shape up your home

Posted by lorrainelea on Apr 16, '15

This year, geometric shapes are absolutely everywhere in home décor. A retro revival from the 80’s, this edgy trend has influenced everything from kitchen tiling to living room rugs.

Add a pop to any room with the addition of bold shapes like triangles, trapeziums and pyramids. They are intriguing, captivating and will bring a sense of modernity to your space.

Not just a fad for the fashion forward, the geometric look can be achieved by the everyday home decorator with just a bit of selective mixing and matching. Try the trend in your home with these simple styling tips…

Add angles to the bedroom. By adding a bold geometric quilt cover to your bedroom, you can drastically change the look and feel of the space. Check out the diverse range Lorraine Lea offer - there are so many colours and styles to choose from and you can be as reserved or out there as you like.

Modern mirror. Most mirrors are oval, rectangle or square, but you will also be able to find frames with intricate angle patterns, scalloped edges and criss-cross inlays. Both functional and decorative, the addition of a large mirror will make your room look miraculously larger.

Decorator Accents. An easy and affordable way to have fun with shapes is by introducing some decorator cushions. Repeating circles, squares and geometric patterns can add eye-catching vigor to a couch or bed.

Bright idea. Step away from the boring ceiling light and try something a little more three dimensional. Angular lighting comes in a variety of shapes and forms. Use these interesting lamps, hanging pendants and light shades to add stylish sophistication without being over-the-top.

Wall art. Geometric wallpaper adds rhythm and interest to the bath or living room. This on-trend addition can be used as a feature wall, or can be contrasted by other shapely objects around the room. For a cost effective and easy alternative, try using wall stickers and attention-grabbing artwork to dramatically change a space.

TIP: Distribute the geo-pattern evenly from floor to ceiling with a floor rug, a hanging light, mirror or cushion. The trick is to get an even spread.
