Geometric Shapes add Movement and Energy to Home Decor

Window Treatments in Milwaukee

For a refreshing change in your decor, think outside the box.

When purchasing home design elements, most of us tend to focus on square and rectangular shapes and surfaces. But think about some of the most ancient decorating styles used by the Greeks and Romans and other cultures; they include a lot more than just your average squares and rectangles. Go on, think outside of the box for more interesting and exciting decor style.

How about triangles, hexagons, trapezoids, and parallelograms for starters. Oh wait, do you even remember what some of these shapes are? Maybe it’s time for a refresher course in high school geometry so we can begin to spice up your home decorating. But let’s not forget to add diamonds, chevrons, zig-zags, stars, and crescents to the equation.

Here are some geometric shape elements and patterns to add to your decor:

  • Beware of too much geometry; a little goes a long way at perking up a room. Too much can become chaotic. Geometric patterns can look modern, retro or thoroughly traditional, depending on their style, color and design. And they can range from the superwix subtle to ultra bold in look.

Add geometric shapes to your interior design plan. It’s an angle that works!
