Take inspiration from the goddesses and architecture of ancient Greece and give your home a regal update.

Ancient Greece has been a source of inspiration for many things. From literature to art, music and style, the time period continues to influence many of us today, particularly within our homes.

After all, who doesn’t love tall columns, stone statues, voluptuous Grecian busts and drapery? The style so closely associated with this time in history still works in any minimalist or maximalist space – and there’s something magical and mystical about it that we’re loving today.

Etsy trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson explains that ancient mythology is inspiring plenty of the homeware sellers on the platform, and we’ll let you into a little secret – we’ve seen this popping up elsewhere on the interiors scene, too.

“The ancient accents trend takes cues from interiors found in ancient Roman and Greek times – from columns to statues to busts – and it’s being seen everywhere from wall art to planters in a modern colour palette,” Johnson explains.

From Instagram brands like Maza to big names such as Artisanti, it seems like everyone is using tales of mythology as inspiration. To make it easy for you to get in on the action, we’ve collated some of our favourite pieces below to update your home with now.

    Ancient Greece-themed homeware: Maza Athena pink

    Maza is the cool candle brand on the interior scene, tapping into the much-coveted trend of waxy sculptural shapes in pastel colours that are far too pretty to burn. 

    The Athena candle comes in various shades including this pretty pink hue and is perfect for balancing atop coffee table books.
