Add Interest to your custom cornices!

Dec 29, 2011

I have noticed that most of the houses I visit that have cornices are very ordinary and even sometimes boring!

A cornice board can be stunning, and very unique! Below are some ideas to add more interest and beauty:

  • Vary the textures, add various fabrics.
  • Add unusual trims and embellishments such as trims with beads, feathers, shells, crystals, or unique tassels.
  • Do you have arches in your room and you like to emphasis this architectural feature? Have the lower edge of your cornice to follow the arches! Your guests will notice.
  • Add buttons, metal nails and tassels.
  • How about adding ruffles,  banding or pleats.

These were my ideas! How about your ideas, would you like to share?
