Design Geometry 101 !

Geometry is used in interior design more than you can imagine, from space planning to proportions to pattern play and of course to the shapes themselves! Skilled interior designers have the innate ability to find the 'golden ratio' with design and proportion and to make an aesthetically pleasing space based largely on a geometric explanations. 

Using pattern in a space is a great way to add a focal point or an accent feature depending on size, color and the style of a room. 

This modern master retreat is gorgeous with a colorful graphic pillow and a soft, romantic geometric wallcovering! The wallcovering pattern is perfectly proportioned for the size of the room.

Geometric wallcoverings can be bold and adventurous or soft and subdued depending on the size of the pattern and the color. This wallcovering is worlds apart in effect depending on color choice!


This bold geometric may seem overwhelming to some or exciting to others, but with the help of a room view and neutral colored furniture, it looks striking!


These adorable kitchens are modernized with geometric shapes and a fresh and airy vibe! We love the 'oval in a rectangle tile' and the charming teal and silver penny rounds!

Geometric patterns on fabrics add interest to a room and help to visually break up a space that has predominately solid colors! As you can see, the patterns vary from bold and vivacious to subtle and elegant.

In this modern office setting, the cabinet shapes mimic the rug shapes in a harmonious design! In this clean lined living room, the wall and floor tile add subtle geometric pattern to the room while the rug adds some eye catching interest and large scale pattern to the room!

Next week we will continue our study of all things related to geometry in design! Your high school geometry teacher would be proud!

First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.
