It’s All About the Trim- Details, Details, Details

Hi All! I have been spending mucho time on Pinterest lately researching paint colors (see yesterday’s post) and gaining some layout inspiration for a project I am working on which I will share later….aaaaaannnnd while on Pinterest I got sidetracked (shocker!) drooling over ribbon and trim details on all things decor and fashion.  It is such an easy way to update a look and make it totally personal.  I bought these curtains from West Elm (similar here) a few years ago and added pink greek key ribbon to them for my older daughter’s room, and loved the key tape so much I recently added it to pillows for her as well. Coordination and personalization…Done!sara langley designsSara Langley Designs Greek Key Trim









And for the love of navy, I added the navy key tape to my fav curtains du jour for the dining room:


and then on some pillows for the living room (did I mention I love navy?):

and solid navy for a lampshade in my younger’s daughter room (along with a pop o’ polka on the pillow):IMG_5525

and I love my stripes, in navy of course, so naturally I added some to the bamboo shades we hung in our kitchen:

Here are some great trim options from around the web that would also make fab DIY projects:

Some gorgeous trim on monogrammed napkins from Mark and Graham;


Why not add some ribbon to a pinboard just in time for back to school like this one from PBTeen;


Love the infinite possibilities of adding multiple trims to a solid pillow case like this one shown at BHG;


Here is another drape option (though no longer available at Serena & Lily ,p.s. they are having their tent sale through 8/7);


And I would be totally remiss if I didn’t add some fashion pics that showcase all things ribbon (and bows!):

My daughter chose these cute sneakers with ribbon laces for back to school (guess some things are really genetic);


Although this tank sold out, it would be very easy to add your choice of ribbon to a simple top for some DIY fashion;


and there are many examples such as this one of gorgeous necklaces with ribbon tie closures;


and lastly, while technically not trim, here is some arm candy with a purpose, which I ordered stamped with Perspective as “my word” because I truly believe it is how you choose to look at things that defines your journey;


Have a wonderful day All!
