"We love using Samuel & Sons tape trims with wall coverings to provide a defined border edge, a great detail which creates such a tailored and finished look in any room." says David Lawrence of Carlos David, who used our Sabine Border in Slipper on the walls of this bathroom for a tonal look.

Designer Jeremy Clark turned to our French Grosgrain in Paprika to add a jolt of color to a recent Birmingham Home & Garden Inspiration Home project. “A room that is most successful lends an element of surprise–and the paprika grosgrain trim provided just that against the matte finish of the tea paper. This application is a simple way to achieve maximum impact and delight.” - Jeremy Clark

“At Kips Bay, we used trim in the powder bath to not only finish the somewhat jagged edges of the grasscloth wallpaper but also to add drama." says Caroline Gidiere who employed our Aristotle Greek Key Border in Porcelain Blue to bring a subtle pattern to the space.

Our Strata Ombré Border in Denim takes on a modern look in this chic space. “We love using traditional paneling in our classical projects, but for this modern home we needed to think outside of the box…The answer came in the form of a modern application of traditional trim” -  Irene Gunter of Gunter & Co
