Update Your Space: Geometric Gems

Geometric shapes are showing up everywhere this year for home styling. The beauty of this home trend is that you can really apply it to anything. Walls or wallpaper,tiles on the floor, mirrors, accessories, cushions…you dream it,you can do it.

We particularly love chevron flooring or chevron prints on cushions, for a bold, graphic look. This season though, the geometric injection is all about how you can pare it down, to fit into most genres of styling.

So how to add a touch of geometric gems into your home?

There are ways to fit this trend into your home regardless of budget- from penny pinching DIY ideas to full on furniture additions.

Try a new rug. Keep your room as is, but choose a bold, graphic rug in a colour palette that suits. On trend choices for this year include circles, zig zags, colour or chevron.

Pillows, throws or cushions. Try a bold colour cushion, or a fun printed throw. Cushions come in heaps of sizes- and you can buy to suit your space. Make sure not to overwhelm your original pieces, but you can have fun even mixing andmatching some different prints and colours on cushions for a unique look.

Wallpaper and art. A whole room might be a bit much, so why not try a feature wall in a printed wallpaper. Or even try some framed prints to add touches of pattern around the home.

Mirrors. You can find mirrors these days with cool geometric patterns or even a touch of art deco influences. Or you couldtry something more simple and hang a few geometrically shaped mirrors (i.e perfect circles) in an interesting layout.

Accessories. Think vases, chandeliers, plates, photoframes, the list is endless.

    Geometric shapes just make my eyes cross. Don’t like them much.

    Not a big fan of geometric shapes. Too modern looking.
