Trend We Love: Greek Key
Get to know the ancient pattern with some serious staying power.
Just as the name implies, we can thank the ancient Greeks for gifting us with their snaking key pattern. No longer reserved for Neo-classical buildings and stone friezes, this geometric motif has enjoyed a steady presence in the design world—making the Gods of Mount Olympus pleased, I'm sure. Trad-loving mortals will be happy to know that the ornamentation can be found on just about every home finishing, from blue-and-white tiles to etched barware and beyond. It's also more versatile than you may have expected: Greek key in bright, poppy hues can read preppy and cheery, while muted tones lend a sophisticated and timeless aesthetic.
