All of the Trimmings

While many of you are in full-blown holiday decorating mode – and more of the mantle and tree type – I wanted to jump back into the world of interior design, for a moment, to share some trimmings of another kind.

As an interior designer, I do love the little details.  Trimmings come in all different degrees of texture, color, materials and complexity.  They add that certain something special to any room.They can elevate a simple chair, window or pillow, to a level of interest not always reached by being left unadorned. 

As we get closer to the holidays, my posts will be short and sweet – just like me!  We all have things to do, places to be and people to see, so I’ll give you some fun and fast tips for amping up the volume in your décor!

A simple shade simply shows better with a decorative tape applied.  (Now say this really fast!)

This holiday break was cheerfully brought to you by – Wanda!
