Fringe isn't for your Grandma...

I'm spending even MORE time online these days because of the "stay at home" order by our governor. So I've been doing even more reading than usual of my favorite shelter magazines. I've seen fringe everywhere and I'm here for it!! I LOVE it. It can be as a tape on sofas, pillows, or even on rugs. There are so many cool uses. IT can add texture, sophistication, and style. Below are a few of my favorite examples. Let me know are you here for the fringe or no??

 This whole room below from Architectural Digest is eye candy. The fringe tape on the sofa connects the formal // casual look of the sofa with the painted floors. I love the use of color and patterns. This amazing design of a room that begs for friends to sit on the sofa and chat together.

To furnish her East Hampton weekend house, @krbnyc owner Kate Rheinstein Brodsky (@krbrodsky) supplemented old favorites with what Brodsky terms “a few grand gestures” inspired by “great American masters—@tomscheerer, @jeffreybilhuber, and @bunnys_eye.” She is fortunate that those designers are also her friends. In the sunroom, Brodsky covered a giant sofa in a @penny_morrison_ltd pink-and-cream graphic pattern and then set it atop a rose-and-white checkerboard painted floor by @chrispearsonfloors using @benjaminmoore’s Onyx White and @c2paint’s Bombay.

This bright and happy spot from Apartment Therapy caught my eye the other day. The Fringe on this bed skirt adds one more element of texture to this room. The bed skirt along with the pillows, blanket, and plush rug makes for a great spot to relax or get some work done.



The Swoon Factor is on HIGH with this divine dining room in Veranda Magazine. The Degournay wallcovering and silk skirted table bring the WOW factor for sure! This more formal fringe on the skirted table is like the perfect bow on your beautifully wrapped present. PERFECTION!



This bedroom SCREAMS California cool to me. It's modern, cool, and comfortable.. Dominio always brings the cool kids to the yard and this is no exception. I am obsessed with this color palette and the use of textures. The fringed pillow caught my eye immediately.  Am I cool enough for this room? Absolutely not. Do I adore it. Absolutely yes. 

This living room featured in Southern Home Magazine stopped me from scrolling immediately. I was really impressed with the use of patterns, textures and the painting(?) textile(?) framed on the wall. It reminded me of walking into a friend's living room.  Clary Bosbyshell Welsh uses the fringe on the sofa to add just one more layer of design YES! to this room.


Cool, modern, and functional is the way I would describe this room on Lonny. It's the subtle features in this room that make is stand out. I'm loving the fringe on the rug. It's just a turn different than what you'd usually see. There is something about it that I'm really drawn to. Again I'm not cool enough to have this room in my home but I really enjoyed looking closely at this room and really seeing all of the design elements and thought that went into it. 



Last photo and it's one of my faves ... Oh this bedroom designed by Jonathan Adler in Elle Decor. I would never leave, it is bright, uses all kinds of textures, love the use of blue, palm trees mirrored screens, elephant end tables and of course the sofa has the best fringe tape! This room screams happy to me!! 



So tell me are you liking the fringe or does it feel to Grandma for you? Be honest and share your thoughts!!
