TThe decorative style evolved from Byzantine depictions of leaves and vines to Islamic art and architecture consisting of elaborate interlacing scrolls, geometric patterns, vegetation and calligraphy.
Arabesque floral designs are repeating patterns featuring of vines and "half-palmettes" which were a familiar motif in Egyptian architecture. These more ornate floral designs are used for Bohemian or boho chic to give an international flair.
