Bold Geometry + How to Make it Work For You

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Art Deco influenced elements have become popular in design again, and you won’t find any complaints here. Our favorite trait that seems to be typical of this period’s style is the avid use of geometry. We love the thought of getting bold with angular patterns. There’s really no better way to do this than by using a wallpaper or tile as your vehicle to get there.

Here’s 4 ways you can make a geometric pattern work in your space:

Add in natural elements.

Natural elements that pair well with angular patterns are wood, stones like marble and agate and even fibrous materials like jute and seagrass. Adding greenery can do the trick also. These help make a geometric pattern feel a little less like something you’d find in an airport bathroom.

Juxtapose with rounded edges.

If you’re working with sharp lines, a general rule of thumb is to strike a balance by incorporating curved or rounded edges.

Use warm metals.

Brassy metals instantly infuse warmth into a space. This is helpful in a room that has a ton of geometric lines since too many angles (in any space) can come off as cold and a bit sterile.

Get monochromatic.

Working with a singular color is the easiest way to make a heavily patterned floor or wallpaper work in your home. This leaves little room for error since you’re taking a more parred down approach.
