Loving Lattice

Hello everyone!  Hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's day yesterday.  Being a new blogger, I have learned, so far, that the more I think about design, houses, blogging, whatever...I start finding more and more out about myself and the things I really love.  I wanted to share something that I've really been loving lately.  Lattice work.  Some may say trellis, I say lattice.  I'm seeing it everywhere!  It's really chic right now I know, I know, lattice is not a surprise, but it has always been a design that struck my fancy.  What I am finding out about myself is that, I just love good clean classics.  Who doesn't?!  But I never veer to far from those kinds of things.  You know, things like subway tile, aviator sunglasses, jeans, chesterfield sofas, hair in a bun, yadda, yadda.  If my hair was long enough I would whip it up in a bun and plop on a chesterfield with a good classic book right now.  My point is, I know it's overly trendy right now...sure.  But I think current trends are new growth of old roots. I'd love to use this design in the new basement family room.  Remember the $30 relic that's going down there (below) ?



I want to keep it clean and simple with a solid color fabric but jazz it up with pillows for the back.  Or maybe just all pillows in place of the current orange wedges altogether.
Like these?...

I have always loved Chippendale, so I just want a little, more cost effective, piece for that in my own environment to appreciate.

I may end up using a rug instead of the pillows, but either way, when I'm over the trend, I can change it guilt free because I didn't do the whole sofa in it.

If only I were young enough to pull of that shirt!  How cool.  I'll keep you posted on how it turns out, but until then...
Long Live Lattice!
