It's All in the Details

Carolina Herrera Baez's apartment is nothing short of fabulous, but one of the most interesting details in her home is this ribbon and nailhead trim.  This would be a pretty easy DIY (the worst part would be the time commitment) and could really add a wow factor to a room.  I would do this in a small space that doesn't have much furniture so that you could see the detail above the baseboards.  I would also choose a space that isn't high traffic and maybe do a darker colored ribbon so that dirt wouldn't show.  Another factor in warding off the dirt might be the height of the baseboards.  Notice that hers look to be at least six inches high.  Not sure if I have an appropriate place in my home for this treatment, but am filing it away for future reference!
