Ribbons and Trims: Embellishing Furniture, Furnishings and Home Accessories by Annabel Lewis

A long-established element of the fashion world, where they are used widely as trimmings, belts and tie fastenings, on shoes, clothes, hats and adorning wrists, necks and hair; ribbons also provide a wonderfully versatile way of providing a unique form of decoration in the home. Ribbons and Trims is a celebration of maximalism in interiors, with a wealth of inspiring and creative ideas for using these versatile accessories to add a decorative touch to your home. With her natural flair for colour and texture, nothing is too daunting or avant-garde for Annabel Lewis: everything from curtains, blinds, bed covers and furniture to cushions, throws, lamp shades and photo frames can be updated, customised and given a new lease of life to create a focal point, a burst of colour, idiosyncrasy and humour. Here Annabel explains simple techniques for weaving, ruching and wiring, as well as showing how to make accessories such as tassels, flowers, tiebacks and the ever adaptable Turk's-head knot. Ribbons & Trims also reveals endless design possibilities, with decorative ideas for every room in the home, and 25 step-by-step projects for creating one-off pieces upholstered or trimmed with ribbon, braid, beads or tassels. With pages of beautiful photographs by Claire Richardson, and inventive ideas, tips and inspiration for creating new looks, Ribbons & Trims will help you elevate your home decor to new heights. Haberdashery has never looked so hip.
