Trellis patterns are all over!  The pattern of overlapping lines can be as simple as just diamonds and as complicated as the imperial pattern.  How can you use this classic pattern in your home?  Well, I have come up with seven ways to incorporate it into your decor below!  Enjoy! 

1. Overlay it on a Mirror

The contrast of trim over a mirror is a great way to feature the pattern and can really add some great layered texture in a room.

2. Frame Fabric and Hang on Walls

This is a quick and easy way to incorporate different trellis patterns into your decor.  Bonus points if you get your fabric from the remnant bin at your fabric store.

3.  Use it to Tie Together Accent Pieces

The use of the imperial trellis pattern on the pillows and the ottoman is a great way to add in a vivid pattern and tie the accent pieces in the room together.

4.  Alter an Basic Accessory

This simple DIY lamp makeover is a great way to add a little trellis pattern into your room.  You could also extend this idea to other accessories like a tray, the top of a table or a vase.

5.  Use it in your Window Treatments

If busy patterns make you a little nervous – contain them to just your window treatments and leave the rest of your room fairly neutral like the photo below.

6.  Accent the Back of a Bookcase

Love this idea!  Again this is a great way to add a little punch of pattern into a room and create a visual focal point.

7. Stencil it on a Wall

I think everyone was in love with this stenciled wall that Kate @ The Centsational Girl did in her Master Bedroom.  It was even shown when she was on the Nate Berkus Show!  Stenciling can be subtle – like Kate’s – or more dramatic.  All you have to do is adjust the contrast of your stencil color from your background color!

So there you go!  Seven great ways to add a beautiful and classic trellis pattern into your decor.  So I wanna know, do you like this pattern?  Have any in your home?  Any of these ideas inspire you to add some?

Oh what gorgeous ideas, isn't trellis so versatile and fresh? LOVE that #6 bookcase, already thinking how I can mimic something similar. Thank you for the linky love my friend, hope you're enjoying the little man!

I love it, especially the bookcase! We are using an open-back bookcase from Ikea for our entertainment center. I've been trying to think if something fun, but not too distracting to cover the back with, and I'm thinking a fabric with a trellis pattern might be the ticket!

Love all of those ideas, I've never really realized it but the trellis pattern looks so fresh and neat! Thanks for this post, pinning a few favorites onto pinterest. :)

Visiting from Serenity Now, have a great weekend!

Thanks so much for all of these suggestions! They are all beautiful! I am actually in the process right now of painting the top part of my daughter's room walls in a similar pattern. I am totally in love with it!! I want to do it on every single wall in my house...well almost!! :-)

I really want to stencil the back of my hutch and this post might have just sealed the deal. Great inspiration. Visiting from Serenity Now.

it's such a classic pattern. I love it on accents like pillows but the lampshade is a fun addition!

You know, I probably would have given pause to using it in back of the bookcase, thinking it might "compete" with other items. But, I love it. In fact, all these examples look terrific. Very fresh and fun! my best, -susan

I love simple do-it-in-an-afternoon projects so the lampshade is right up my street.
