Trim or fringe can be just the accent you need in your home and it is making a come-back. The way the trim is used and which trim you use makes all the difference.
Pillows: Add fringe or trim to pillows but keep it to no longer than 2”.
Furniture: Add bouillon fringe instead of a fabric “skirt” at the bottom of a chair, a sofa or even an ottoman. Trim that is 7”, 9” or even 11” long is appropriate here.
Rugs: Don’t make the fringe on your area rug too long. This is a good place to catch dirt and perhaps cause you to trip.
Draperies or Side Panels: Textured tapes or braided tapes are perfect for accenting hems and the leading edge of your draperies or panels. These tapes can be only ½” wide or as wide as 3”. Tapes are more tailored and not fussy looking.
Valances: Fringe can accent the shape of a hem of a valance. Or a textured tape on the straight hem of a valance can draw your eye up to give more height to the room.
Lamp Shades: Glue fringe on the edge of the lamp shade to accent the shape of the shade.
