How many times have you heard the phrase âbring the outdoors insideâ? If you are an avid follower of interior design trends, then probably quite a few. The exterior has often been used as a source of design inspiration and this month’s trend is no different.
The latest pattern that has found its way onto household items is the trellis pattern (sometimes referred to as trellis or trellis), a design inspired by country gardens – usually a wooden stand displaying climbing foliage. So, while avoiding clichÃ©s on how to describe this trend, we can say that it is a look that is imposed on us.
Trellis is certainly not making its design debut in the interior design world. In 1862, William Morris designed âTrellis,â his first wallpaper pattern, an intricate woven pattern that features birds and roses, sprawled out on a crisscrossing wooden frame. To this day the wallpaper is on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum (London, UK) and is still produced by Morris & Co. Perhaps the lattice is not so much a trend, but a staple of interior decoration.
One of the reasons this pattern seems timeless is the intertwined structure and the overall architectural appearance, giving this design a modern touch. Whether you want to adorn your walls, invest in furniture, or just update your home accessories, there is an opportunity to introduce trellises into your home at different scales. From classic to modern, we’ve reached out to some of our favorite designers for their interior decorating tips on this look.
1. Think about the finer details
âUpholstery has the ability to delineate or accentuate the lines of a window treatment or furniture – or bring together different elements of a room,â says Marisa Gutmacher, Executive Director of Design, Samuel & Sons.
With every look that becomes popular, it’s easy to think that a trend needs to be applied to every aspect of your home. However, this is where âeverything in moderationâ comes in – using restraint when introducing a new design detail into your project allows for a more enduring style and decor with elements of surprise.
The Treillage trellis edging, $ 89.49 per m / Â£ 67 per m, by Samuel & Sons is a perfect way to dip one foot into the trellis trend ‘with its monochrome open woven construction, it’s a very versatile detail. to add to a space, ‘explains Marisa.
âIt pairs well with small-scale prints or plain fabrics; adding an extra textural dimension without taking the eye away from the fabric itself, instead providing a frame and window to color. In this way, it reflects the work of the trellis in the garden, which provides structure and form, without being the main objective, âshe adds.
When asked how to style this beautiful trim, Marisa said, âThe Navy and Emerald colourways were chosen to reflect the brilliant colors found in the garden, which will pair with more saturated colors or contrast beautifully with neutrals. – and the Ivory color has been selected for its versatility and ability to balance most palettes. ‘
2. Choose small accessories in bold hues
Having just celebrated the 5th anniversary of the launch of her coveted scalloped lampshade, Matilda Goad always has her finger on the pulse of ever-changing trends.

3. For a statement style, go wall to wall with a pattern
After a few hectic years and many of us spending more time indoors, those lucky enough to have an outdoor space have often chosen to make it an extension of their home. âThere is a constant desire to blur the lines between the exterior and interior of our homes and to bring the beauty of the outdoors into the interior,â says Richard Smith, Founder and Creative Director, Madeaux.
When discussing why the trellis pattern has become popular, Richard suggests that âfloral designs are an obvious way to celebrate this, from exuberant large-scale flowers to smaller-scale repeats. Adding a trellis above these patterns provides an extra layer of structure, a geometric edge, which can balance out more whimsical or trailing flowers.
Madeaux has a number of trellis wallpaper designs in their collection, this Cameo Trellis grass canvas wallpaper, $ 104.18 / Â£ 78 per m, is just one of them. A lattice pattern evokes natural materials, as Richard “Bacchus” emphasizes [a Madeaux design] captures the beauty of loaded vines, conveying the sense of the fresh, aromatic scent of the grape filling the air. ‘Rose Trellis’ [a Madeaux design] and ‘Cameo Trellis’ [shown above] bringing to life the feel of a classic English garden, and how, with each passing season, the flowers intertwine within the trellis structure until they themselves become a constantly changing sculptural form â.

It allows you to bring the beauty of nature inside the home in a subtle and sophisticated way, âshe adds.
Molly Mahon’s Trellis tablecloth, $ 125.56 / Â£ 94, was originally launched as part of her Greencombe collection. A selection of beautiful designs printed on cottons and linens, all designed in Sussex and hand blocked in Rajasthan.
âI chose a palette to incorporate some of the bright, cheerful colors. I love working with some of the earthier tones of the Indian desert and the English countryside. This allows for a range of options for those looking for something sophisticated with a touch of cheerful charm, âexplains Molly.
Asked about the inspiration for this design, Molly adds, “Using the trellis repeat of a garden trellis, this is a blocked print interpretation of a plaid fabric using rich, contrasting colors.”
