The Traditional Trend You Didn't Know Was Cool
Latticework, also known as treillage, may have a passé reputation, but we prefer to think of it as classic, perfectly conveyed in this amazing space by French designer Jean-Louis Denoit captured by Richard Powers. This sophisticated garden-inspired look is here and better than ever. Normally used outdoors as support for growing vines, these criss-crossed woodwork overlays are creeping inside, and being used as wall and ceiling treatments in sunrooms, family rooms, and even dining spaces. While it may have the aforementioned traditional-décor reputation, when mixed with crystal light fixtures, gloss-finish furniture, and metallic accents, latticework applied to walls and ceilings takes on a modern, youthful look. We love how it adds texture and dimension to walls, while effectively evoking a feeling of bringing the outdoors in. When layered over surfaces painted in the same shade, the look is contemporary, and, as proven by Denoit's work, becomes especially glam and luxurious when backed with mirror.
