Geometric patterns are said to be all the rage in 2017. Although they began making an appearance in 2016, this pattern will surely be the front-runner this year. As you know art, fashion, design and beauty share common tendencies when it comes to the popularity of trends. It goes without saying that trends are cyclical, and therefore geometric patterns have reappeared because the 70s are back, but with a modern twist! Contrary to what some may think, geometrics are not strictly for modern homes, but have also made their place in a variety of different styles. Let’s take a look at how you can include geometrics in your home.
A really great way to accent a home with geometric patterns is with the use of poufs. Take one or a few to really dress up the space. Aside from being an accent, poufs count as multifunctional pieces because they can act as a footrest, additional seating or even a coffee table! Sounds like a great bargain!
Geometric patterns have never looked better on paper. Although it’s a quite popular choice for wallpaper, some may find it too overwhelming. So how can you include this trend in a way that will not bury your walls? Wall art of course! Opt for chic framed art that uses intricate geometric patterns and hang them on a wall that can use some sprucing up. Check out the Odelia trio, which is a great organic take on modern abstract art.
Another fun way to include geometric patterns in your home is with a great area rug. From trellis to an alluring Moroccan design, invigorate your space with a fresh pattern that provides a rich contrast with your flooring. Whether you decide to opt for a more neutral pattern or brighter colors, either option will definitely add visual interest and depth to your space.
All in all, aim to choose geometric designs that will give your home a curated look. Each piece should be selected as though your room was carefully assembled, in order to avoid it being too overwhelming.

Every year in the Spring, the color palette changes. Trends come and go based around these colors, and we tend to shift our home decor, furniture, and overall design themes as a result. It’s incredible, the amount of influence something as simple as a color palette can have, but it also makes a huge statement as to what we find appealing at any given time.
This year, of course, is no different. Pantone has been the standard for upcoming color trends for years. They release a ‘color of the year’ that defines trends for 365 days at a time. But, they also release color palette predictions based on seasons.
For the upcoming Spring season, it’s all about getting back to the natural beauty that surrounds us in different ways. Spring is a time for vibrancy, and appreciating nature. Pantone’s upcoming Spring colors absolutely reflect those moods. They’re taking a page from Mother Nature’s book with colors like Pale Dogwood, Greenery, and Niagara. More subdued and familiar tones like Kale, Hazelnut, and Lapis Blue also make the cut, blending the natural coloring surrounding us with comfortable items we’re familiar with.
What better time to appreciate the beauty of the natural world than in a blooming, flourishing Spring? Niagara will lead the color palette as the ‘it’ color for the season. It’s denim-like blue reflects an idea of relaxation, comfort, and familiarity. All of the great colors that make the ‘top ten’ list for the season are designed to do exactly the same. So, as you take a look around you this Spring, and try to decide which color palette to focus on for your home. Take a page from Pantone’s book, to select on trend poufs, picture frames, rugs, throws and other decorative pieces that reflect these color palettes. Not only will you be on trend, but nature’s color palette will find its way into your home!
