In Focus: Tactile Geometrics

Earlier this year we blogged about incorporating patterns into your home interior using bright colours and bold patterns. Whilst the trend for patterns hasn't gone away (we're not sure it ever will!), we're starting to see a more delicate style of pattern emerge.

The trend for tactile geometrics sees intricate designs combine with tactile surfaces, taking inspiration from a bygone era and uses the latest in modern technology to give a contemporary twist to vintage patterns that are set to become design classic of the future.

Adding patterns to your home, no matter how subtle they are, adds instant visual interest to a room. Freshome recently said it's the best way to create a room that ‘looks like it hopped off the pages of a magazine cover.' The more subtle and ‘classic' a pattern, the more likely it is to stand the test of time in your home for years to come. Something like our Caspari range creates a heritage statement with its warm, neutral marble featuring delicate movement and light fossils.

Classic twists on geometric patterns are also a huge trend right now as people become more adventurous with their décor. Instead of hexagons in bright, bold colours, think glossy, white hexagonal tiles on a kitchen wall to add both interest to a room and bounce light around, creating the illusion of more space.

Geometric shapes tend to have a modern feel, but as Oliverburns.com wrote about in their blog about geometric trends, they've actually been used throughout history as part of architectural and interior design. This means that a delicate and understated pattern paired with neutral or natural accessories such as wood and pale fabrics can create a timeless look and feel in your room that can be updated with accent colours as often as you'd like.
