INTERIOR TRENDS: with Amanda Niell
Logical Attracts Geometrics!
Geometrics are up-trending this year. Amanda Neill, leading Auckland interior design talks the trend and why it’s here to stay.
Geometrics are everywhere right now. The term ‘geometric prints’ includes hexagons, polyhedrons, circles and zigzags. These shapes may appear modern and futuristic but it’s a trend that has established itself over time and through history, as both the Moroccans and Ancient Greeks used geometric patterns in their interior design and architecture.
Geometry is all about rules, people who embrace rationality, logic and organisation often feel drawn to such patterns.
If you are looking for a quick way to update your space why not use the trend in its recent form by way of décor and soft furnishings, cushions, rugs, fabrics, window treatments etc.
Geometrics and the trend have now evolved into a more permanent feature in interior design and are now appearing in tiles, wallpaper, wall features, lighting and much more. To really bring your space right up to date, why not incorporate metallic or use one of the softer summer shades of pastel.
When using geometrics in the home it’s important to get the balance right - using too many layers will create a lack of harmony in the space. An easy way to use the trend is to focus on one central piece to feature the print - a sofa, rug or feature wall using wallpaper or tiles. If you would like to incorporate Geometrics into your home come and see us at Designworx to make this trend come to life.
Enjoy! Amanda and the Designworx team.
