History shows that trends are cyclical, and what may have been all the rage in the ’80s will re-emerge a few decades later, bringing with it a sense of retro glam. And, as shown by the recent collaborative collection of Eley Kishimoto and Kirkby Design, geometrics are in again.
Naturally, all trends will get an update so as to suit a more modern style. While geometrics are very ’70s, they are now reappearing in simpler and larger motifs that afford a more refined look than their traditional counterparts. Colours will also change, and a pared-back palette will accompany the regenerated patterns of years past.
If you want a room that looks like it has hopped off the pages of a magazine cover, you’ll need to add a few accents of visual interest. Patterns are key in this sense – and geometric patterns are especially eye-catching. Pair varied patterns in a neutral colour palette to avoid creating chaos.
For an industrial look, frame a classic bedroom with a geometric glass wall, replicated by subtle accents inside. While the rectangular shapes provide a sense of modernism, the Persian carpets and luxe textures take us back to the traditional.
Geometric patterns aren’t just for fabrics and framing. Decorative accents, like this angular light, express creativity within the trend. While the rest of the room is fairly soft and neutral, the boldness of the bedside light stands out, highlighting its angles.
Not only is this room perfect for winter (we would love to dive into that fluffy blanket right now), but it pulls off a classy look, too, while still incorporating a retro trend. With only one geometric element, the bedroom directs the eye towards it, and the gold accent gives a luxe aesthetic.
A monochrome colour palette is always in style, but it can start to feel a bit tired. Adding a patterned rug and angled glass wall breathe new life into a neutral space and it doesn’t require a massive renovation.
