Geometry 102- Quatrefoil

Drape Style
Another geometric pattern. 
Quatrefoil, meaning 4 leaves. 

I was happy to find my own quatrefoil pattern in a rug for my foyer.
 I wouldn't mind having an entire floor of it.
 Look what Courtney from A Little Glass Box created.
Simply fabulous!



From floor to ceiling, this pattern is lovely!

Circa Lighting

 Outside too.

I'm so far behind on commenting. Please be patient as I catch up with everyone. Last week we had a delightful surprise when my aunt, uncle, cousin and her hubby came and visited for a couple of days while traveling the East Coast on vacation. It was a wonderful two days of story telling, reminiscing and relaxing. Isn't it nice to let everything go and just be with the people you love?

I love quatrefoil patterns. You really have some great photos. I have been thinking about using quatrefoil fabric on the sink skirt in my laundry room...we'll see! (I am behind on blog visits little time!) Have a great day!

Andrea said...

I love this pattern! I was just admiring a bed at Restoration Hardware that has this design.

Laura@happyroost said...

Pretty! Never had any idea what the name of that pattern was called :)


Kelly said...

Beautiful rug! And now I know the name of that pattern!

Heather said...

Your rug is fabulous! I love quatrefoil patterns too...and now, thanks to you, I know their name!

Love all of these. I have the Circa flush mount in my daughter's room. Such a pretty design.

Gina said...

I love all those pretty quatrefoil images, although I don't believe I own anything with this pattern. Hmmm...I might need to get on that right away. :D

This is my vision for my half bath off my kitchen. Right now it's argyle wallpaper with a golfer border. Don't laugh...I'm not kidding. Probably a project for this summer. Glad you had fun with your family. No one deserves it more. Have a good week and DO NOT worry about the commenting!

Lovely pattern.. I did not know the name, either...
Glad you had a blessed time with your family.. Nothing like it...
Take care...

Oh my, that patio is dreamy. I could sit there all day...and night. ;) Love the pattern.
Thank you for stopping by, Tammy. It's always good to see your name pop up.
Much love,

Yes, absolutely! How great to have relatives come by... I would have been late with blog comments too.

Your new rug is stunning! Courtney's shelving display is creative too.

Thanks for the lesson on quatrefoil. Never heard of it but recognize the pattern! I'm glad you had your visitors and had a great time! I love having houseguests!

Anita said...

It seems I learn something new every time I visit! I've probably seen quatrefoil, but surely didn't know its name.

It's looks great in your foyer.

I also like the picture of the bedroom featuring it on the headboard.

Cindy said...

I'm so glad you had company and yes, it is very nice just to forget the world around you and just enjoy loved ones.
Your foyer rug is lovely, I adore the two chairs that you have in there, too.
Geometric patterns are nice, I've never used them, though. Perhaps because they fit in with my cottage decor real well. But, I saw a gorgeous yellow hounds tooth lamp shade on a blog yesterday that would fit in my home very well.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
Love and hugs, Cindy

Love this design and will admit that I did not know the name "Quatrefoil" -- Please just move me into that outdoor kitchen/dining space!!

Blogging will wait, but life does not... glad that you enjoyed your family.

Your rug is beautiful! I have quatrefoil tile in my entry hall.

Love this pattern. You were lucky to find a rug for your foyer in it. I love your foyer!

It's frustrating when you find the rug of your dreams and you want that pattern to be your carpet but that pattern didn't exist. This happens to me all the time.
