A contrast trimming or banding on the vertical edges and or lower edge of a curtain is a very popular way to add instant interest to the curtain. Plain curtains can be given a graphic edge with banding.
Or a fabric covered base bar on a roller blind can tie the roller blind trim into the curtain fabric. Trimming can also be used to adjust the shape and proportion. The position of tiebacks will define the silhouette of curtains and hence affect the amount of light a room receives.
Where window treatments are themselves elaborate, accessories and trimmings is the icing on the cake, serving to heighten the sense of luxury.
Tassels are the punctuation points of window treatments and look fantastic when used in combination with corded ropes to serve as tiebacks. They come in a huge range of sizes and styles!
There are so many different types and styles of tiebacks – the classic shaped stiffened fabric tieback, tassels made from silk and ribbons, beaded ropes, plaited leather, even feathers! Some styles even come as a chair tie to really add that wow factor to your dining room.
Scatter cushions look fabulous as a finishing touch on a bed – and can be coordinated back to the curtain fabric, trimmed or piped in the same cord as on a pelmet…the possibilities are endless.
A seat cushion on a bedroom chair covered in coordinated or contrasting fabric really makes a statement.
