Trellis patterns pop up on ceramic tile

Recently I have been pinning (on Pinterest that is) about Treilage which to me means patterns like those found on a trellis.  But these days those patterns can be in many designs.  So I was fascinated when I saw Treilage in a new place....on tile!

I just love these ceramic tiles with the geometric patterns.  They come in several beautiful colors.  What a fabulous way to add another dimension to a tile wall.

Combining a rich color, reflective surface, and an intricate pattern, this tile really
makes a bold statement.

Having recently begun research on a new bathroom project I have visited several tile showrooms.  The new products I have been discovering are incredible. 
I will be posting soon on some of the other wonderful new look of tile.  What is your favorite way to use this delightful pattern I call Treilage?

Trellis, Ivy and Candlelight, a Delightful Privacy Screen

I have been thinking of creative ways to screen an exterior unsightly view.  There are many ways to accomplish this but some would block the light and close in the space.

The other day I came upon such a beautiful solution.  I just had to take a picture.

It may be hard to see but there is a trellis of sorts that hold candles and the vines in the planter climb the trellis.  I saw this at night and the candles gave such a soft glow to the seating area below.  The ivy screened the street and gave privacy to the space as well.

I am going to be on the hunt for more creative ways to deal with unappealing views.

I would love to hear how you may have dealt with similar situations.
