The lovely Naomi is back with some amazing examples of how tape trim can be used. — Meg
While everyone else and their mother is posting about holiday decor right now, my mind has already jumped ahead to January. You see in January I finally get to move into my cottage I’ve been renovating and I will get to work on the fun stuff: Decorating. With a budget that has been fully blown on things like hardwood floors, central air, plumbing and fancy new wiring, I will be working with very little to fill in the finishing touches. I plan to rely heavily on my favorite decorating “trick,” tape trim, to add tailored sophistication to my home. (Photo above via Lee W. Robinson)
Tape trim, or grosgrain ribbon, can be applied to just about any surface to add definition. It can be solid and simple, shaped into a Chinois Key or another type of geometric pattern, or be patterned itself (greek key, etc.). I LOVE to use it on roman shades and pillows for clients. For my own home, I plan to DIY myself some curtains and lampshades. After doing some research for this round up, I may need to add some trim to my skirted sofa!
