Although my family’s restaurant is distinctly Italian, I, on the other hand, am Greek, as is a large part of my family. Together, we manage to fulfill numerous stereotypes about Greek-Americans, one manicotti at a time.
For years, I resisted my Greekness, trying to “fit in” with the Smiths and Walkers of the world, never quite succeeding. As I have gotten older, I’ve grown to embrace the differences that make me unique. Although I won’t be hanging a Greek flag from my front porch anytime soon, I will be incorporating more Greek inspired decor into my home!

While the Greek key dates back to ancient times, its use here looks modern and fresh with pops of green against an otherwise neutral color palette.
I think it’s tasteful and stunning!
And for the thrill seekers:
The blue rug ties in with the yellow benches and artwork to create a decidedly bold look! I kinda dig it.
This is the everyday china pattern I chose for my bridal registry.
How fabulous is that handle on the teacup? You should see the photo shoot of me with the matching gravy boat. It’s too cute (the gravy boat…) Some people pose with pets and loved ones, I pose with dinnerware.
And finally, to combine my love for the Greek key with my love for a good sale, check out this bikini! I added this to my cart too many times to count.
If you feel like embracing your inner goddess, I suggest snapping one up!
Any fellow Greek key lovers out there? I am very curious to know how you incorporate the pattern into your home and wardrobe!
