Monday Musings: Tantalizing Trim

Happy Monday morning lovelies. We don't know about you all, but we could have used an extra day on this weekend. They never seem to be quite long enough. Anyhow...we are ADORING adornment. Redundant you might say? Possibly. But tis true. We are loving all kinds of trim on furniture, accessories, walls, fabric, Christmas trees. Well I guess not Christmas trees...YET. Everything in between though. We have narrowed the world wide trim (WWT) down to just a few favorites: Nailhead, greek key, ribbon AND piping. 

Trim adds major style to any accessory or space. For instance, I have an overstuffed chair that I have had FOREVER. It is so comfy and super cute, it just was boring me. So! How might we change this? You guessed it. I got a million upholstery nails and went to town. This thing went from blah to ah-mazing! It looks super custom and gave a new and improved look on a tired piece. This can be done with any item in your house. Let's trim it up. 

To start this off right we are beginning with nailhead. The nailhead trend has been around for a bit but we still cannot get enough. For example, this fabric table adorned with nailhead? Loves. We love the feminine print of the fabric paired with the hard edgy nailhead. Such an amazing opposition. Styled perfectly as well. 
Hopefully you all can see the detail in this space. I spy nailhead trim around the cabinetry. This is a new one for us. We haven't seen this executed before and we desperately hope we get to see this again. This is absolutely unique and gorg. Again, such a classic and clean space coupled with the edge. Juxtaposition is our fave. 
Beautifully romantic space. We love the usage of mixed metals and creamy organic fabrics. Not to mention the gorgy nailhead trim on the couch. 
On to the patterned trim...greek key to be exact. These window treatments look super luxe in this glam space. The greek key adds interest to the solid cream draperies. We think it is the perfect amount of umph to jazz up the windows. 
Greek key trimmed headboard?!?! Yes folks. It exists. Who else is obsessed with the usage of pattern in this room? Most of us would be scared to take such a risk, but this totally wins with a glamorous eclectic flair. Winning. 
Oh Lonny, how we love thee. We talked awhile back about table skirts and this one fits the bill. Gorgeous linen trimmed with a gorg navy ribbon and gold embellishments. We think this would be a solid DIY for you crafters out there. We also love the mixture of blues in this space. Monochromatic love. 
Holy Elle Woods. Ok. So we know this would not be a typical shared space with a man, BUT we do love the piping on the sofa. Talk about tailored. Piping on furniture gives such a chic and custom look on any piece. Especially when they are conflicting colors. 
Again, fabulously piped love seat. We love green. We love sitting. We love piping. What isn't there to love about this space? Nothing! That is what. 
Glam. O. Rous. Now this is a super traditional space, however, we have to give props where props are due. The incorporation of the piping and nailhead trim on those slipper chairs is out of control. Also, they are leopard. Leopard, green, magenta, nailhead trim, piping, and knotty wood legs, oh my. Stealing. Those. 
We have a big announcement to share with you all this week! We cannot wait to spill. Also, do not forget to enter in the fab Pretty Smitten giveaway. You will NOT be sorry.
