Wide tape trims can easily transform a pillow, upholstery and a window treatment with their graphic presence. They are just the kind of decorative details that make custom design creations so special. The new Corinthia Collection of embroidered wool and linen tapes from Samuel and Sons command attention with their classically-inspired architectural and tile design elements. The unique color range means there is something for everyone, and I love the lush texture and surface relief that the pattern and applique provides. Available in 2.75 inch or 5 inch borders, the only limit is your application imagination.

Greek Fret in Camel
in Tandoori, a favorite of mine
Ogee in Alabaster
For Kelly Wearstler's second collection of trims with Groundworks at
, the palette is a muted, dusty color story, filled with vintage-inspired patterns. She brings her own brand of luxe glamour to her fabric, wallpaper and trim designs, always pushing the colors and patterns beyond what we expect, innovating every step of the way. Dipped fringe, subtle ombred details and gradient hues combine in a sophisticated assortment of widely usable trim, predominantly tapes.
