Five Ways to Use Ribbon & Trim

Ribbon or trim can add the final touch to a piece, creating the ultimate bespoke element for your home. Here are some of my favourite ways to use them.

Window Treatments

Most of my projects, for clients and in my own home, are window treatment heavy. I believe that as well as being very practical, curtains and blinds can tie a room together through the use of colour, pattern, and detail. Adding trim elevates them to a whole new level. I love to use brush or loop fringe on the leading edge of curtains to create a soft, elegant look. A grosgrain ribbon trim detail on Roman blinds or curtains creates a tailored, finished look, or it can be used for a more decorative design such as a lovely Greek key pattern.

A selection of cushions on a sofa are the perfect finishing touch to your living room. With the addition of trim, ribbon, tassels, and other adornments, the cushions have a bespoke quality. A box ribbon detail makes for a gorgeous, tailored look.

Outdoor Cushions

In my mind Alfresco areas deserve just as much attention as the interiors. Why not create gorgeous, usable outdoor rooms? With the use of outdoor fabrics and trims, you can create the same lush, inviting settings you would find indoors!


Several of my furniture pieces feature trim elements, such as my Margaux Ottoman and Peyton Sofa for example. With so many lovely designs out there, having these details sets them apart quite clearly. Fringed edges of a seat cushion, ribbon piping, or square sofa cushion designs add a layer to the interior which feels subtle yet considered.
