Ribbon Trim

The greek key ribbon trim shown on the window treatments in yesterday's post was my first foray into the world of jacquard ribbon trim.  Beyond greek key, there are so many beautiful designs out there that would be great for trimming out curtains, pillows, and other home decor projects.  One site that I love to peruse (though I have yet to place an order) is Les Bon Ribbon.

Here's my favorite from their site (so many lovely colorways):





Wouldn't this be cute in a teen girl's bedroom - maybe trimming out a fabric covered bulletin board?  


With it's particular shade of purplish pink - it reminded me of the beautiful Amanda Nisbet bedroom shown below (speaking of ribbon trim).

Love that headboard, bedskirt and roman shade.  Though those pieces are quite "matchy-matchy" (a particular weakness of mine) - the unique chair, awesome rug (hello greek key!) and punchy art keep this room from being "sweet" - and instead, make it interesting and sophisticated.
