My friend Michelle bought me a beautiful cream toque with an oversized fluffy pom pom. I would have never picked it out at the store myself, but as it turns out, it's my favourite go-to Winter hat (gotta love girlfriends who know you better than you know yourself!). So now, I am crushing on all things pom pom in the home. From pillows, to bedding, to curtains; from petite, to extra large; pom poms definitely make a playful statement. And although they are adorable in a children's room (think trim on a bed canopy), I like it best as an unexpected feature in a more sophisticated space.
Black has, and will continue to be, used as a classic and timeless shade in home decor. However, I love seeing it being used more unexpectedly. One of my all-time favourite ways to use black, is on interior trim.
Black trim can highlight an already beautiful window pane, can add dimension to french doors or add a statement to an otherwise standard element in the room. This simple paint technique is powerful.
