The Greeks have long been known for their orders of architecture in their building columns known as Doric, Ionic and Corinthian, their pottery vases and their many types of ornamental motifs. The geometrical motif known as the fret or meander commonly called the Greek key pattern comes from Greece. Grecians borrowed designs from nature in their honeysuckle and antefix motifs. Among their long-lasting contributions are their vases which were ornamental and used in various functions of daily life. Their furniture included ornamental motifs and the chairs had back rails curved in a concave or klismos shape resembling the curve of a human back. The beauty of Greek design is in the attention to graceful beauty and elegant proportion in design.
This is a design I created which was inspired by the painting by Loretta Lux. The paint is by Farrow and Ball, furnishings by Vincente Wolf and Layla Grayce.
This is a traditional style room I designed which was inspired by Pantone's color linen. Most of the furnishings are from Layla Grayce. The gorgeous wallpaper is from Schumacher.
