Design Trend: Trellis Patterns
February 8, 2013 by ConfettiStyle
I’ve been knee-deep in projects (resulting in this late Friday post) and all of them keep leading me to a design trend that just keeps gaining steam. Trellis Patterns have been on the top of the design “it” list for a while now and with the fresh, modern and classic feel they give to a room design, I don’t see them going anywhere soon.
Here are the trellis looks that have provided my most recent inspiration…
While this bold black and white pattern makes me a bit dizzy I still love the impact is gives! In a small bathroom, on a focal wall or lining the back of a closet, a trellis pattern is just about all the décor you’ll need.
The Imperial Trellis pattern, the most popular in this pattern group is perfect as an accent on pillows…
as curtain panels…
on a chair…
or covering an ottoman!
I also love the look of a trellis pattern lining the backs of bookcases. The pattern draws you in but still allows the decorative elements to stand out.
Here are a few more trellis pattern styles that are inspiring.
I love the look of this reverse color trellis design, still bold but in a more subtle way.
In a non-traditional color, a trellis pattern is a great option for a ladies dressing room, closet or home office.
And in a classic green color, the trellis pattern provides a perfect contrast to classic black and gold.
Classic * Modern * Edgy * Timeless * Fresh * Dynamic * Bold===What’s not to love about Trellis Patterns?
In doing a little research on the trellis pattern, I learned that the first trellis wallpaper design was originally printed by William Morris in 1864 in England. It was supposedly inspired by a trellis in his garden at Red House in Kent, England. I also learned that Morris lived by one of my favorite mottos…“Have nothing in your
house which you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend!
