Jan 04, 2018

2017 has seen an abundance of daring interior trends, and geometrics are making waves once more. This trend is all about tastefully balancing colours, prints and textures so they seamlessly enhance one another. Here’s how to make this chic motif work for your space.

Less is more

A good rule of thumb is to always keep it simple. Geometric patterns can create a striking and sometimes, intense ambience – which is why it’s best to start small. Incorporating small accessories such as the handmade Refraction and Lotan cushion cover or Medina Ceramic Coaster Nador is an easy, non-committal way to add a touch of vibrance to your living space.

Colour coordination

Choosing the right mix of colours is key to achieving your desired impact. A colored marble table top, such as the Hexagon Nesting Side Table Set adds just the right pop of color needed to bring your space to life.

Avoid structured patterns

While repetitive, structured patterns may offer a contemporary vibe, they can also make a space seem busy and cluttered. Why not pick a mix of subdued concentric patterns to help anchor your décor – the Nisar Cushion Cover and Betsy Occasional Chair are great, subtle ways to mix print.

Add statement wall pieces

Another simple trick is to add statement decorative pieces that instantly create depth and add personality to bare walls. Try the Geo II Paper Art Work in your dining area or living room to give them an effortless hint of sophistication.

Use floral arrangements to balance geometric designs

If you already have existing geometric embellishments in your space, floral arrangements are fabulous ways to lend them a warm and welcoming touch. Layering elegant blooms like the Pink Rose & Camellia Arrangement or Calla Lilly Arrangement against geometric prints present a wow factor, making them great conversation pieces to get your guests talking.

Geometry comes in all sorts of shapes, textures and patterns, meaning you don’t have to completely redesign your home to add a touch of this season’s trend into your interior. For more ideas to incorporate geometric designs into your home, visit our store.
