Greek Interior Design is simple and elegant, inspired by nature, and looks light, bright, airy and clean.  Imagine lots of white with beautiful vivid blue, green, fuchsia and gold accents, and a clean, de-cluttered, rustic look, Designs tend to be simple, symmetrical, classical, and relaxing. Less is more.

Greek style is an example of global style Interior Design. Global Style Interior Design is all about telling the story of your life and adventures through your decor. Each piece has a story and becomes a conversation starter.  Treasures, old and new are displayed from various parts of the world and layered in a rich tapestry of color, texture, art and history.

Here is an example of an Edesign I created using the typical Greek color palette of whites and blues with fuscia accents. The design highlights the Greek key pattern in the rug, arched windows, white washed walls, columns, colorful glass lamps and simple furniture. It highlights my unique fractal art, the “Sea” collection which works wonderfully with Greek design because of the color and connection with nature and the sea which is also prevalent in Greek design.

To get the look, you could go all out and incorporate all the elements of Greek Interior Design, or you can add some key elements to your existing decor.

Try  lamps, pillows or rugs incorporating varying shades of blue reflecting the colors of the sea and the sky typically used in this style. Incorporate art using shades of blue that have natural elements related to plants or the sea. Try furniture, accessories or rugs with the Greek key pattern.

Let's Create Your Global Style Design

Are you ready for your house to go to the next level where your house looks great, feels great and supports you to be great? Imagine that. 

What’s it like when you are living in the perfect space for you?

My philosophy of great Interior Design, which I call Aligned Design, considers three key factors; art, science and energy. The intersection of the three is where the magic happens.

Creating a space that envelops you in your vision of beauty and  color, while fine tuning the energy of your space to promote wealth, health, love and perfect self-expression aligns you with the universe, allowing you to live your best life so you can make a positive impact on the world. 

Global style Interior Design is part of the art of great design and one of things you are really going to love about creating the perfect space for you.

  1. This is such a classic enduring style you have outlined, Mary Ann! Greek style always makes me think of the Mediterranean coast with sparkling blue water and sunwashed white buildings – sooo appealing when it is gray and cold and winter here right now!

  2. Those windows are so pretty, Mary Ann! Thanks for an informative post!

    1. I’m so glad! Blue is definitely a peaceful color that connects with nature and with our souls on so many levels.

  3. Great post! I’m a little embarrassed to think that I never thought about the design style of beautiful Greece. Well, I’m thinking about it now, thanks to you!

    1. Thank you so much and glad I inspired you to think about Greek style, considering how beautiful it is:)
