Trim 101

To trim or not to trim! That is the question. Don't underestimate the value of adorning your pillows, draperies, bedding, etc. Trimming helps to emphasize, accentuate shapes and adds extra drama. When decorating a room, you do not need to trim everything. Choose a few items for the adorning of trim and coordinate with your fabrics and colors.
Example: Simple drapery panels look elegant and beautiful with a beaded trim down each interior edge. For a subtle effect, choose a trim that matches the fabric and for a dramatic approach, choose a multi-colored trim. This shows two different ways for adding color and drama to the same window treatment.

New trim colors to look for: Bronze, Vivid Blues, Golds, Silvers, Eggplant
