Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Quatrefoil...it's just fun to say

Well quatre is french for "four" so that is where the quatrefoil gets it shape from. 

According to Wikipedia (a very reliable source)"a quatrefoil is a representation of a flower with four petals, or a leaf with four leaflets (such as a four-leaf clover)"

Although it has been traditionally used in architecture, it has been showing up all over the place!  

I think that my love for this shape stems (pun intended) from the famous Van Cleef Alhambra collection that I have been coveting for years (modeled by the Gossip Girl actress). 


But that leads to many other things...

This lovely mirror...

 
How about these little gems?!


Sheets in my favorite color...

A delicate accent vase...


Oh and this trefoil number...
