Lattice and trellis work is usually seen in an abundance of exterior spaces. I absolutely love it and even better I love how more and more it is being used in interior spaces here in the United States. The charm and character it can add to a room is beautiful! You can use it as a focal point more like an art piece or you can transform an entire space with it. Lattice is a framework or structure of crossed wood or metal strips and it’s first known use was in the fourteenth century. There are the usual types you are probably use to seeing at the big box home improvement stores but they can also be custom made to fit in with almost any decorating style. I really love how it can add spice to an otherwise flat room by giving it three dimensional appeal. When the lattice is painted or the surface underneath is painted or wallpapered the addition of lattice can produce some amazing results. I have found many amazing rooms with this lovely detail and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I am hoping to do this in one of my bathrooms because it is rather small and boring at the moment.

I hope you have been as inspired as I have and are maybe entertaining the idea of bringing this lovely detail in to your home in some way, shape or form. I really want to put some up on top of a beautiful wallpaper in my bathroom and am also considering updating a dated room divider with perhaps a custom lattice treatment. When I do it I will be sure to blog about it. Happy Decorating!
I remember when letters were hot and they still are. What is really trending now is words and typography. I am seeing them everywhere and on everything! I personally love the trend because I love quotes that are funny or inspiring and I especially love how one simple word can create an atmosphere or evoke a certain emotion. There are a lot of ways you can add them in to your decor and embrace the trend yourself. You can find them on art, wood, pillows, cork, made out of rope, on furniture and one of my favorites, on walls. A simple word on a wall or a wall of words, it’s your choice! A simple, yet complex word like love, displayed on a display table ,can be the focus of a lovely vignette when it is surrounded by photos of friends and family. Your home already reflects your personality and you can pop it up a notch and make some statements as well with the words you use. Here are some ways others have made their homes quote-worthy!
Frame a Word

Love this bathroom display
One simple word
Decorate your Work Space

A little can go a long way or a lot can make a bold statement! I really love this trend in decorating and I hope it stays around a long time. In a way I think it is a sign of the times. A lot of people prefer to text than talk so I am a little out of trend as far as that goes. I prefer a good conversation. With life as fast paced as it is now we don’t always stop and say the things we mean or need to say. Perhaps if we add it to our homes it will be a daily reminder to say what we mean to say and to choose our words carefully.

One of my favorite trends in home decor is knits. They really soften up a space and provide warmth during the colder seasons and bring in that coziness that adds that special touch to any room. I prefer to use the softer, more neutral colors this time of year and as it gets warmer outside add those brights in as the seasons change. Pillows, throws and bedding are just one way to incorporate knits in to your home decor. With their popularity you can now find them in home accessories and furniture as well. I have gathered some beauties from Pinterest for you to see how they can bring a special kind of feeling in to your spaces. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I am currently wrapped up in a soft cable knitted throw I got from Target last year and oh my is it soft and warm!
As you can see knits will work with any type of decor and are a beautiful addition to any room. One of my favorite ideas was using a beautiful knitted throw as a tablecloth. These beautiful knits really say welcome, come in and stay awhile and relax. Hopefully you have been inspired to bring some of these beauties in to your home.
Many of us today are following a strict budget and we may not have the money to go out and buy new decorative items for our interiors. One of the things that I do when I become discontent with a certain room is to go shopping in my own home. Yes I do! It is an easy and cost free way to blast the discontent away from a space. Try taking some accessories from a bedroom or another area in your home and put them on display elsewhere. You will be amazed at how this simple change can make all the difference in the world. Rearranging your space, if it is possible, will freshen your space and bring it back to life. Money is not always needed to provide the change you need and these are some simple ideas that can go a long way in bringing the happiness factor back to your room.
