Greek Key, take 2

I know I’ve already dedicated an entire post to the Greek Key, but it’s a classic symbol that can be incorporated into your life in sooooo many ways.  Therefore, expect more greek key posts in the future.  My last greek key post was over a year ago, anyway.  I’m trying to think of where I have the greek key symbol in my apartment… I don’t think I do.  I guess I’m a hypocrite!?

Greek Key


The Greek key is probably my favorite motif used in decorating.  Dictionary.com defines the greek key as “an ornamental pattern consisting of repeated vertical and horizontal lines (often in relief)”.  I would define it as one of the most popular ornaments used in interior design in ANY form your heart desires.  Here are some pictures that show all the different ways to incorporate the greek key into decorating a home…
