The Art of Trim Placement: Enhancing Pillow Design

1. Consider the Overall Aesthetic
Before diving into trim selection, evaluate the overall aesthetic of your space. Are you aiming for a classic, timeless look or a more contemporary, eclectic vibe? Understanding the vibe will guide you in choosing the right trim style, whether it's classic piping, playful pom-poms, or intricate beading.
2. Harmony in Color and Texture
The trim color should either complement or contrast with the fabric, adding depth and visual interest. For example, a white trim can give a vibrant fabric a clean, tailored finish, while a matching color can create a seamless, monochromatic look. 
4. Mixing and Matching
Don't be afraid to mix and match trims within a space. While cohesiveness is important, a curated assortment of trims can add depth and character to your design.
5. Let Function Inform Design
Consider the pillow's purpose. Is it purely decorative or meant for comfort and lounging? If it's for seating, opt for trims that can withstand a bit of wear and tear. If it's primarily decorative, you have more freedom to explore intricate or delicate options.
6. Personalize and Experiment
Trim placement is an art, and like any art form, it's open to interpretation. Don't be afraid to get creative and think outside the box. Experiment with unconventional trim placements or even consider layering multiple trims for a truly bespoke look.
