You might have thought that once you've passed that abominable geometry class in school, you won't ever again have anything to do with all the squares, triangles, hexagons, cubes, parallelepipeds (yes, that's a real word) ... Until the big geometric home decor trend arrived.
Hautecouture, high street fashion, home textiles, house furnishings, they all feature intricate geometric shapes and abstract forms in pastel and kaleidoscopic colours at the moment. And we're loving it all!
Geometric home decor suits mostly those favouring midcentury modern and Scandinavian design or are looking for an edgy look. Nevertheless, intricate design has always been a staple of eclectic and ethnic bohemian decor. In fact, graphic patterns have been around forever in places such as Greece, Morocco, Moorish Spain. Who doesn't love Moroccan tiles?
But ... if you are not ready for geometric floor tiles or wallpaper, start adding geometric accents to your abode with affordable and easy-to-replace textiles and wall art. Keep in mind: graphic patterns needn't be in bold, loud colours; earthy tones and traditional patterns with beautiful textures and good placement would suit even a more traditional, minimalist or neutral home style.
Still, if you are a complete commitment-phobe when it comes to decorating, or you don't want to invest too much in a rental, art prints is one of the easiest ways to do so. Even for those who are not big on bold vibrant shapes, prints are a fantastic and fresh interior addition that can completely revitalise any home. You can concentrate an eclectic mix of prints onto a feature wall or wall gallery, or just add funky illustrations all over the house.
