Greek it!

In the first of his "Monthly Musings" last month, designer Jonathan Adler who noted that he personally loves Doric columns, suggested ways classicism could doll up your pad. "... busts are great presents, perfect for tablescaping and add instant grandeur," he said. The designer is also a fan of Greek key, that chain pattern you see meandering around rugs, over pillows and linens from Williams-Sonoma Home.

We're wild about Wisteria's terracotta lady, which can be used as a home accent or garden ornament in warm weather. Place pedestals, urns and columns from Jamali Garden around the yard to instantly elevate your outdoor space to classical cool.

Finally, track the trend for classy neoclassic in the Georgetown Design House in Basha White's living room (see those Klismos chairs?) and Frank Babb Randolph's entryway.
