How to introduce the geometric home trend at your place

Change things up with home styling tips from interior designer Rebecca Richmond.

The geometric trend is easy to sprinkle into your home; there are so many ways to do it. You could add to your storage with some geometric wire baskets in black or metallic.

This is a great way to store towels in your bathroom – roll them and put them by your bath or vanity. Pair with similar bathroom accessories such as toothbrush holders, and you're set.

Big and small

Go bold and hang a hexagonal mirror in your bathroom, install geometric taps and finish off with geometric patterned towels. Decorative aspects like candles or trinkets can be a subtle nod to the trend if you want to start small.

In the kitchen

In the kitchen, introduce the look with bowls and small appliances in your desired print. Russell Hobbs, for instance, has a smart geometric range. Keep it simple and use it to dress your space.

Scale matters with a geometric print. Stick to a small area if you don't want it to overwhelm.

Deco decor

In your bedroom you can find plenty of opportunity to feature this trend, from a little – a couple of jewellery boxes on your dresser – to a lot, like a bed cover in a beautiful geo-printed duvet. This trend has its origins in the Art Deco era so you could go completely Gatsby with golds, blacks and loads of sparkle.

It's a great way to deliver a hint of grown-up glamour, rather than going down the girly route.
