to our new obsession with trims.  There are so many new awesome looking products in the market now!  Check out our latest company we came across on instagram, The Fringe Company.  Here’s a peek at some of their latest product offerings:

Aren’t these incredible?  They could take a solid cotton or linen pillow or window treatment from drab to fab in about two seconds.  We can’t wait to feature these in some of our custome treatments in our Etsy Shop.  The design possibilities are endless.  For more inspiration, check out their website at The Fringe Market.

Now, here a few of the more recent trim and banding we have done:

Fall update: Navy geometric banding on orange suede pillow

This navy modified greek key banding makes this orange suede pillow pop.

And we just love this window pane drapery panel we did for an Etsy client.  Burlap banding accents a white washed twill fabric, making for a distinct window treatment.

There are so many ways to use tape, banding and trims to enhance pillows and window treatments.  The possibilities are endless.  It is only limited by your imagination and creativity.

Have a great week and don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
