|Lisa Mende Nailhead Trim|
It was Lisa Mende and Traci Zeller's Adamsleigh show house room that sold me on Grosgrain Ribbon and Nailhead trim. And then my other pals, Nancy and Bethany of 'Powell Brower at Home' perfectly executed this in their laundry room during this year's One Room Challenge. How could I not be all over this?
Since seeing these beautiful rooms, I have been just dying to try this out in one of the rooms in my own home. For a hot minute, I thought I may try it in the study. Then I settled on the mudroom.
I'm going to be adding grosgrain ribbon nailhead trim to the mudroom and I need your vote on the best color of ribbon for the project
It's voting time Vivid Hue Homies.
Here are the contenders:
1. 1" Petersham Rayon Grosgrain Azalea (the darker of the two in these photos)
2. 1" Petersham Rayon Grosgrain Hot Pink (don't let the words 'hot pink' fool you, it appears to be the more pale of the two in these photos).
3. Petersham Grosgrain in Black (not pictured).
My thoughts in ordering the pink shades of ribbon were that I wanted to be more daring in the mudroom. I may eventually consider painting the ceiling and I want to push the limits on creativity and fun. I thought for sure that I would love the azalea ribbon (the brighter of the two) but now that I have seen both ribbons up close, I am leaning towards the hot pink (more pale). I want the room to push the limit but I also want to keep it tasteful.
I haven't selected the nail heads yet but have been considering a square 1" shiny silver.
I tried to provide as many "in room" shots of both ribbons for your review. Be honest and let your feedback roll!
The trim on the x benches matches the azalea ribbon (but I don't necessarily want to match the entire room simply around 5 yards of trim that I've put around the benches...this trim can easily be swapped out).

What are your thoughts?
Azalea or Hot Pink? Or none of the above?
