Try the Greek Key Motif to Unlock the Decor

Is it because it's warm that we're suddenly wishing we were footloose and fancy-free on the Greek Isles? House Beautiful was of our same mind. We took a few of the items that they spotlit, that icorporate the classic motif, and added a few of our own. Maybe not as good as the white sandy beaches, but probably a little more lasting.

Leave it to Martha to always do it in classic good taste. Here, a Greek-Key line is a more interesting stand-in for a too-simple stripe. Available at KMart.

For a bit of Hollywood Glamour, consider this screen from House Eclectic.

This table, from Landfair Furniture would make a great nightstand or end table.

For a subtle touch of the motif, consider this light pull from Shades of Light.

If you're gonna go Jonathan Adler, you're gonna go bold. We think this wallpaper would be awesome on one wall in an otherwise monochrome bathroom. Also in taupe and white on white. Or, of course, one of his classic pillows.

Williams Sonoma Home's a big fan of this motif. We especially like this chair, and the towels in the opening image, for a subtle take on the design.

Greek Key's always a popular design on towels. Thomas O'Brien's version for Target are pared down and modern.
