Fresh Fabrics Friday: Robert Allen's Bandings Collection

Today I share a little bit of a different angle on "FFF," trims. This new collection from Robert Allen is just delightful, made up of bands, tapes and gimps in a variety of materials, widths and colors. The trims in this collection are simple and elegant, working with many decor styles. Using trim is the kind of detail that can take a room from nice to fabulous, giving the pieces where trim is used a custom, one of a kind look.



1. Caligraphy, 2. Velour Gimp, 3. Diamond Band, 4. Chainlink, 5. Linen Dart, 6. Diamond Chain,
7. Pleated Band

 Bands and tapes can be used to give character to a Roman shade...

To edge a long window panel...

To add interest to a simple knife edge pillow...

To spice up a simple lampshade....

Special trims get me almost as excited as gorgeous fabrics, there are so many creative ways to utilize them.  What projects have you done lately where a gorgeous trim played a star role?

Thanks for bearing with me over the past week with my computer issues, I think it's safe to say that we have conquered these problems and are moving on!  Thanks for your visits, comments and support, you all make my day!

Have a wonderful Fall week-end, enjoy!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design
If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Design Concept Board or a complete Room Rx.

Aw, thanks for including my lamp trim update, Cathy! I do love a good trim detail. It's such a special thoughtful addition to a room that makes a real difference.

I'm so glad you changed it up a bit and included trims in FFF. I've been thinking about trims more as I don't have much experience at all with them, and was thinking the other day about good sources for trims (have any more?). I haven't shown them yet on the blog, but I added a thin navy cording to white lamp shades in my living room. It was a quick/cheap update that packs a punch.
Enjoy your weekend Cathy!

Glad your computer issues have been resolved. I know how frustrating they can be - a daily issue for me which I hope to take care of shortly. Trim is so versatile as you pointed out. Love the selection here. Just last week I added trim to my daughter's floral chandelier - which I have been working on since the summer. Will share it soon.
