A knowledgeable interior designer once said, “Trimmings rise and fall with the state of the economy.” Having been in the design industry for over 20 years, we have seen this cycle and know it to be true. It was most evident when the economy went into recession after the 2008 financial crisis; trimmings were the first detail to get cut. Continue reading…
Decorative trims and tassels are a popular addition to many of today’s window treatments and accessories. We offer several different types of trims, fringes and tassels that can be incorporated onto many of the pillows, table decor and window treatments we fabricate.
Okay – You want to give your room some character, warmth and depth. Here are some quick inexpensive ways to accomplish your goal.
Layering will add warmth to a room. If a room appears cold and boring adding layers of fabric can turn up the “heat” and give the room some needed textures. For example, add a rug, add cloths to the tops of tables, add custom made decorative throw pillows of different shapes and sizes to that boring couch and add accessories that have texture. Your room will gain instant warmth.
Hint: You can use beautiful placements under lamps. Try placing a smaller square table cloth on your table (on the diagonal) so that the corners are on each side of the table as opposed to the corners of the table – leaving the corners of the table exposed. Or try crisscrossing two table runners for a different effect. If you have a favorite table cloth now, try getting some bold colored fabric napkins to coordinate with your table cloth. If you have curtain panels up now that you love – try adding a valance that compliments the room or add custom length drapery panels to the window that currently has only a valance to spice up the décor you already have!
Texture will add depth to what might otherwise be considered a rather flat fabric or element. Many of today’s fabrics are beautifully accented with texture. A certain amount of texture should be introduced in every décor. It will visually stimulate the eye, and help produce a beautiful room.
Texture can be added with materials that have a “character” of their own such as wood, wicker, tile, marble, glass, fabric and metal. It can be added with decorative embellishments such as tassels, bows, cording, and other decorative trims. You can add warmth with faux painting techniques, wallpaper and window treatments to name a few.
The most important part of decorating is obviously creating an atmosphere that makes you feel good and comfortable. Many times we try to copy a decor we see in a decorating magazine because it looks stylish and later realize that the room wasn’t created so much to be lived in as it was to be looked at. As long as you stick to what appeals to you and colors you enjoy, it’s hard to go wrong.
We have all been there. Found the perfect comforter or duvet cover only to find out that you can’t get the size dust ruffle you need or that the set you like doesn’t have any curtains to match. Very frustrating to say the least. You would think that with all the different comforters and bedspreads available you could readily find what you need. Not so, especially if your mattress is not a standard size. And let’s face it today’s mattresses range from low profile mattresses of no more than about a 10 inch drop to higher profile mattresses up to 22 inch drops or more.There just in no such thing as a standard mattress anymore. Custom bedding allows you to purchase dust ruffles and custom comforters in the drop height needed for your particular mattress as well as offering you the flexibility to mix and match fabrics of your choice for the coordinating dust ruffles, drapes, throw pillows and shams. Need a California King dust ruffle with a 20” drop – no problem! You can have your pillows and pillow shams made using one fabric for the pillow body and another contrasting fabric on the ruffles. If you want your bedroom to look as if you hired a professional decorator – choose custom bedding! You be your own designer and get the sizes you need for a custom look without the “professional decorator” price.

Color is fun and exciting, but it is contrast, or differences in values that often make the room design successful. Without contrast in value between your walls, furniture and window treatments the colors will blend together and your room will get lost in itself. Don’t be afraid to add some color – contrast in colors will clarify and add depth to your room. If you like neutral colored home decor fabrics for your drapes, no problem, just don’t forget to add that colorful table runner and decorative throw pillows to spice up your room!
