Shape Up for Spring 2016!

Posted on: March 1st, 2016 by jfdadmin No Comments

What’s one of the hottest trends for Spring 2016? Geometric shapes!

When it comes to adding visual interest to a room, there’s no easier way to make an impact than by adding a few geometric shapes.  The best thing about this trend is that it can easily be incorporated into any style of design.

Those who like an ultra-modern look can make a big statement with geometric furniture pieces or light fixtures. For those who prefer a more traditional look, simply incorporate a geometric pattern into the room using tiles, textiles or accent pieces.

The geometric trend is the perfect way to give your interior a refreshing look and can be made up of lines and shapes such as squares, triangles and hexagons, which are repeated in a symmetrical layout.

Layout is key when it comes to the geometric look. Make one piece, perhaps a wall or rug, in a geometric print a focal point. Hexagonals are this year’s favorite shape and graphic hexagonal tiles, in an unusual honeycomb pattern, can create an eye-catching floor or splashback, especially if teamed with a bold color.  Honeycomb, fish scale and herringbone patterns are simple, calming and clean.

You can even try combining different colors and scales of one or, at most, two shapes, to create a unique interior.  This style can give rooms an illusion of space and add depth and interest.  Whatever you choose to do, have fun with it!

Happy March!

Love and lacquer,
