4 Home Décor Items that are Better with Trim

Pillow and Drapery Trim

A lot of clients forego adding details or trim to furniture and accessories to keep decorating costs down and allocate those funds to other, seemingly important, items in their room. When you need 32 yards of a $150/yard trim just to add a little pizazz to your drapery, it definitely begs the question, is it worth it? But if I told you that you could get the same pizazz with a $2/yard trim and a glue gun, the answer to that same question would be a resounding, yes!
What you’ll need.

Skirted Table Solutions: Add Personality to a Table

Red Skirted Table

It all started when I began the hunt to find a meeting table for my new office. The corner where the table would be located is tight, but I wanted to maximize surface areas as much as I could; this resulted with me coming up with the not so popular diameter of 42 inches. I looked high and low for something I loved, would fit the style of my office, was within my budget, and right around my ’perfect’ size. After about a month of searching, a light bulb went off in my head: I realized that a skirted table was the answer to all of my woes.

Stylish Kitchen Accessories

West Elm Canisters and Dishes

Designing custom kitchens are some of my favorite projects. There’s something about the durability, permanence, and functionality of a kitchen that I love. But, I don’t think that a great kitchen should stop with beautiful cabinets and a stylish backsplash: beauty in a kitchen should extend to every part. Whatever is sitting on your stove, next to your sink, or anywhere else should compliment the rest of the space instead of taking away from it. In essence, my dream kitchen is one where every part, from the largest refrigerator to the smallest teaspoon, serves a functional purpose, but also exudes stylish living.

Floor to Ceiling Paint Designs

Sometimes it’s the riskiest design decisions that transform a room from good to great. This is exactly how I feel about painted ceilings and floors. Painting your walls is low risk. I do it everyday when working with clients – it’s an easy sell. What isn’t such an easy sell is convincing them to paint their ceiling. People often ask, “…but won’t it feel like a cave?”, “…won’t it make the room feel smaller?” My response to these (questionably) valid concerns is always: painted floors and ceilings are awesome so do it anyway!

5 Ways to Accent Your Lifestyle With Hardware

There’s nothing like a trip to the hardware store to get your creative juices flowing! I first noticed this about a year ago while working on a few window displays for the California Gift show. After coming up with a few concepts, I headed to Home Depot to figure out how to execute them. I then left with materials and ideas far superior than my original plans. Miniature garden fences became rustic window frames, and metal conduit became the perfect legs for my space-aged table. Even better, there are fun and practical ways to use your local hardware store for home decoration and fashion.
