lately, i have been drawn to details...mostly in upholstery, pillow designs, and window treatments.  things that take an ordinary piece to the next level.  most of them are really simple: adding a contrast color for cording or as a banding on a solid upholstery piece,  using a mini flange (i love it w/ ruffle pleat corners) on pillows or chair cushions, adding a stripe (or pattern) fabric banding to simple roman shades or down the leading edge of panels give an extra oomph, or simply using another fabric on the backs of chairs adds an element of surprise to any space.   simple details like these make all the difference in the world!!  try one next time your thinking of updating a piece!!!

Thanks for the link to my kitchen chairs! My upholsterer just did a new sofa for his showroom with a flange on the edges. I almost died when I saw it!
