Energetic and lively geometric patterns have been used successfully through the decades for interior design. From the geometric forms in the Arts & Crafts, Art Deco, the swinging 60’s to name but a few of the gorgeous patterns that have brought colour and character to our homes. This season is no exception as geometrics have been highlighted on the fashion cat-walks which means they’re also to be found within the latest interior design trends. With purple being one of this season’s hottest colours the use of purple and geometric patterns makes a winning combination that will suit all styles of homes.
Using geometrics has to be carried out carefully and deliberately otherwise a room can be too confusing and difficult for the eye to focus and find a focal point – this overload also means that you’ll be uncomfortable rather than relaxed in your own home.
The key is to use both the colour and the pattern as accents or feature. In bedrooms duvets sets in purple with a repeat geometric pattern looks chic and stylish against plain walls. In contrast you could choose plain bedding and use the colour and pattern for scatter cushions, rugs, curtains or blinds made from purple fabric with a geometric pattern.
Which ever colour shade you go with the geometric pattern can be in the background or forefront, depending on how eye-catching you wish the pattern to be. The flexibility and versatility means that there’s a purple geometric to suit all styles of interiors and homes.
As we’ve already discussed the use of purple can be the deep, rich bold colours associated with royalty, opulence and grandeur while the pale lavender tones are perfect for a quintessentially English country cottage styled interior.
