Balance your color scheme
The golden rule when picking the perfect geometric pattern for your interior is to consider your existing color scheme and pick a pattern that compliments and enhances that room. You are looking for something that adds instant visual interest, so choose carefully the number of colors you use or a room may start to feel cluttered.
Colorful geometric patterns are ideal for energizing neutral living spaces. A plain couch can, for example, be brightened with an injection of color from a cheerful set of geometric throw pillows such as these color stripes decorative throw pillows.
Similarly a colorful and fun tablecloth like this tetris design can be an instant and affordable solution to modernizing a more traditional kitchen or dining table.
Pick out the right pattern
Secondly you need to consider the size of the pattern and find something that is not so large it overwhelms the size of the space or is so small that it is barely noticeable.
Patterns can easily be overwhelming if overused so take time to find a piece that enhances but doesn't dominate the space. Design elements can be easily lost in a crowded room. Successful geometric home decor is all about providing a room with a feature, which brings visual balance.
Decide how to use the pattern
Thirdly, decide early on which design features of the room you want to choose for your patterned pieces. Wall decor and accent elements such as patterned throw pillows are very popular and you can completely change the look and feel of a room by adding these playful pops of color.
If you want to make more of a statement, you could also think about geometric patterns over larger spaces in your home such as this multi color dot rug. A rug can modernize your floors and change the feel of a room in an instant without breaking the bank.
Most importantly take time to choose a pattern that you love. Geometric Home Decor not only energizes homes but also the people within. It is a fabulously uplifting trend that brings joy and an element of fun to even the most neutral of spaces.
