Geometric Trends in the Home
While 2020 is gearing up to be more calm on the color front with Classic Blue being the color of the year and neutral tones to accent, you can still experiment with bold patterns to break up what may seem like a bland palette.
Bold prints are predicted to still be around in 2020, so geometric patterns are one of the best ways to keep that boldness. Geometrics have staying power as far as trends go and it’s easy to find them in a variety of colors to match what works best in your home. Don’t be afraid to go big with prints, but sparingly. Think large accent rugs in the bedroom or living room to break up a neutral palette.
Geometric prints can be used in small, subtle ways as well. A framed print composed of neutral tones can stand out in a sophisticated way. This is the perfect way to bring some intrigue to the home without going overboard on larger pieces.
Accessories that can easily be changed out with current trends are another good use of geometric patterns in your home. If you’re not ready to commit to something as permanent and expensive as a large rug or wallpaper, consider a few throw pillows or blankets. Items like this tend to be swapped out seasonally anyway, so why not try a new print just for fun? Other small items such as centerpiece boxes, vases, or tea towels are a quick way to introduce something new and unique.
Don’t be afraid to mix geometrics with other soft patterns such as watercolors. A geometric patterned rug under a couch with watercolor throw pillows is an unexpected pairing that will bring a little fun to your interior design.
Whether you bring out new prints in a small way or larger, you’re bound to have fun experimenting with these trends. Let the new year be a time of change and fun, and don’t be afraid to be bold in your home!
