About Trend: Colorful Geometric Accessories Keep Rooms Fit

Perhaps it’s the shorter days, but this time of year always has me looking for bright colours to heat my insides up. Fall tendencies join in with the emphasis on bold color mixes, typographic elements and lots of geometric patterns, shapes and silhouettes.

It’s possible to choose a big, daring accessory or add the geometric look on a smaller, neutral colour. There’s definitely something to fit your own personal style. But whatever approach you decide on, you are going to bring heat and pattern to your residence at precisely the exact same time.


Light Up the Family Set – $799

Husband and wife design team the Novogratzes are going strong with a new line at CB2. It is as New York and vibrant as they are, including this favorite light-up wall bit.


Ikea PS 2012 Blue Candlestick – $19.99

Ikea’s PS 2012 set includes a contemporary candlestick holder using a modular, flexible type — rearrange it to suit your mood and the event. Even when the piece asymmetrical, its contemporary lines maintain powerful and stable.

Tumbling E Vintage Eye Chart – $345

Typography is a tendency in decoration. Join it without losing your classic vibe by hanging this timeless eye chart in your wall. The repetition of this “E” is mesmerizing and abstract.

Jonathan Adler

Multi Bargello Honeycomb Pillow – $165

Jonathan Adler might be the king of all things colorful and nautical, as well as his latest cushions don’t disappoint. I particularly enjoy these hexagonal targets. Try one of them on a just colored sofa.


Ikea PS 2012 Red Bowls – $4.99

These red bowls out of Ikea fold flat when not being used, which further highlights their grounding in geometric types. Careful joints around the base of the bowl seem fantastic, and keeping them is a breeze!

West Elm

Optic Arrowhead Throw – $89

Update your living room in one fell swoop using a two-wheeled throw like this one from West Elm. The optical effect will add texture to your living spaces.

Pottery Barn

Faceted Antique Mirror – $349

The repetitive triangles with this mirror subtly nod into the geometric tendency. However, the result is not as striking, with small snippets of the room mirrored from all of its angles. It’d add a fast burst of detail into an entryway.


Erich Ginder Dot Dash Hanging Lamp – $435

“Pleated lampshade” takes on a whole new significance when used to explain such pendant lights. The view from the inside is just as gorgeous — I’d hang one of them over a dining table so people could see the inside in addition to the outside.
