Geometric Shapes and Patterns Add Movement and Energy

When most of us purchase home elements, we tend to focus on square and rectangular shapes and surfaces. Yet consider some of the most ancient decorating styles used by the Greeks, Romans and other cultures; they include lots more than just squares and rectangles! Try thinking out of the box for more interest and excitement in your decorating style.

Triangles, hexagons, trapezoids, and parallelograms: Who even remembers what some of these shapes are? Maybe now’s the time for a refresher course in high school geometry to spice up your home décor. And don’t forget to add circles, diamonds, chevrons, zig zags and stars to the equation.

Add geometric shapes and patterns to your décor with these home elements:

- Table tops and table bases
- Tile and wood flooring
- Rugs and carpeting
- Wallpaper and draperies
- Upholstery fabric
- Bed and table linens
- Throw pillows
- Light fixtures
- Painted wall stencils

Consider also the architectural elements of your home, such as door panels, windowpanes and brickwork patterns.

Geometric patterns can look modern, retro or thoroughly traditional, depending on their style, color and design. And they can range from the very subtle to ultra bold in look.

Beware of too much geometry though; a little goes a long way at perking up a room. Too much can become chaotic, unless you keep the color scheme uniform.

Add geometric shapes to your interior design plan. It’s an angle that works! For more ideas or for help with your next design project, please contact us.
