What's Your Global Interior Design Style? Greek

What is Your Global Design Style? Greek

Your style is simple and elegant, inspired by nature, and looks light, bright, airy and clean. You like lots of white with beautiful vivid blue, green, fuchsia and gold accents, and a clean, de-cluttered, rustic look. You like your space to be simple, symmetrical, classical, and relaxing. Less is more. Greek style is similar to coastal styles in many of it’s elements.

These lamps are the perfect shades of blue typically used in this style and the first two use colorful glass.



These pillows also have a global feel and are great shades of blue for Greek design. These would be perfect on white or off white sofas or chairs.

I selected this pillow because of the colors and the design, all about the ocean.The pillow below is the perfect color to represent the bougainvillea, a plant originating from South America that lives and flourishes in the Cyclades Islands and other places in Greece.
This rug has a perfect combination of colors to represent the sea and the outdoors.                                                                                                                                                                                  This rug below is the perfect shade of blue, and incorporates stripes, often a common pattern in Greek design.The table below uses the Greek key pattern, and has soft rather than angular lines.

This chair has Greek key maple veneer inlays surround the sides and the back. The gracefully arched back legs roll up into a simple scroll carving at the top. The white fabric has a clean simple look that will contrast beautifully with all the blues in the rugs, pillows, art and accessories.

This large blue hand blown glass Olive Bottle is the perfect shade of blue and olive trees and olive oil bottles are one of the key elements in this design style. This mirror uses the Greek key pattern and soft lines in it’s design.                                 

The two pieces of art below incorporate natural elements, shades of blue, references to the ocean in the second piece containing sea fans and would look great together because of their similar shapes.
