Greek Key

Greek Key. It's a popular look these days - showing up all over the place! Greek key is a decorative border or pattern that comes in several varieties. There seems to be no limit as to where it can be used either. You'll find the pattern showing up on everything from bedding to purses. 

My favourite place to find it is on the front of a sideboard or dresser. For example...

The above tone-on-tone look is subtle and classic. If you prefer contrast and some colour, there are those options too. (I like both looks and kind of flip-flop between the two.)

Would you believe this turquoise/gold dresser is an IKEA hack/DIY project? You can read about it here.

Now (if you're up for a little fun), here are a few different rooms, all of which have some greek key in them. See if you can spot it. For some, it's obvious. For others, you have to look a little more closely. Have fun!
