St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner, and while I don’t generally celebrate the day or do anything out of the ordinary, it doesn’t hurt to spread some wishes of good luck around this time!

Oh, St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve never been into the ol’ St. Patrick’s Day parties, and around these parts, the university kids pretty much go wild, it’s all very chaotic, and I think it’s bizarre (yeah, yeah, bah humbug).
At the St. Jacobs market last weekend, I couldn’t resist buyingÂ a sweet shamrock plant for only $2 (!). It’s just so delicate. I can totally get behind St. Patrick’s Day green when it’s as pretty as this!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! May the day be a lucky one for you!
Okay, so I know St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner and green-themed parties, foods, and decorations are dominating Pinterest and blogs, but around here, the greenÂ stays far away.Â While I wouldn’t paint my walls green, I do love greenery in my home. I absolutely love having living plants in every room around my home. If I lived in the French countryside (yeah, if), I’d definitely try to have a green house. I’d probably call it a conservatory or a garden room (look at all of these beautiful conservatories).

Okay, I’m now off topic. Let’s get back to what I really want to talk about today: quatrefoil. The quatrefoil is a four-leaf symbol that we see a lot in artÂ andÂ architecture. It was most popular in the gothic and renaissance eras (read more here).Â I’ve gathered some photos of quatrefoil products and gorgeous interiors with quatrefoil details.

In case you haven’t heard, St. Patrick’s day is just around the corner – as in tomorrow – and while many people may opt for green beer this weekend, I’m more of a fan of the longer-lasting items below. A diamond ring – yes please! A cool clover chair – I see you! And a couple sweet clover-y tables – what an easy way to bring some good luck into your home.
