Design Trend: Pom Poms!

Have you noticed the pom poms that have been adorning home decor items lately? Pom poms are appearing on everything from baskets to bedding and bath items.

I love pom poms.  They add a touch of lighthearted fun to ordinary items. I have hot-glued pom pom trim to a variety of items over the years to add color and pizzaz. I put pom pom trim on window treatments and shower curtains and have embellished lamp shades with it. It is an easy and inexpensive addition, but has a dramatic effect. Pom poms add color and whimsy to whatever they adorn.

Here is my kids’ bathroom shower curtain to which I added green pom pom trim:


Here, in my daughter’s room, is a window treatment to which I added pink pom pom trim:


There are many home decor items featuring pom poms right now. Moroccan blankets with pom poms have become all the rage.  Here are a couple of pretty bedrooms that feature these blankets at the end of the bed:
