It’s usually the small details that make the biggest statement in a design.  You can tell that something is really special if everything is perfectly thought out and even the smallest parts are paid careful attention. (One reason that I love everything at Anthropologie — they seem to take time to consider the extra details — more pleating, an extra ruffle, a luxurious embroidery.)

Nailhead trim is a great detail for…almost anything.  Adds a bit of glam with its metal finish and really makes a piece look well thought out and complete.

Here are some great inspiration photos for your own nailhead trim DIY projects (I’m certainly going to keep these in mind — I have some chairs I need to refinish, and I’m thinking there’s definitely going to be some nailhead patterning involved….)
