Trend Alert: Key Patterns

Though it has its origins in ancient Greece, the key pattern is a very modern-looking motif, and the decoration is particularly ubiquitous at this very moment. Jonathan Adler is rather obsessed with the pattern, using it to add a chic vibe to rugs and other accents, such as the Greek Key Crewel Pillow ($58, above left).

It seems you guys like this look too: CiaoBella recently found these sleek window shades with a key pattern, and Ginasugar bookmarked West Elm's wall art version ($29 to $99, above right). There are seemingly hundreds of examples in stores right now, so to see my favorites, click on the photos below.

I like the shades but I'd hang them on the wall instead of in front of the window.

Even though its actually Greek, I thought it added a nice touch in an Asian inspired room I created a list for. And the screen and the rug are great. I walk past a Jonathan Adler store everyday on my way to work... he has some really great ideas.

I like it- like the first pillow with the gold key and the W-S napkins are nice. I know people (Greek of course) who go overboard, but it can be done tastefully.

I really do like this pattern, it's not TOO much, but it's funky enough to get compliments with!
