Geometry Lessons: Trends in Home Decor

Geometry Lessons: Trends in Home Decor

Posted by DecoArt on Apr 12th 2016

I feel like I owe my high school geometry teacher an apology. Because as much as a grumbled about proofs and theorems, turns out I LOVE geometry... when it's used in decor. And so do a lot of other people. Geometrics are a hot trend in interior design that shows no sign of cooling off.

Circles, squares, triangles, hexagons, modular patterns and more are popping up on floors, furniture, walls, textiles and accessories. Here are some ways to shape up your decor with geometrics.

Geometric Feature Walls
