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.
