Passementerie, or trimming as it is commonly known, is frequently used in fashion and interior design to embellish and enliven fabric. This type of decoration has been around for centuries and the exquisite details it gives to home and fashion is largely overlooked. However, many designers are coming up with new and creative ways to use trimmings to add the finishing touches to their creations. I happen to think that passementerie, whether ornate or subtle, adds an element to a room taking it from ordinary to extraordinary. Look at some of these beautiful examples. I am constantly inspired by creativity that others can conceive!
