A Collage of Islamic Patterns-Then and Now

Salam everyone! If you have been following my blog, then you would know about my fascination with Islamic patterns, especially the Islamic star pattern [see how I stenciled it on my end table  here ]. For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to see how ancient Islamic patterns are reinterpreted into modern home decor.

Let us begin with that gorgeous Islamic star pattern….
