Greek Key to My Heart

When I was little, we had a living room that was more like the "fancy room".  We only spent the holidays there and the decor reflected that sentiment.  In particular, were two couches that I always despised {little did I know, that my parents had great taste!}.  I didn't understand the style or appeal to them...you see, they had this Greek Key pattern:


Well fast forward 20 years later and I would now KILL to have these couches...I mean, how fabulous are these?!  Le sigh...it has simply prompted me to search out my favorite Greek Key patterns over in Pinterest land!  :)








Love the Greek Key stockings...perfect for Christmas this year!  :)

What do you think of the Greek Key pattern?  Would you incorporate it into your home?

  1. We totally had the "fancy" living room too... it had our piano and was really just the annual Christmas tree room, ha... Except our couch was late 70s/early 80s orange crushed velvet ugh, and the carpet and walls were peach!! My mom redid it in the 90s with WHITE couches, WHITE carpet and seafoam walls and accents.. it really became untouchable.

  17. Such a classy pattern. I remember when I was young my best friend at school had three lounges in her house and I loved when we got to go into the "fancy" one to watch videos! Hah.
