Dare I say it? I’m over chevron. Okay, not completely over it; I still love it but in small doses. I’m over the everything-in-your-nursery chevron. Plus, I kind of feel like I’m cheating on chevron at the moment anyway. My latest obsession? A quatrefoil nursery.
The quatrefoil comes in a variety of styles—round, with or without corners, thick, thin…you name it! It’s starting to pop up everywhere! So, let me introduce you to my new friend. I promise, you’ll be quick friends too.
I fell in love with this wall the moment I saw it in the project gallery!
Accent your favorite piece of furniture with it, like this quatrefoil bookcase!
I’m drooling over this quatrefoil ceiling. Imagine it in two-tone colors! LOVE!
Here’s some quatrefoil nursery art and a monogram all in one!
Even a standalone quatrefoil is stunning! I’m pretty sure this quatrefoil painted dresser belongs in my daughter’s room.
So there it is, my new BFF. Happy quatrefoiling!

Is this last one a quaterfoil too? From what I know, quatrefoil is a four-petal flower.
So this is called a quatrefoil pattern. I used to just call this Moroccan-style pattern because I see many Moroccan design elements using this kind of pattern.
Love that standalone and embellished one on the pink dresser!
I love quatrefoil, but only in small doses. Nothing huge and dominant, like walls and rugs. Those in frames and artworks will do.
I love it too! I’m finishing up a nursery in NY with grey quatrefoil wall paper. So chic indeed!
