Lattice on Walls

Monday, April 29, 2013

It seems I  still have wall treatments on the brain, and the latest option I want to share with you is using lattice on your walls.  And I'm not talking about lattice or trellis wallpaper, I mean real lattice. The kind they sell at Lowe's.  

After sourcing images for this treatment, I've come to the conclusion that it's pretty versatile.  It can go casual, as demonstrated in the next few photos.

In this Paris apartment the lattice is backed with mirror, and is used in a formal setting.



Here's a modern interpretation of a custom trellis design I found on Apartment Therapy

Original source unknown
Again, the treatment above is certainly custom made, but has a modern feel.


As does this wall treatment, which was made to mimic the iron railing outside the window.

So what do you think?  Like the lattice?

It sure is pretty in all of these images. I like it with the mirror backing but I would like it better at someone else's house. ;)

Have always really liked it when I have seen it in a magazine...but do not know if I would actually use it in my own home:) Take care, Caroline

omg Kim - so my aunt asked my mom to come down to NC to help her put lattice on her breakfast room walls. It was wedgewood blue walls with white lattice. we thought she was nuts at the time, but apparently, as i see here, she was ahead of her time :) I love all the images. maybe because it reminds me of my beloved aunt too :)

I LOVE it in every single picture. I wish I had a way to use some in my house!

Did you see Kim Macumber's post today? She used it in her home. I think it could be really good or too much. I don't think there is a middle ground on this one. I love the custom treatments you showed. That is some serious work.

Oh this is clever!
It's now somewhere "stored" in my silly little head for the future!

What great statement pieces!! I would love to hang art on it too.
Thanks for sharing, Kim.

I like how Kim used it with glass on top, otherwise it would be a dusting nightmare! Sorry to rain on the parade. :)

I love the formal European looks - wouldn't use the Lowe's version inside because it has such a rustic feel to it.

I'm not sure about this one although the first photo is pretty.

Oh, yeah, I never thought about the dust. Uggh. It always reminds me of Eddie Ross' room that he did for the finale of Top Design. Remember that? There's got to be a photo somewhere. I can appreciate it elsewhere but not sure I can do it in my own home. Wonder if O'verlays could be used for walls?

Would have never thought of this or even thought that I would like it, but these images are all gorgeous!

I love it and always think that I am going to be able to use it in my stores. So far it doesn't make it from inspiration to actual. Perhaps the next one.

I absolutely love lattice, it is so Palm Beach Chic! My Grandmother (in West Texas) has it in her garden room... it is avocado green and was installed in the early 1960s, but it is still fabulous.

XOXO,

HA! Just catching up ... I just used it (the plastic version) on my dresser top for fun! I love it in the right place!! beautiful inspiration!! xo

Heaven! I love the lattice walls - I have never seen that done. It brings so much texture to the space! Beautiful!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

It has to be done right or it could look a little tacky!

Kim, I remember in the early 70s Lattice was very popular and was used often on walls or ceilings. I love the fresh garden feel it evokes, so Yes, I like lattice on the walls, You showed some great images and examples here today,

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for something completely unique. P.
S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

I really like the way it looks. Of course it's all about context but I think any time you can get added texture it's a great idea.

I've recently seen it painted a light blue and used on a slanted ceiling. So pretty!
