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
I love the bright colors and the contrasting raw wood on this honeycomb feature wall from Vintage Revivals.
This jewel-toned geometic feature wall via The Room Edit is wallpapered, but with lots of tape, patience and geometry, you could paint a similar design a wall in your home. (Photo credit Paul Raeside for Livingetc.)
When decorating with geometrics, you don't have to follow any set pattern. Random geometric patterns, like this one from The Interiors Addict, can be really interesting and pretty.
