Shape up with Geometric wallpapers
Geometric patterns are absolutely key in interior design. Used in the right places they are a short cut to creating a room that meets the perfect requirements of good styling: incorporating pattern, scale and timeless design.

The perfect wallpaper choice for this luxury bathroom, the shapes of the interlocking oval rings mirror the shape of the bathtub taking centre stage. The lines are composed of soft tones that fade, flooding the pattern with light and dynamism.

Geometrics aren’t neccessarily about hard lines and angles. This mellow design is inspired by the art of Kalamkari block printing, as found in Persia and India. It is a simple floral pattern with softly rounded shapes and a subtle colour palette that emulates the effect of natural dyes. It works beautifully here to soften an otherwise overtly masculine setting.

Known for his bold use of colour, eclecticism, and geometric designs, David Hicks is acknowledged as one of the most exciting and innovative British interior designers of the late twentieth century.

Are you ready for the design trend that is the antithesis of Minimalism? It’s Maximalism, or “more is more” design, and it’s either going to enthuse all or your senses…. or be a bit too much to handle.
The regularity of the design framework on this geometrically placed pattern wallpaper brings a sense of organisation to this maximalist interior. In other words, it isn’t total chaos.
Above: Boxes by Boråstapeter
This wallpaper is incredibly calming and perfectly suits the simple and curated styling of the room. The arrangement of boxes repeated over and over means the eye does not need to worry about what comes next – this is what is often so relaxing about geometric design.
The paintwork has been kept consistent across the door and cabinetry, perfectly complementing the tones in the wallpaper and adding to the serenity of the space.
