Monday's Lesson: Pattern 101 Imperial Trellis [one of my most loved patterns]

For anyone out there thinking of writing a blog, just a heads up, the second entry is the hardest! I say this because I have a whole list of things I want to share with you over the coming months and trying to prioritise them all is a big call.
I was intending to write that the Imperial Trellis is my most loved pattern, but as my fingers hit the keys I think of all the plaids & stripes, herringbones and houndstooths that I love and find the need to re-phrase my statement. So here it is ‘The Imperial Trellis is what I consider the most timeless and elegant of patterns’.

History proves it, having originally been a pattern reserved for use in the royal palaces of eastern rulers, the Imperial Trellis had a revival in the 70’s and is once again seeing the light of day, timeless!

The most commonly featured Imperial Trellis is by Schumacher for Kelly Wearstler, available as both fabric and wallpaper. However most fabric houses have their own twist on the classic.
