Style All Keyed Up

Get ready to go Greek with a revival of the timeless key motif. Symbolizing

the eternal flow of things, the Meandros (meander) carries that philosophy into home accents as one of the most eternal, and popular, leitmotivs in design. Here, the context is a bit retro and distinctly groove-laden, but perfectly encapsulates the elusive quality of being both classic and modern.

All prices are suggested retail.

Native North Carolinian Tracy Bulla has been Home Accents Today's product editor since 2002. As a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Journalism, Tracy's first foray into reporting involved covering the financial markets. This short-lived enterprise resulted in no great loss to the world of finance when it became apparent that the reporter could not balance her own checkbook. Tracy then followed her lifelong passion for fashion into the glamorous world of design where she is continuously in thrall to the lure of beautiful, well-designed objects of desire. Lo, Tracy's pampered Pekingese, shares her appreciation for exquisite style by choosing to only chew up the most expensively embellished Italian shoes.
