In the master bathroom, designers created an oasis with a unique bathtub as the centerpiece of the showcase. Above it, a contemporary chandelier adds light on cloudy days and at night, while geometric prints on the wall add color to the space. The large picture window lets in plenty of natural light that makes the area feel warm and bright. This light is mirrored in the neutral wall color and the gray and white tile floor that was laid in a herringbone pattern to create a bit more texture in the space.
To create a fun space for the homeowners' little boy, designers anchored the space in the thing that he loves the best-cars. As the focal point for the space, the vehicle bed spread gives the room a youthful feel, but can easily be changed as the young boy grows. A navy accent wall complements the bed linens and anchors the space, tying in the unique paintings and blue lounge chair. To complete the space, a gray, geometric rug rests just underneath the heart of the room, giving the entire space dimension.
In the family room, the homeowners wanted a space that was a little more fun and family friendly, so designers livened the space up with bright colors and patterned wallpaper. The blue sectional and modern chair give the space plenty of seating, while orange and teal throw pillows brighten the room. Display shelves give the family a place to show off pottery and display magazines for easy access, while the geometric rug and bright art work finish off the space.
This remodel was in conjunction with a few other projects in one residence, all in preparation for the arrival of a new baby.
The shower stayed in the same place, although the plumbing was moved. The toilet was moved to the opposite wall, and the sink was moved to the center of the bathroom. A freestanding tub was then installed on the opposite wall from the shower. Classic white subway tile on the shower walls and tub wall create a clean backdrop for the geometric pattern cement floor tiles.
Using continuity in finishes and maintaining a simple, sleek and chic design allows the flow in this stunning, contemporary living space to transition seamlessly from the eat-in kitchen to the family room. A stunning Etch pendant light by Tom Dixon sets off the beautifully geometric shapes while an abundant use of white, from the frosted dining table to the long kitchen island, is interrupted by the use of wenge wood and green accents of the table settings. The island is designed as one long block with two sinks.
Immerse yourself into this stunning patio oasis and the troubles of the world drift away. Contemporary chaise lounges perched on a sun shelf providing poolside comfort and style. LED lighting provides a cooling, ambient glow to the pool and infinity spa while a fire/water bowl, fire table and geometric see-through fireplace gently warm the ambiance of this outdoor living space. A custom wooden trellis with sits atop a cozy lounge area and outdoor sofa, framed by cascading, elegant curtains in rich brown fabric.
Everything about Nikia’s style is effortless — a casual elegance that the designers worked hard to translate into her home. Small touches, like the evolving layers of geometric pattern that go from the table legs to the lamp base to the lamp shade create a subtle but palpable mix of simplicity and sophistication. On the couch, “M” — a lucky black cat named for the letter formed by the shape of his head and ears — sits across the room from the portrait that he didn’t model for, but could have.
Decorate your mantle or your favorite wall this autumn with an all natural leaf tapestry. Gather up your favorite fall leaves and press them until they are fully dry. Use removable adhesive to attach your dried, pressed leaves to the wall in overlapping rows. You can create a solid geometric shape, or space your leaves out at the top or bottom to give the illusion that they are falling.
In the master bedroom, designers took advantage of the natural light that spilled in from the sliding glass doors that provide patio access by choosing a neutral color for the walls that reflects that light and anchors the space. Then, fun colored bed linens were placed on the bed to give the room a little personality and bold pops of color, while the geometric rug beneath the bed helps to break the space up and give it some definition. Finally, designers added an Asian inspired headboard and industrial nightstands with bright orange table lamps to finish off the eclectic space.
The owner of this house wanted to revamp her French Country home with colors and textures that were more "her" after her divorce, so she had bright, girly colors installed in her dining room and throughout her home. The ceiling, once a traditional shade, has now been painted turquoise to match the rug and the dining room chairs. She then brought in neon yellow accents to brighten up the space, while the metallic wallpaper with a geometric design helps to continue that stylish, girly trend this homeowner so desperately wanted.
This modern, geometric pattern is inspired by the Ndop textiles of the Bamileke people of Cameroon. One of Africa’s most artistically lauded cultures, the Bamileke resist dye raffia fibers to create their amazing designs. Featured on a pouf (https://www.themine.com/poufs/aphrochic-ndop-pouf_g2928138.html) in black and gold this striped Ndop pattern adds a striking detail to any room in the form of extra seating.
A black and white kitchen opens to contemporary sitting and breakfast areas that incorporate colorful accents and varying textures. White waterfall marble counters cover the island’s black cabinetry, as glass pendants hang above. In the sitting area, velvet chairs in a deep cobalt color, accented by pillows with bold geometric prints, sit in front of a trio of large windows. A smooth lucite coffee table is topped with shaggy, sheep’s wool, and is anchored by a neutral rug. Mirrored panels in the nook reflect the room’s natural light, and the white table and mid-century dining chairs add subtle modern touches to the classic space.
This midcentury-modern gentleman’s case (fancy designer speak for dresser) is striking with its raised geometric design and would look amazing in ANY room. That’s the beauty of MCM case goods (aka storage pieces): The dressers aren’t always a “drawers only” affair. Many pieces were topped off with interesting-looking cabinet doors that concealed useful shelves or cubbies. These particular drawers are home to spare table linens and seasonal decor while the upper cabinet opens up to reveal a fully stocked bar.
Three-dimensional wall art goes a long way if you’re working with lots of blank space, and the plush variety is so fitting for a nursery. To achieve a more playful feel, mount a stuffed animal head above your crib. Thanks to the internet, you can find just about any animal you’d want – from a deer to a flamingo to a unicorn. For a more modern look, mount a plush geometric shape, like the edgy, black-and-white rain cloud here. Or, do both, like designer and stylist Live Loud Girl. You really can’t go wrong when it comes to fun, pillowy wall art.
To create this look, search your favorite vintage stores for glassware and dessert plates with pink or gold detailing. Use a basic white dinner plate on the bottom of every place setting. Top it with a geometric napkin (these are made from fabric purchased from Quadrille, Inc.) and the vintage plates. Repurpose the printable invitations as menu cards to top off each place setting.
The living room epitomizes the style of this home. Strong architectural details are complemented, not covered, by tastefully understated gallery walls. And once again the white walls and wood floors are the perfect backdrop for the home’s boldest color statement—an inviting velvet sofa in a soft, pink blush. Though small accessories, sculptures and pieces of art accent the room throughout, the biggest pattern statement in the room is made by the wood floor, the repeating diamond geometric blends seamlessly into the room while creating visual interest from the floor up.
Pick up a few black paint pens at your local craft store. Draw geometric designs onto solid white ornaments. Try polka dots, stripes and even hearts. This is a great project to get the kids involved too. They’ll love to see their creations hang on the tree. Black and white ribbon is an easy way to add some personality and texture to the tree. Instead of wrapping it our the tree in a traditional manner, cut small sections of the ribbon and drape it over single branches here and there.
If you like the idea of a patterned backsplash that won’t go out of style, consider a simple geometric pattern: stripes, diamonds or zigzags, for example. To create this chevron effect, designer Kelli Kaufer used hand-cut stained glass. She bought three different colors, cut them into 1-inch wide by 3-inch long angled pieces, and applied to the wall using a double-sided sticky mat. Then, she grouted with a non-sanded grout. “This backsplash can work with many different styles,” says Kaufer. “Depending on the color of the glass pieces, you can either go bold, creating a hip, modern look, or muted, for a classic, sophisticated style.”
