So in keeping with the Celtic theme of my last two blog posts, I decided to hunt up some Celtic inspired design elements for interiors. When it comes to Celtic design, it’s all about Celtic knots and spirals. Though some people often get fixated on the meaning of the the knots, there are in fact no specific meanings. The knots and interlaces in Celtic design are thought of as a continuum. There are no beginnings or endings therefore many speculate that this is symbolic of the continuum of faith or life or even love. There is no concrete evidence that this is what the Celts were trying to represent, however I feel personally that it probably did represent a continuum of some spiritual significance. Maybe that’s just the romantic side of me choosing to believe this but it does seem obvious to me. The designs are beautiful and can feel peaceful especially if you take the time to follow the curves with your eyes.
Here is one that I find to be a particularly intriguing idea. Celtic design for a baluster in a staircase. This one is by Heartland Stairways.
I love this Celtic/art nouveau inspired wallpaper by Barbara Hulaniki for Graham and Brown.
