Geometric Shapes Can Add Movement and Energy

3 Feb

Geometric1Geometric shapes can add movement and energy to your rooms.

Think outside the box for a refreshing change of decor.
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, 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 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 flooringGeometric2
  • Rugs and carpeting
  • Wallcoverings and draperies
  • Upholstery fabric
  • Bed and table linens
  • Throw pillows
  • Dishware
  • Mirrors
  • Inlays on wood furniture
  • Light fixtures
  • Painted wall stencils
  • And even the architectural elements of your home, such as door panels, window panes and brickwork
    patterns

Geometric3Beware of too much geometry; a little goes a long way at perking up a room. Too much can become chaotic. Geometric patterns can look modern, retro or thoroughly traditional, depending on their style, color and design. And they can range from the superwix subtle to ultra bold in look.
Add geometric shapes to your interior design plan. It’s an angle that works!

THE CLUB CRUCIAL ELEMENTS: An upholstered, roomy armchair with extra-deep seats, perfect for curling up with a book. WHERE TO USE: In pairs making up a cozy nook or as the ideal companion alongside a living room sofa. MOST LIKELY TO: Have leather upholstery or nail-head trim (or both).

Accent Chair2THE SLIPPER CRUCIAL ELEMENTS: Armless and upholstered with a petite silhouette and a seat that’s likely closer to the ground than you’re used to.
