This year, pattern and prints are definitely back – Visual impact is a key look in interior design at the moment. There are lots of geometric designs, 3D patterns, repeated forms and patterns inspired by nature, like cells and molecules. Geometrics can be in bold colours, like black and white, or strong primary colours. They are also popular in muted pastel colours like pinks and soft blues with grey, as you can see in the rug above.
So how do we use geometrics at home? You can choose a geometric wallpaper like Hick’s Hexagon from Cole and Son:
Alternatively, geometric rugs and cushions are a great way to add this look without redecorating. I really love this lounge in a range of Korla fabrics:
This is an easy look to achieve, as you can add as much or as little as you like. You only need one or two elements because geometrics are so bold.
Will this look date? Well it’s a retro-inspired theme, so it will last as long as our current love of retro and vintage. I also believe black, white and primary colours (blue, red, yellow) never really go out of fashion. If you’re still not sure, just buy some geometric cushions – you can always remove them in 3 years time, providing the dogs and the kids don’t wreck them first! :-)
