Trelliage Dreams

I’ve just listed a multi-family property in Bristol (view the listing, here) which will make for an excellent investment for a buyer. Like any property, I enjoy seeing its existing state and dreaming up all of the possibilities that could unfold with a little imagination. I was so enchanted by this shed-like structure on the property as the lattice work reminded me of some beautiful spaces I’ve seen that incorporate the same trelliage-like design. “Trelliage” is a word from the french, used to describe an artistic and architectural use of latticework, originally designed to support growing vines. In present day, we see it in gardens, garden follies and other chic and clever uses, including interior spaces. (If you find this especially interesting, do visit Accents of France, a spectacular company in France that designs and manufactures some exquisite trelliage designs, all over the world).

With these other beautiful spaces in mind (see below), my mind is flooded with ideas for this space. It could be a fun space to bring friends to entertain or even a lovely garden shed. Often, it only takes the inspirational imagery, a can (or two!) of paint, and a few core elements. I’m interested to see what the next owner of this property does! For now, stay inspired…
