Quatrefoil in My Quarters

I love the versatility of the quatrefoil motif.  With its Gothic roots, it works beautifully in traditional decor, yet its geometric sensibility makes it appropriate for more transitional or contemporary spaces as well.  I've used the quatrefoil in my home for mirrors, home accents, and rugs as you'll see in the images below:

  1. I can't decide between the "tini table" and the Alexandra chair for my living room, but I think both would be perfect. I also love those sconces!

  2. That CarolinaEclectic bathroom looks like something you would enter and never, ever want to leave.

  3. I had no idea what this pattern was called, but I love it! Thank you for telling us the name so I can now search for it! I would like one of everything you posted. Please and thank you. ;)

  4. Many thanks for featuring our `tini table! We love everything you selected and find our favorite shape everywhere as well!

  5. I love the quatrefoil image. I'm in the process of redecorating my living room and will be using it (I've already reupholstered an antique chair with black and white quatrefoil. Thanks for the great ideas!
