Trend: Geometric Prints

Contemporary geometric prints are a fantastic interior addition for 2013. The fresh take on this pattern incorporates using bold and vivid colours and designs. This has completely revitalised the trend and makes it appear to be a completely new style. Not only this, but it is perfect for summer when bright colours and revitalisation comes to the fore.

Nonetheless, despite the fresh impetus, graphic patterns have been around since ancient times. Countries, such as Greece and Morocco,  are widely associated with the print. Thus, you don’t need to go down the vibrant route if you don’t want to or if it does not fit in with the style of the room in question. In fact, you can go for earthy tones and play to the traditional quality of the print instead.

But how do you introduce this trend into your room? The truth is that there are lots of ways you can incorporate a geometric print into any space. If you really want to embrace this trend then you can go all out by creating a feature wall containing a large geometric print – either via wallpaper or a piece of wall art. The print will be extremely striking and thus the trend will dominate the room.

Using a large geometric wallpaper on all walls can easily give you a headache in rooms where relaxation is supposed to be important – such as a living space. If you want to wallpaper all walls in these areas then you should instead use smaller patterns and more conservative colours.

Alternatively, there are ways you can incorporate this trend in a subtler manner. For instance, you can opt for photo frames, rugs or cushions boasting this type of pattern.

In fact, something as simple as buying mugs in a geometric design and placing them on your kitchen counter can work to great effect.

These highlights work well because geometric prints are eye-catching in themselves so you can rest assured that these suggestions will not get overlooked or become hidden when surrounded by the rest of your decor.
