home decor trends: know your geometry

Even though my home decorating style shies away from anything too modern, I am digging the trend toward geometric shapes and prints right now - pentagons, hexagons, triangles, and other shapes are all making their way into home decor via lamps, vases, terrariums, textiles and art.  I think it's an extension of the chevron trend that popped up in spring and summer.  In this post, I'll share some inspiration, shopping suggestions, and DIY ideas for incorporating a little geometry into your space this fall.

Do you like the geometric trend?  Are you incorporating any geometric pieces into your home?


  1. I love that stainless steel planter, and the pillow from Target! I'm not usually into really modern/geometric pieces but some of these are really great!

    1. My home decorating style is very farmhouse/vintage, but I think the industrial style that's so popular right now has led me to consider some more modern touches! I love an eclectic look anyway. The Target pillow is on sale right now, too!
