It’s All Greek to Me

{This room, designed by the Brooklyn Home Company features Greek key wallpaper by Jonathan Adler.}

All it takes is one look at my blog header to know that I am crazy about Greek key. I love all types of patterns (zig zag,trellis, quatrefoil) but Greek key tops my list for its classic, enduring quality. Over the weekend, I was going through my inspiration files to organize them a bit better and I noticed that I had an abundance of images featuring this timeless motif.

  1. You got the key!
    And if I may add, perch. in New Orleans has some very cute indoor outdoor rugs with a Greek key border made from recycled material.
    And a 5 x 8 is only $77.!

  2. Yes! Greek key and quatrefoil tie for my favorite motif. And I’m embarrassed to say how many of those items you’ve featured that I either have (the kate lamp, the side table from Worlds Away) or want (the MW rug, the Alexa Hampton sconce….).

  3. You caught us! Yes, we are Greek Key Geeks–all the way. We are so out of control with this motif, a friend’s husband named a new company “Greek Key.” I wonder if I will look back in anguish!

  4. Wonderful post!

    My home is full of “greek Key” from room to room–tables, consoles, mirrors, bedroom linens; cannot get enough of it. We even have some of the items feature in this post! Couldn’t find drapery finials, so my husband make several for me. And we have a lovely home according to most people that visit us…we are definitely part of this “greek” clique.

    Keep up the good work!

  5. Yummmmmmy! I have that exact JA greek key rug and it’s one of my favorite things I’ve ever purchased! Lewis and Sheron has a great greek key trim, and Madeline Weinrib has some great greek key cotton flat weaves too! Love this round up Paloma!

  6. I adore this motif so much, have it on my bedding as a border…and now, after seeing all of thees amazing interpretations, thinking I need to add some more to my home!

  7. Hi Paloma! Thank you so much for sharing such beautiful designs. I absolutely love Greek patterns as well, and I never thought that they would bring so much richness to a space. I especially love the area rugs contrasted in the dark hardwood flooring! Can’t wait to get one of my own 😉

  8. I’m crazy for Greek Key! So much so that it’s the carpet in my young son’s room. I also have it in pillows on my family room sofa (leaning on right now). I honestly can’t get enough…but am speed ordering those items from La Plates!
