I’ve never been good at math. Any kind of math class… let’s just say it wasn’t my cup of tea. However, when it came to my high school geometry class, that was a little more my style. I loved learning about the different shapes and how they work together, lines, angles, formulas… I was all there. Then came calculus. Enough said, right? Yeah, my not-so-good relationship with math class picked right up where we left off.
Recently I’ve been working on a few geometric-inspired prints for our Etsy store. The more I work on them, the more I’ve been noticing geometric designs in random, everyday things. Since we like to let you guys in on what’s going on in our heads, I thought it would be fun to put together a post with some of my favorite geometric-inspired spaces I’ve come across lately on Pinterest. Ahh, the power of Pinterest.
In this mid-century modern room geometric shapes clearly define the overall theme. Even though there are a lot of shapes going on, it doesn’t seem too busy. Image Pinned here.
The first thing that caught my eye in this comfy reading nook is the geometric mirror. Actually, this would be a pretty simple DIY project (just paint a few pre-cut pieces of molding and attach them to an existing mirror with adhesive). The shapes in the mirror mimic the shapes on the gray and white pillow. Image Pinned here.
I’m all about using wallpaper in small bathrooms. Even though you’d think it would make the room feel totally claustrophobic, wallpaper has the potential to make small spaces feel like a little jewel box of detail. This bathroom is a perfect example. Image Pinned here.
I love the combination of the weathered geometric artwork and the sleek teal ceramic lamp. The stack of books is a great way to bring home the pink, teal, white, and yellow color combination. Love it all! Image Pinned here.
This one is a little more on the light and airy side, but this is another great geometric wallpaper. The lines of the door windows really bring out the square shapes in the wallpaper design. Image Pinned here.
I love how the designers of this back yard used every inch of this long, narrow space to make a statement. The square “zones” of shrubbery mixed with the placement of the stone pavers make this backyard space a geometric shape-lover’s dream. Image Pinned here.
I used to fall in the rut of “oh my goodness, bedding has to match perfectly”. But lately, I’m all about mixing and matching, as long as the sheets are white. That’s still one of my must-haves. Anyway, this bedding is the perfect example of a mix match combo that works. First of all, you’ve got the fun combo of orange, green, and blue. Then, the geometric patterns add variation and texture to the already-unique color combination. Image Pinned here.
Greg and I are both big fans of this bedroom. We love how the vertical lines make the room seem so much taller. There are a lot of rectangles and squares going on but it all seems to come together perfectly. Image Pinned here.
Obviously, I couldn’t round up my favorite geometric-inspired spaces without at least one nod to the popular chevron pattern. This massive rug is to die for, right?! There are many things I love about this lofty dining room… the geometric ceiling details, the clean dining table along with the fun Jonathan Adler accents, the modern swivel chairs… Okay, I love it all. Greg pointed out that he likes the two huge globe lights and the symmetrically placed trees on either side of the window. I guess this room is a perfect mix of our tastes. Image Pinned here.
So, what about you? Do you dig geometric shapes in home decor?
