Fun Trims and Tassles!

After a long week recovering from Hurricane Sandy, we finally have power and internet!  We hope that all of our readers who have been affected by the storm recover quickly.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing with you some fun fabrics and trims currently available.  Keep them in your folders, pin them to your Pinterest pages and let us know which ones you like!  This is the time of year that many of you focus on decorating projects — before you welcome holiday house guests to your home.  So, it’s a good time to take note of things that catch your eye! Here are some fun trims:

The Tulip Braid Fringe from Scalamandre is a favorite and comes in many color ways.  It’s expensive and probably unaffordable to most, but sure is pretty to look at!

These colorful pops of color from the Lilly Pulitzer collection for Lee Jofa could be really fun in a pool cabana, child’s room or colorful summer house!  Think Palm Beach!  They are called the “Swingers Tassel Fringe” and are pictured in Seafoam at top and Hibiscus at bottom.
Add a little Asian influence to your window treatments with these Tang Tassels from Kravet Couture’s Barbara Barry collection.  Our friend Beth over at Chinoiserie Chic may like this one!
This fabulous green Elephant border trim in khaki is made in India for Kravet Couture and features the beloved elephant.  If you love elephants or are doing an exotic room, think about using this on pillows or upholstery!
The elegant Balloon Tassle Fringe by Scalamandre comes in  no less than twelve color ways and definitely adds color and robust texture to whatever it is added to!


We love the Beauvais trim from Scalamandre.  It comes in many, many hues and is a fun pattern!


Who doesn’t like a little Greek Key?  This one by Scalamandre is 2″ wide and comes in lots of bright colors, black, grey and even beige.

Samuel and Sons also has a fantastic Greek Key pattern — their Aristotle Greek Key.  It comes in 1-3/8″, 5/8″ and 2-3/4″ sizes and is available in seventeen color ways.  They also have a large Greek Key trim that is woven in France and comes in black and ivory.  Clarence House has a nice one as well!  It’s amazing what a little trim can do!

 These are just a few fun trims!  Stay tuned for more!
