Edges are always worth considering when it comes to interiors as they’re the perfect place to add a touch of fun and can really elevate a design . Join us as we explore designing on the edge!
You can dress the depth or border of a headboard with pops of colour or textures such as studding. Doing so will frame and accentuate other fabrics and designs on a headboard.
Bold colours can help to increase a headboard’s depth. Here we’ve added a bold hot pink, which sits beautifully against a pale green fabric wall. This brings energy into the room.
We also like to add a touch of spontaneity to our headboards with flamboyant curves. This always makes a statement!
You can line the edge of curtains with bright colour combinations, as seen here. We also love to use a variety of trims.
Found fabrics can also be used. In this bedroom we’ve used a large scale ikat to create a wide edge on the curtains.
Look out for multiple edges on coffee tables and side tables. Find special character within your architectural details too by adding a scallop trim to a cabinet in your kitchen or by adding a special trim to a shelf.
Let your creativity flow and design custom edges for your lampshades or frames. Play with texture and colour to create interesting pieces.
