Luxe for Less - Imperial Trellis Fabric

Last year I fell in love with Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis designs.  You know you're a design nut or need some excitement in your life when you can fall in love with a home decor fabric.  But I just couldn't help it until I saw the price of the fabric.....my poor little heart was broken instantly. sigh  While I still heart the design I couldn't justify paying that amount of money for fabric.



So I started looking for a comparable fabric that would give me the same effect and of course Google had the answer (isn't he great, my kids think I'm crazy for thinking the search engine is a person, but come on he knows everything).  Tonic Living located in Canada has comparable imperial trellis fabric called garden trellis and for less than $10 a yard.  It isn't exactly the same but it's darn close. Isn't that a bargain?

  1. I agree! Very addictive! I have it all over my blog too. Infact, my goal was to find a very similar pattern at a much lower cost and I found some amazing fabric almost identical pattern for less than $25/yard! I might end up selling some of it soon, so check my blog occassionally. www.loft32.blogspot.com

  4. Aren't the throw pillows in your living room made from the orignal Imperial Trellis? I know they aren't the Garden Trellis as the scale on that fabric is much smaller and I can see the print is not what you used.
    Would love to know.

    thanks!
