Trend alert! Geometric shapes are trending in the interior design world and we’re here for it! What better way to incorporate a geometric design than on a wall? We’ve seen loads of inspiration on Pinterest for this exact idea and think you should give it a try too! You can choose a bedroom to paint a wall in whichever geometric pattern you’d like, just make sure the colors coordinate well with the furniture. Don’t be afraid to go bold, as long as you stick to a color scheme, it’ll be a stunning new feature to your home!

2. Hang Up a Mirror

If you have a small space, a mirror will be ideal to reflect light into your home and make it feel larger than it actually is! This can also be applied to a small room in your home that could use more light and create the illusion of more space. A circle mirror similar to the one in the picture above will bring a modern look to your home for an instant update. You can hang a mirror in your entryway above your entry table to bring more light in or within your living room to open up the space.

3. Mix Photos with Artwork

Instead of only having pictures on one wall and artwork or décor on another, combine the two for a visually appealing wall display. Create an eye-catching detail to your living room for when guests come to visit by grouping a few photos and an art piece close together in a sort of grid system for organization.

4. Place 3 Together

5. Make a Statement

Go for something bold! Own a painting you haven’t hung up yet because you thought it’d be too distracting in a room? Surprisingly, that painting is perfect for making a statement you’ll enjoy! Take the abstract painting above as an example, as this painting can bring a calming feel to any entryway, hallway, or living room with its cool-toned hues. Artwork like this one will instantly enhance the look and feel of your living space.

Incorporating shelving or wooden shapes, painted or stained, will give dimension to a wall and provide additional storage space if needed. Perfect for your home office, these shelves can be useful to place books and notebooks or simply used for décor purposes only to fill a room with personality. Take a bunch of shapes and separate them out asymmetrically, similar to the image above, to add a modern style into your home.
