Tell Me Tuesday…BAM or SLAM!?

BAM for last week’s topic, HUNTER GREEN!

Last week’s discussion was mixed.  Most of my readers are open to hunter green coming back into vogue in a fresh way, but a few of you were not very excited to see the color come back around.   To read the comments from last week, click here.

This week, let’s discuss…Contrast Welting

Are you a fan?

  1. In all the pictures above, yes! The fabrics have to work together in some way; some colour combos should never be seen aha

  7. BAM! for me. It makes a piece of furniture, or pillow, look finished and I alway love contrast.

  10. BAM! BAM! BAM! I think it’s a terrifically upscale addition, although I agree that the contrasting piping must be CAREFULLY chosen.

    By the way, that first room up there (NOT the kitchen) has me drooling!

  11. Most definitely! It’s been a trend for a while now, and it’s definitely not going anywhere. Market was a full of contrasting welts!! I love that it showcases another little detail not left untouched in a space!

    Slam, dated looking.

  17. An opportunity to add another color to the mix and some visual interest??? Sign me up. EVERY TIME. (c; And I agree, you rock at picking the topics for these, every time one pops up, I’m like *headslap*, totally!!!

  18. The fun feel it gives a space is a bam, but I’m very practical and it will tie you down to certain colors that will prevent you from being able to easily change the feel of a space. For that it’s a slam. (or did I get the bam and slam confused?) You know what I mean!! M.

  20. I have to go with a Bam….love it. Wish I had more of it. ;)

  21. Contrast welting gives furniture such a finished and designer look and really grounds it…keeps a solid light color piece from appearing to “float”. Not sure what is dated about highlighting the shape and outline of a piece of furniture and in a crisp and trendy color it is right on trend.

  24. Yes, Yes, and YES again! I freaking love the contrast! BAM, baby!
