{trendspotting: greek key}

After the lovely Greek key motif inspiration from Bri's fabulous DIY dresser this week, and the pretty DIY faux panels we saw in Dabble magazine's premier issue, I thought I'd indulge in a little Greek key love today. What I adore most is that this motif can be bold or subtle, modern or traditional, the possibilities are endless!

I'd love to add a little touch to my own home with pillows:




Or how about Roman blinds? Love this look!





Fabrics, furnishings, trim, and even towels can bring a little Greek key into your space:







I'm convinced I need a bit of Greek key in my life! Are you embracing this versatile look?

Absolutely I love, love Greek Key in design. I used it on my front porch on the little footstool and also on the mirror it has a Greekesque look. I had fun looking at all of the above images. If you need a little more to look at I did a post on Greek Key last year!! I think Greek Key motif would be perfect for your home Nancy, xo Kathysue

Classic and always great design. You've highlighted some lovely images!

Bri@Meyouandawiener said...

You know it!

I really like it on romans! It feels fresh and tailored. For some reason on a pillow it feels more formal to me. Not that that's a bad things. But just really enjoy it framing a window!

Hey, stop snooping through my inspiration folders! ;-) It's almost scary how we seem to share a decorating brain - I love the Greek key motif too :-) It looks so good as a subtle detail on a cushion or curtains - although those blue & white chairs are pretty fab!

Have a great weekend, Nancy :-)
